What is the future of work? One thing is clear, the 21st century workplace looks vastly different than the past century.
What are the skills that will allow you to get access to the work you want to be doing? The high paying, high responsibility jobs that make a difference?
My guest today, Erica Dhawan, argues that Connectional Intelligence (CxQ) is a key attribute of the next round of successful leaders.
The ability of a person to connect people and ideas together and then make leaps from what they know into the adjacent possible is a running theme of The Art of Adventure podcast, and a big part of Erica’s new book: Get Big Things Done.
Erica is a highly trained (MIT, Harvard) and highly practiced (with her consulting firm CoTential) leader in helping entrepreneurs and businesses step into the future.
This podcast episode will help all you entrepreneurs with a purpose start making the connections you want to accomplish your big goals!
