Connie’s Story

From the Newsroom to the Boardroom

As an award-winning broadcast journalist for NBC and ABC stations, Connie spent the early stages of her professional career interviewing a virtual who’s who of power and influence. From sitting presidents to titan-of-industry CEOs, she noticed that despite their differences, these global leaders shared several unique patterns, regardless of industry, gender, age, and other socio-cultural conditions.

Connie became determined to quantify these influence patterns through science.

Leaving behind an accomplished broadcasting career that resulted in five Emmy Awards, two Telly Awards, and induction into the Radio/TV Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame, she spent the following years establishing her expertise as a prominent social scientist working to accelerate these influence patterns with leaders around the globe.
