It’s all about networks.

Connectors are critical in a network. Who creates the link between Sally and Sam? But so, too, influencers are important as well. Who sets the styles and the tone?

Employers are looking at their employees and seeing who’s the best-connected, and who people rely on and trust. And the employers are willing to pay more to those who are better connected and more influential.
