Connectional Intelligence: How to Get Big Things Done

Success and leadership are often attributed to having smarts, passion and luck. But, in our current hyper-competitive work, even those gifts are not enough. Erica Dhawan argues that the game changer is a thoroughly modern skill called Connectional Intelligence—a skill that anyone can attain. In this session you will learn what is involved and how you can use connectional intelligence to unleash the breakthrough competitive advantage you need to succeed as a nonprofit leader in the 21st century. Erica will share secrets of how the world’s movers and shakers, including a dynamic panel of pioneers, use Connectional Intelligence to achieve their goals and ultimately get big things done at work and in life.
