Episode Description

Cindy Wigglesworth defines Spiritual Intelligence as "the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion while maintaining inner and outer peace regardless of the situation." In her new book, SQ21: The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence, Cindy helps us understand how spiritual intelligence is analogous to such concepts as IQ and emotional intelligence (EQ). Using clear, practical language she defines the "21 skills" that comprise spiritual intelligence and outlines the steps to develop our own spiritual intelligence. Cindy refers to her method as "spiritual weightlifting"--a process whereby we work to develop our "muscles" that enable us to act from a more loving and peaceful place. This is especially crucial for leaders who seek to make decisions from a higher level while immersed in stress, complexity, and volatility. Join me and my guest, Cindy Wigglesworth, as we explore Spiritual Intelligence as a way to bring more peace, wisdom, and compassion into our lives.
