“Intelligence Is Overrated…”

May 1, 2012

Forbes Magazine Gives Us The Real Secret to Success

Emotional Intelligence has become a pretty-well accepted interpersonal quality in the business community.  But it goes even further.  Your MQ (Moral Intelligence) and your BQ (Body Intelligence) are also important ingredients for a successful career.

This week, I’m speaking about this very topic at a conference for CEOs in Vancouver.  Interest in the importance of emotional and social intelligence is increasing tremendously.  As more and more people from all walks of life look for ways to distinguish themselves, the Forbes article “Intelligence is Overrated: What You Really Need To Succeed” by Keld Jensen provides practical steps to expand one’s range of capability and competence.

Leaders recognize the need to connect with their workforce, peers and those senior to them at a deeper level – in a way that captures minds and hearts.  Social intelligence enables that connection.

I urge you to read this article and consider the ways you can strengthen your skills in these areas that are, and have always been, critical to sustained success.
