The Networked Leader is a book, blog and podcast project by JOE Houde.

JOE first became interested in the power of connections and social networks in high school, where he declared his main hobby as 'meeting people from other schools" and acquired the nickname 'JOE from Chariho'.  Since that time, he has earned a BA in psychology from Drew University and an M.Ed. and Ed.D. in Adult Learning from North Carolina State University.  His doctoral work on learning in social networks is the inspiration for this project.

For the last 20 years, JOE has run his own business designing and teaching executive education.  You can see his work, along with the work of his network of colleagues, at
