WOMEN Get BIG Things Done

Success and leadership are often attributed to having smarts, passion and luck. But in today’s hyper-competitive world, even those qualities won’t get you to the top. The game-changer? A modern, feminine leadership skill called Connectional Intelligence that allows us to harness the value of relationships, and leverage those networks to innovate and solve challenges.

Join us at the NAFE Women’s Leadership Summit in Minneapolis on June 6th, 2018, for high-powered and practical opportunities that will help you learn how to advantageously use connectional intelligence to soar to next-level career growth.

The sessions throughout the day will be modeled after the ideas and concepts from the book, Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence, and will feature the leading authority on Connectional Intelligence, Erica Dhawan. Attendees will explore the 5 C’s of Connectional Intelligence, and hear the secrets to mastering these tools and strategies. Learn to leverage your feminine leadership style to build stronger connections in order to get big things done in all aspects of your life.

We are excited to bring this forward-thinking and inspiring day to you at the Allianz Life Headquarters in Minneapolis, MN on June 6th. Bring your mid-level women as well as the high-potential high-achieving women your organization is grooming for leadership roles.
