JumpStart - Raise Your EQ

April 15, 2022

Can I let you in on a little secret?

I have never had my IQ tested.

And, do you want to know why?

I don’t want to find out that I’m NOT as smart as I THINK I am -- LOL.

A person’s IQ has been used for many years to determine how well someone will do in life and yet a new science has quietly emerged over the last few decades, that of EQ - Emotional Quotient.

My guest on today’s JumpStart is Chris Fuller an international bestselling author, speaker, and consultant, among other things, we discuss:

 

* The #1 quality/characteristic of an effective leader

* How EQ impact your effectiveness 

* How your wiring/personality impacts your EQ
