FLR | [LQ] Leadership Intelligence With Mindsets – Commitment | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

For the past number of years, we have been coaching clients on Leadership & performance. Over that period, we have worked with thousands of leaders on all kinds of projects.

One key element.

[LQ] Leadership Intelligence

Like IQ & EQ, [LQ] is a unique mix of elements that align a leader’s natural abilities & style with a mature set of skills – it’s the fusion of nature & nurture.

This next set of FLR’s series focuses on the [LQ] principles and building blocks.

Why does it matters.

How it can transform.


Along the road with you!
