The Power of Social Intelligence
Individuals with strong social intelligence can sense how other people feel, instinctually know what to say in social situations and are self-assured, even in a large crowd. These individuals are described as having “people skills,” but what they truly possess is social intelligence.
Interpersonal skills are one of the most overlooked leadership and organizational development tools and are critical for communication and relationship success. Understanding the science behind non-verbal communication and harnessing your potential through proven social science techniques, ensures increased personal and professional power, respect, & influence.

What is your
Social Intelligence Quotient (SQ) ?
Improving one’s Social Intelligence Quotient is accomplished by altering attitudes and behavior in response to the present environment.
Unlike the standard IQ test, the Social Intelligence Quotient or SQ is a statistical abstraction. While it uses a similar ‘standard score’ approach (the same used in IQ tests with a mean of 100) it is not a fixed model.
The SQ leans more to the theory that intelligence is a complex hierarchy of information-processing skills underlying an adaptive equilibrium between the individual and the environment.
What Factors Determine SQ?
The social intelligence (SI) quotient algorithm is a combination of:
1. Socially aware population classification.
2. Positive attitude to progressive social issues.
3. Attraction and openness to new experiences.
Is SQ the same as EQ?
