Leadership skills are applicable in many contexts—the workplace, schools and classrooms, volunteer organizations, and even within families. People who take initiative, who can strategize, plan, and accomplish goals to achieve their vision are considered good leaders. But what are the skills that complement leadership. This is where the five intelligence come in.

  1. Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.  Emotional intelligence (or “emotional quotient,” as it’s sometimes known). A person who doesn’t value or respect his    co-worker’s will not inspire them to achieve team goals, which obviously leads to a decline in productivity. Emotions are quite strongly correlated with performance and productivity since teams whose members feel emotionally supported and appreciated through their challenges and successes will likely be happier and more productive.
  2. Spiritual Intelligence is defined as the ability to behave with compassion and wisdom while maintaining inner and outer peace regardless of the circumstances. Spiritual Intelligence is about how we behave—how we actually make decisions and act—in the everyday, stressful world of interacting with difficult people and situations, which is a situation that all of us face on a regular basis.
  3. Mental Intelligence is related to your mental ability’ or ‘reasoning ability’. An individual who is able to analyse complexity in numbers, language can come up with more right answers and make better overall decisions. Although mental ability is said to be a good predictor of performance for leaders, it’s not the only predictor, nor is it only important one.                                                                                                                                                        
  4. Physical Intelligence is not just about “fitness” – although being fit certainly seems to be part of it. It comes as no surprise that people  who have a good relationship with their own bodies  are more confident in their dealings with others.  A leader who is sick or tired due to poor physical fitness can't guide a business toward fiscal fitness.                                                                                                                                                            
  5. Moral Intelligence indicates how you cope with making mistakes. Applying moral intelligence like responsibility, forgiveness and compassion to relationships in the workplace impacts your environment in more powerful ways than your amazing skills at crunching numbers. Moral intelligence helps you develop trusting relationships in the workplace.                                                                                                                Meeting and interacting with the thought leaders of today at the GYLF ConcLive will help the fellows learn how they too can become holistically intelligent.
