leadership + people intelligence

We believe that thriving relationships are the most sustainable, long-term asset a company or organization can possess, yet very few invest in them. They are the “lost ball” of any endeavor, game, or quest.

ever feel like things are a tangled relational MESS?

Today, companies have a whole new burden that was essentially non-existent just two decades ago: they now have to train their employees in basic life skills. With the fragmentation of families and a growing distrust of civic institutions, much of this burden now falls on companies to teach their employees how to budget, make eye contact, resolve conflict, and develop life/work balance.

This is where we can help.

we can do better.

People Intelligence is found at the intersection of 3 things:

  • PQ – Personality Intelligence – this is about “personal awareness” and it includes:
    • Tendencies
    • Patterns
    • Strengths
    • Challenges
    • Blindspots
    • Weapons
  • EQ – Emotional Intelligence – this is about “others-awareness” and it includes:
    • Communication
    • Relationship
    • Empathy
    • Empowerment
    • Presence
    • Push + Pull
  • SQ – Skills Intelligence – this is about “task-awareness” and it includes an understanding of:
    • Leadership
    • Resilience
    • Alignment
    • Execution
    • Multiplication
    • Performance

We work in partnership with GiANT Worldwide to bring our clients into this life-changing and culture-avalanching intersection, based on the following principles:

Seven Principles

People are not a company’s most important resource. Relationships are. Relational competency is the most profitable long-term asset a company has. Yet it is so rarely invested in, integrated, and supported.

Relationships are the very essence of a company’s existence. If they can’t thrive within their own relationships, then they have no real story to tell.

Most companies today carry a new burden: they now have to teach basic life skills. Twenty years ago, these skills were assumed.

Technology is the new margarine. There is no substitute for simply being human with one another.

Equipping the whole employee yields reinforcing returns at work and home, leading to satisfying work relationships lead to improved home relationships, employee morale, retention, corporate culture and profit. 

Organization is not the enemy of relationship, if it’s good organization. Sound organizational practices (i.e. clear structure, communication, decision making processes, integrative efficiency, people care etc) can make work relationships so much easier.

Every company knows how to make change. Few, however, know how to transition. Change is external, but transition is internal and always late to the party.

just lean in.
