What’s your CIQ?

Eugene Kim is co-founder and principal of Blue Oxen Associates, a think tank focused on improving collaboration. He recently spoke at the Packard Foundation’s GEO Learning Conference on collective intelligence…or the concept that none of us is as smart as all of us.

The value of any network increases exponentially with the size of the network, says Kim. (Think of it as the “LinkedIn Principle.”) It’s also the power of Parents as Teachers.

More than 2,500 local affiliates employing about 10,000 parent educators who serve hundreds of thousands of children and families. And that’s just in the U.S. Add in Parents as Teachers in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and now Switzerland…well, you do the math.

Next week we’ll be calling on all of you to support a very special Parents as Teachers effort. No, not with money but with a few minutes of your online time.

Watch for it on Monday, September 26!
