It moves us from being good at influencing to being inspirational. It moves us from empathy to compassion and profound humility. It moves us from operating from ego to operating from our highest, noblest self. With humility comes an openness of perception, whereby we can see new information. Using a combination of 4 intelligences (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) one can overcome barriers to their own career success and lead themselves and their organizations to greatness.

Excerpt From Episode
With deep respect for the work Cindy continues to do, we began our conversation on how she discovered the value of understanding the multiple intelligences in leadership development. She shared that at a young age she thought if she learned enough applying her IQ, she would be poised to make the difference in the world her soul longed for. A disparaging realization however grew throughout her 20 career in a Fortune 50 Company (in Human Resources) that spurred her towards producing a PHD sanctioned body of work that is being used to transform the leaders of today. Cindy defines Spiritual Intelligence as: “the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation.” SQ21 is a diversity-appropriate and skills-based way of discussing powerful human motivators and success factors. To date, Cindy has trained over 300 coaches to support those implementing the 21 Skills of Spiritual Intelligence into both their professional and personal lives.
