We live in a world of endless meetings, emails, and constant cross-team dysfunction, duplication and delays. Our collaboration skills aren’t always working to unlock better value in our business. 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 bottom line impact by harnessing the power of networks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn successful tactics to address communication overload and foster authentic, innovation-driving relationships
  • Discover tools to break down silos and keep teams aligned, accountable, and motivated both in-person and online
  • Gain specific actions to foster loyalty, respect, collaboration, and innovation across stakeholder networks, regardless of physical distance

Flashes of Genius - Learning the Art and Science of Creativity

Allen Gannett

@Allen 

The standard view of creativity is one of constant brainstorming punctuated by sudden flashes of genius - it is not something you can be intentional or methodical about. This talk will disprove this, explain how flashes of genius actually happen and provide ways any creator can increase their odds of having one.

The talk is based on two years of research for Gannett's book The Creative Curve (June 2018, Penguin Random House). As part of this, he interviewed dozens of the world's leading creatives such as celebrity chefs, multi-platinum musicians, billionaire entrepreneurs, and fine artists. In addition, he talked to the leading scientists and academics who study the field. Based on this, he found four patterns—The Four Laws of Creative Curve—that all creatives engage in. These laws are not only scientifically valid but can be followed by any aspiring creative. This talk will give a sneak peek into Gannett's research and a look at how you can leverage it.

Key Takeaways:

  • You will learn the neurological and psychological mechanisms behind flashes of genius
  • How you can learn to have more of these so-called aha moments through the mass consumption of content
  • How famous creators engage in a strategy called “the 20% principle” that is accessible for anyone
  • How you can time trends to create the right ideas at the right time
