7-day certified training

FOR THE PURPOSEFUL LEADERS OF THE INTERDEPENDENT WORLD

“The SQ training course has helped me to provide my clients with an excellent science-based framework to lead their companies. It was the essential link to bring leading edge science and leadership together.”

Bert Overlack, Germany

A clear purpose of the leadership calling is the defining feature of individuals, organizations and companies at the forefront of the increasingly interdependent 21st century – purposeful action has become the distinguishing feature of a new world reality. Leaders from all walks of life are joining this quest in their professional, as well as personal lives. We invite you to join the group of leaders equipped with clarity and a sense of direction that are already taking decisive steps to the forefront of this new world reality and inspire others to follow.

SPIRITUAL INTELIGENCE AND PURPOSE

SQ is our meaning-centred intelligence on which we build our access to deep meaning, vision, values, and an over-arching sense of purpose in our lives and leadership. It is spiritual intelligence, which tells us who we are and what our lives are about.

QUANTUM LEADERSHIP 

Leaders of today face the greatest technological upheaval and restructure of purpose since the Industrial Revolution. Quantum thinking guided by the defining principles of quantum physic equips leaders with skills and knowledge to use both/and thinking, model future scenarios, encourage questions and experiments, and thrive on uncertainty.

quantum leaders use the defining principles of spiritual intelligence to nurture a higher, quantum intelligence to thrive in new global realities
