My colleagues and I have developed an online personal network assessment and feedback tool called the Leader Network Diagnostic (LND). This tool can be used by educators, trainers, and learning and development professionals to help students and leaders at all levels improve their professional networks. Watch this video to learn more and visit our website 

networkleader.com to take the LND yourself or to learn about how using the LND will benefit your organization.
