In this world, interconnectivity is in crisis. Functionality and financial rewards seemingly guide our working relations and are affecting our ability to relate through others and ourselves. The human perspective seems to be lost, leading to divided and less productive teams and organisations.
The Connection Quotient (CQ) enables an honest, courageous and humane interconnection to form while still focusing on financial outcomes and results – developing these relations to improve the business networks they serve. The CQ enables us to illuminate our human qualities and use these to connect with others, discuss differences, expand insight and encourage the development of new ideas. The CQ will introduce a new workplace culture where organisations and teams can approach the personal and professional through a more transparent and inclusive style. Ultimately, the CQ makes it possible to play ‘hard on the ball, and soft on the individual’.
In this Lunch & Learn session, we’ve been exploring this new framework. Marco Buschman provided some practical insights that you can apply directly in your (business) life.
