Bill Gates once said ‘The idea that some skills, like managing people, are not correlated with scientific IQ — in fact some of them are negatively correlated to scientific IQ — took me a while to figure out.’ So what is this ‘People IQ’ all about?
To me, the key to developing people skills/IQ lies in the way One is able to connect to Oneself ( his/her own realities) and to Others ( other’s realities).
The realities can be vastly different from the images created historically. Reality is dynamic and offers opportunities whereas images might not.
The first 3 days motivated me to question many images that I had clicked mentally and start conversations with people to connect to OUR realities. It’s a journey that is starting to get more interesting; and with Sameer and Sheeja supporting me, I guess I will be able to reach the end or rather a ‘new beginning’.
If ‘People IQ/skills’ is even remotely in your thoughts, I would recommend that you have a chat with Sameer or Sheeja.
