Summer Reading List: Get Big Things Done


get-big-things-doneWhether you’re at the beach, on vacation, or enjoying a few extra hours of sunlight each day, summer is a great time to catch up on reading. Earlier this summer we wrapped up our “Creating Future Value” series addressing how industry megatrends will impact the way we do business. If you enjoyed this series, you might enjoy some of our other reading recommendations. Over the next few weeks we’ll recommend some of our favorite business and industry books and blogs to get you through the rest of the season!

After you read my introduction to the “Creating Future Value” series, I recommend you read “Get Big Things Done” by Erica Dhawan and Saj-Nicole Joni.

We’ve all heard of IQ and EQ. In their book, Dhawan and Joni introduce us to CxQ (Connectional Intelligence). Connectional Intelligence is the capacity to derive value and meaning from diverse networks of people, ideas, and knowledge. The authors help us rethink the concept of networking (it’s not just for extroverts anymore) in the social era. We’re all hyper-connected these days through our online digital tools. Dhawan and Joni guide us to connect intelligently; create meaningful change through a myriad of inspiring stories big and small, including how a suburban pumpkin farmer’s connective intelligence is influencing agricultural practices in India.

After reading “Get Big Things Done” I am looking forward to hearing Dhawan speak on Connectional Intelligence at the 2015 Boston Financial Client Forum.
