Why EQ Trumps IQ in the Workplace

Investment banks are not exactly bastions of touchy feely sentimentalism. They are no nonsense, hard driving, competitive and bottom line focused. The people who live in these worlds are some of the highest IQ people on the planet.  So why did they invite Jim Dethmer to talk to a group of their high potential, next generation leaders about FEELINGS? Because they are part of an ever-growing group of leaders who know that IQ will only get you so far, and that EQ (emotional intelligence) can take you even farther. The EQ body of research has been around for several decades. Research has shown that EQ trumps IQ as a predictor of long-term success in a leader’s career. Dethmer not only walks audiences through the story of how and why EQ trumps IQ, but breaks down the mystery of emotional intelligence, literacy and wisdom so that during the talk people experience the power of EQ that they can take into their everyday lives.

What is Integrity Really?

Many leaders and organizations list integrity as one of their top values. When asked what integrity means, most say something similar to “doing the right thing.” This answer makes sense, but it’s a completely inadequate working definition. This presentation takes you inside board rooms where executives think they’re practicing integrity and all they have to show for it are lawsuits and office drama related to—you guessed it—integrity. In this presentation, the audience will learn how Dethmer and The Conscious Leadership Group understand and teach integrity to leaders and organizations across the country and around the world. Your attendees will walk away empowered and excited to create a list of the ways they may be out of integrity, and armed with tools to bring integrity back into all areas of their life. The reward is a lot less drama and freed up energy to direct wherever you choose.
