As the book mentions, Connectional Intelligence is and will become an increasingly required quality for leaders in our connected world. As a Management Consultant for a large consulting firm, I definitely see the application of the concepts included in the book towards engaging our people and the book has truly provided me with some ideas on building and helping build connections (internal and external) that can serve as a differentiator in the workspace and help address the needs of our people and clients.
The biggest issue is often how ordinary people can put the ideas to practice--check out the back of the book, it's literally a run-down of how to accomplish this. The guides & quiz at the back of the book open insight into a much broader way of thinking about how you do business and how you interact with others.
As an soloprenuer and leader within organization, this book is highly relevant to me. Embrace your potential to connect the dots around great products, ideas, and people. Check this book out and let me know what you think.

The book is back to back case studies of how and where social media has helped people and organisations. One word of caution, the book was written in 2015 and while the case studies are relevant, in the world of social media they are old.
The book also provides a methodology for you to follow, with additional case study materials at the back to help you. As the book is about empowerment and activation the authors also ask that on buying the book you make a commitment to them to do one big thing. It’s a great position as authors to take which is not to write a book that people put down, but to write a book that through it’s readers crates change in the world.
You might also want to look at the book “All You Have to Do Is Ask” by Wayne Baker, which is about getting things done by asking questions.
This book studied the concept of the capabilities that humans have when they work together towards a goal. The concept it is not new as every big achievement in mankind has been done by collaboration (at least on the ideas level) of many people. However, the book names this collective work as Connectional Intelligence.
The study of this new terminology (and old practice) is done in this book by a collection of success stories where people, together, did things that it would seem impossible before. Most of the stories are in our own age which makes them much more interesting.
In general, I got disappointed as it was not what I let to believe from the title, but, this book is a collection of interesting stories which makes it an interesting read (just be patience in the beginning, or just skip the first chapter).
Das gesamte Buch lässt sich eigentlich auf dem Cover zusammenfassen. Mehr erfährt man durch das lesen auch nicht.
