What’s your LQ: Life Intelligence Score?

At some point in your life, you may have had your IQ (Intellectual Quotient) measured. IQ testing was designed to measure your analytical and linguistic skills. I experienced my first IQ testing at the end of grade three when students were being evaluated for an accelerated course of study. I did not really understand it at the time; I just remember being disappointed that I was not chosen to skip a grade. What a terrible way to brand our children!

In the ensuing years other “Q’s” have emerged, including Goldman’s EQ, designed to measure Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is your inner landscape of emotional self-awareness. An emotionally intelligent person is perceptive of and sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others—skills that are now viewed as vital to business and life success.

Make. Work. Better.
