There are a few Qs you may be familiar with: IQ and EQ are the obvious ones. Recently I was introduced to a new, and possibly more powerful Q, Spiritual Intelligence or SQ.
SQ has nothing to do with faith or religion. It’s a way to describe that place within each of us where compassion, wisdom, and love reside. Once we’re able to tap into this place, we can achieve a state of equanimity to manage our emotions and respond calmly to others.
Amy Lynn Durham believes we need SQ at work. More human-centric workplaces are created by leaders working on their SQ first, and then creating environments where people are seen, heard, and wanted.
In this episode of People at Work, Amy Lynn shares her own journey to nurture deeper SQ, and how she’s made it her life’s work to help others do the same. She also talks about ways to build SQ, and what it looks like at work when SQ thrives.
This conversation really piqued my interest as a growing human and leader, and I hope it’ll do the same and more for you.
