Coined by leadership expert Erica Dhawan, Connectional intelligence™ (CxQ) is the ability to build and realize value from networks of relationships, to harness units of knowledge and reuse them to innovate, to convene communities, to marshal a variety of resources for breakthrough results. In our world, with its embedded digital and global infrastructure, the power of connectional intelligence holds exponential and previously untapped, potential for breakthroughs. To harness CxQ, we have to work with the youngest members of our workforce (millennials) differently – because they are ahead of the rest of us in harnessing connective capacities.
In this session, Erica shares insights into how to bring out the connectional intelligence of your teams and utilize the talents that Gen-Yers, Gen-Xers & Baby-boomers all bring to the table. You will learn:
- To understand the resources each generation brings to the workplace;
- Decode the connectional capacity of each generation and use that knowledge to significantly improve innovation;
- Transform workforce conflicts into growth points;
- Create processes designed to maximize the ability to connect people, ideas and resources for breakthrough results.
