Publisher's Summary

A breakthrough book on the transformative power of collaborative thinking. 
Includes a PDF of charts and graphs to help determine your personality type as well as tips on how to work better with other personalities. 
Collaborative intelligence, or CQ, is a measure of our ability to think with others on behalf of what matters to us all. It is emerging as a new professional currency at a time when the way we think, interact, and innovate is shifting. In the past, "market share" companies ruled by hierarchy and top-down leadership. Today, the new market leaders are "mind share" companies, where influence is more important than power, and success relies on collaboration and the ability to inspire. 
Collaborative Intelligence is the culmination of more than 50 years of original research that draws on Dawna Markova's background in cognitive neuroscience and her most recent work, with Angie McArthur, as a "professional thinking partner" to some of the world's top CEOs and creative professionals. Markova and McArthur are experts at getting brilliant yet difficult people to think together. They have been brought in to troubleshoot for Fortune 500 leaders in crisis and managers struggling to inspire their teams. 
When asked about their biggest challenges at work, Markova and McArthur's clients all cite a common problem: other people. This response reflects the way we have been taught to focus on the gulfs between us rather than valuing our intellectual diversity - that is, the ways in which each of us is uniquely gifted, how we process information and frame questions, what kind of things deplete us, and what engages and inspires us. Through a series of practices and strategies, the authors teach us how to recognize our own mind patterns and map the talents of our teams, with the goal of embarking together on an aligned course of action and influence. 
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not ideal for audio

What disappointed you about Collaborative Intelligence?

This is more like a text book - lots of lists, codes, technical terms, etc. It's hard to follow in audio form. If you're interested in this topic, buy the physical book.

This was so enlightening... not only for dealing with people at work but also at home... it was insightful to understand that how we think translates to how we might behave differently. I loved it!
