Compassionate Quotient (CQ): “CEO of LinkedIn, Jeff Weiner, is a big proponent of this and did a great talk on this recently at a graduation speech at Wharton. In the workplace, CQ is about empathy but with real action. He describes it as aspiring for compassion - something he explains as walking a mile in the other person’s shoes; and understanding their hopes, their fears, their strengths and their weaknesses. And it means doing everything within your power to set them up to be successful. In an AI based world not only will CQ drive team performance but also company performance.”
Modesty Quotient (MQ): “With the speed of business model changes alongside technological advancement, traditional hierarchies are being stripped away into horizontal network-based structures. This means leaders need to show a much higher level of humility and engagement. This may require the business leader to take on external advice and help internally by engaging more freely with individuals in the organisation who are a few levels below them. This approach is natural in many of the global internet titans but is somewhat lacking in the more traditional companies.”
