If you know anything about me, then you know that I’m always talking about EQ (emotional quotient) it’s importance for leaders. Well, I thought it’s about time I say a little something about IQ and the significance it has in leadership. More importantly, is IQ something we can improve?
We know that the habits of the people around us can be contagious – for better or worse – but what about their leadership skills? If you work closely with great leaders, is it possible to become a great leader without any effort on your part? In other words, can you catch leadership or is it something that’s learned?
What do leaders have that sets them apart from everyone else? I would argue that it’s their mindset. A real leader has an approach state of mind. What do I mean by that? Well, think about it. There are two states of mind, the Approach State and Avoid State. Take a look at how you react or respond to what’s going on around you when you are in either state.
