Q3: Why is it important to leverage the power of your network to answer questions, solve problems, and find solutions in both your professional life and personal life? http://www.via-cc.at...

Erica Dhawan
A3. Networks are powerful, but building a network doesn’t necessarily lead to measurable change. You have to use your #connectionalintelligence to harness your network in the right way. #getbigthingsdone
Mark Babbitt
A3: One person’s little idea, when we leverage the power of our connections, becomes so much bigger. #getbigthingsdone
Jason Eng
You'll never know who will have some great expertise to share!

A3 A network by definition provides multiple angles/perspectives of evaluating a single problem. Having these perspectives drives creativity and #innovation...
Mark Babbitt
A3: Call it “social barn raising” – a member of our community needs help, we show up tools in hand.
Elizabeth Kvedar
The quality of your network counts
Jason Eng
@DikBiz it would be like a really big brainstorm session, with multiple options for solutions.
Casey Lucas
Collaborating within your Network is a great way to build it, build expertise, and gain credibility! @IBMSocialBiz
Sarah Gibb
A3: Your network can connect you to more information or people outside your realm. It's the power of loose connections!
Mark Babbitt
A3: We’re seeing this over and over in the Social Age: people want to help, regardless of ownership. #getbigthingsdone
Jason Eng
If you have the question, most likely others do too.
Casey Lucas
Agreed!! @ElizabethKvedar "Quality beats Quantity"
Phylicia Teymer
Great question! A3: Just like your network has numerous other connections to others, your network also has insights into numerous other areas. We each offer unique perspectives and backgrounds - the "intellectual melting pot"
Jerry Chuaypradit
A3: There is a sense of trust within a network. Gives you the opportunity to act quicker on important decisions.
Erica Dhawan
If you have the answer, others might have the question :)
Wayne Hendry
A3) Collaboration and diversity of opinions delivers more as no one person knows all. I always learn from others!
Mark Babbitt
A3: Whether we refer to it as “connectional intelligence” or “OPEN” – we benefit from collective wisdom.
Erica Dhawan
A3. Using networks well can also speed up the rate at which we solve problems. Look at @CrowdMed, @Foldit, @Innocentive. We now have amazing opportunities to find answers in unexpected places. The key is asking the right question.
John Furrier
crowd based solutions will bring a new level of production (it's free) and if done correctly is super powerful. Peers and colleagues are the key
Ted Pappas
Reaching out to your networks allows you to reach a larger audience and gain more valuable insight and perspective!
Jerry Chuaypradit
@CaseyCrl It's important to make the right connections. Or at the very least being able to filter out the noise.
Jäcob Pintle
and I think networks are organic... it means that they will grow, change, etc. depending on the role you play at specific time in your organization.
Elizabeth Kvedar
@furrier , it is true and the way it's transformed productivity is powerful
Bob Pulver
A3: no single person or even small team has all answers; must leverage #collectiveintel
Samantha Klein
A3: The crowd is a perfect meritocracy, where age, race, education, gender etc no longer matter and the quality of the work is all that counts.#socbizchat
Ariana Gradow
@edhawan Great examples of companies that are using the crowd to help them solve issues. Everyone has different strengths; collaboration can create great success.
Elizabeth Kvedar
@JacobPintle Good point, it's important to remember that our networks must evolve over time
Casey Lucas
Totally agree with you, @JerChuay!
Bob Pulver
@furrier not always free, depends on how you incentivize, but certainly more efficient
Athar Afzal
A3 - information from as many sources is more powerful then only getting it from a few sources
parWinr
@24hourTed can you share some tips how do you leverage your network? If you have connected with thousands of people, how do you keep up the conversation?

Q4: When speaking about connectional intelligence, is it more important to ask, ‘What do we know?’ or ‘What do we NOT know?’ http://www.via-cc.at...

Erica Dhawan
A4. What do we know is the first question. Take stock of the connections and resources you already have and how you can leverage them. #getbigthingsdone
Mark Babbitt
A4: Both! We start with the facts at hand (what we DO KNOW). Then we build a solution based on the UNKNOWN.
Jason Eng
A4) I like asking what I don't know, because then I'll try and go find the answer.
Amber Armstrong
to quote @isocialfanz it's better to ask who knows what you DON'T know #inspirational
Haley R. Schmidt
What do we NOT know. There is always something to be learned from every connection.
Dik_Whitten2.0
A4: Sometimes it helps to rephrase the question - asking instead - WHO do we know/not know..?
Mark Babbitt
A4: When we begin to focus on what we do NOT know, we ask better questions… and become better listeners. #getbigthingsdone
Erica Dhawan
A4. Before making new connections, ask what do we NOT know. This will guide how and who else you connect with. #getbigthingsdone
Jäcob Pintle
both =) because it will give the approach you will follow to find people and to accept people in your network... a kind of: this is what I know and this is what I need..
Sarah Gibb
@JasonEng_ I like your thinking Jason! Sometime focusing on what we know can limit our thinking.
Ted Pappas
A4: I find asking myself what do I not know opens more doors and more conversations finding the answer.
Amber Armstrong
listening is such an important point. Sometimes we ask so we can tell the answer #fail
Samantha Klein
A4: I'm all about the WHO and the WHY. Without those we have nothing. #socbizchat
Mark Babbitt
A4: Nothing worse than sitting in a room with a bunch of people who think they know everything. #justsayin
Jason Eng
@Sarah_Gibb And my network can help me see what I don't know. =)
Wayne Hendry
A4) Both are important! You cannot know what you don't know if you don't know what you know.
Ted Pappas
@MarkSBabbitt absolutely! Spot on Mark.
Jason Eng
@ambarmstrong Listening is huge, and listen with the intent to learn.
Elizabeth Kvedar
@DikBiz You're right, sometimes we have to change the question
Bob Pulver
A4: well you need to admit the 'known unknowns' to seek the right help
Phylicia Teymer
A4: I think asking the question of something I may not know, allows others to share what they know. Then listen...
Casey Lucas
Agree...@samjoyk - Samantha great point!
Jason Eng
@pulvereyes I agree with you, you have to admit that you might not know it all. That's tough sometimes.
Bob Pulver
A4: need to acknowledge own biases, else you start solving problem w/ incorrect hypotheses
Bob Pulver
@JasonEng_ agree, ppl have difficulty asking for help
Jason Eng
@pulvereyes Could be a cultural challenge too
