Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence Kindle Edition
We typically associate success and leadership with smarts, passion and luck. But in today's hypercompetitive world, even those gifts aren't enough. Get Big Things Done argues that the game changer is a thoroughly modern skill called Connectional Intelligence. Virtually anyone can maximize his or her potential, and achieve breakthrough performance, by developing this crucial ability.
So, what is it? Put simply, Connectional Intelligence is the ability to combine knowledge, ambition and human capital, forging connections on a global scale that create unprecedented value and meaning. As radical a concept as Emotional Intelligence was in the 90s, Connectional Intelligence is changing everything from business and sports to academics, health and politics by quickly, efficiently and creatively helping people enlist supporters, drive innovation, develop strategies and implement solutions to big problems.
Can a small-town pumpkin grower affect the global food crisis? A Fortune 500 executive change her company's outdated culture through video storytelling? A hip-hop artist launch an international happiness movement? Or a scientist use virtual reality games to lower pain for burn victims? The answer, you'll read, is a resounding yes. Each of these individuals is using Connectional Intelligence to become a power player to get big things done.
Erica Dhawan and Saj-nicole Joni's Get Big Things Done unlocks the secrets of how the world's movers and shakers use Connectional Intelligence to achieve their personal and professional goals--no matter how ambitious.

“Good leaders increasingly need to nurture new sources of expertise and ideas beyond what they know … to succeed and to be inspired. Get Big Things Done is just the guidebook for making the most use of your networks to spark change and meaning.” ―Beth Comstock, Chief Marketing Officer, GE
“Get Big Things Done is a passionate look at a new wave of leaders. It's full of inspiring stories about imaginative ways to forge meaningful connections and achieve audacious goals.” ―Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take
“Innovation in the Social Era happens when we connect people, ideas and things. Get Big Things Done spotlights the power each of us has to generate big value.” ―Nilofer Merchant, Author of 11 Rules of Creating Value In Social Era
“The essence of creative inspiration is seeing something in a new way. This inspiring book shows us the incredible creative power we have when we connect outside ourselves in meaningful ways. What the authors call Connectional Intelligence will be at the heart of how we as individuals, teams, and companies create – solutions, value, trust, and loyalty – in the 21st century.” ―John Seifert, Chairman/CEO Ogilvy & Mather, North America
“As our interconnectedness grows, so does our collective responsibility to ask the hard questions. Get Big Things Done reminds us not only that our action and inaction can have enormous consequences, but that we have the tools we need to tackle the world's biggest problems. It is both an inspiration and provocation to create the world we of which we dream. Buy this book for yourself and share with others who want to act now.” ―Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO of Acumen and author of The Blue Sweater--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

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).

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.
