Intellectual Curiosity – The Power to Learn and Think

Intellectual curiosity (CQ) may be one of the top five indicators/predictors of a leaders effectiveness, productivity and career attainment. That might be a surprise to some but not to most. While Intellectual Curiosity is nuanced, complex and advanced, it is still a skill that can be learned, trained, fine-tuned and executed. You probably didn’t hear much about the importance of cultivating CQ when you were in school or the first couple of jobs in your career. Because these skills are perceived as soft, creative or advanced their criticality to new leadership is often missed. Unfortunately that is missed opportunity for young leaders to integrate the power of curiosity into the their early leadership mosaic which would accelerate the growth and development of their career. Your curiosity inspires growth and deeper understanding of both the world and people around you.

Intellectual Curiosity is a critical part of the Great Leadership equation.

Great Leadership = (IQ * CQ * EQ)

Without CQ it is not possible to be achieve great leadership. CQ is the critical glue that binds together our Intelligence and our Emotions.
