Researchers who study successful people agree on the following: Your IQ and cognitive intelligence are at best moderate predictors of your success in life. In other words, they are necessary but insufficient predictors of sustainable success throughout life. The talents that got you where you are today may not get you where you want to go in the future. Successful people have a wide variety of skills that help them succeed, including self-awareness (understanding your styles, strengths, weaknesses, and how you are perceived by others), resilience, interpersonal skills, influence skills, political skills, and the ability to bring out the best in others, including your direct reports, peers, and bosses). You will leave this seminar with a specific set of ideas, tools, and best practices that will help you bring out the best in yourself, others, and your organizations.
