Executive Summit Keynote: Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence

Monday, April 17 at 8:45 AM - 9:20 AM CT
Marriott Marquis Chicago, Level 4 | Grand Horizon Ballroom

We typically associate success with speed and smarts. But in today’s hypercompetitive world, even those gifts aren’t enough. Erica Dhawan argues that the game changer is a thoroughly modern skill called Connectional Intelligence (CxQ). As radical a concept as Emotional Intelligence was in the 90s, Connectional Intelligence is turning people into superconnectors who accelerate innovation, break down silos and foster breakthrough impact. This session will help participants understand the practice of using connectional intelligence as the key to purposeful collaboration, resilience, and business success. Attendees will shift the notion of collaboration from more meetings and emails to productive engagement that improves speed and quality of service, increases subject matter expertise and specialist sharing across silos, reduces cross-team dysfunction and delay, and eliminates duplicative work.


This session is part of the Executive Summit agenda and requires separate registration.
