Intrapersonal intelligence offers you amazing tools for personal progress at work.
Why then do many fail to benefit from intuitive intelligence?
Become who you want others to see in you, and you’ll advance a personal IQ that stokes enthusiasm from others too. It’s about bumping up against daily stressors without melt-down-trends of leaders with low intrapersonal intelligence?
Intuitive IQ enables you to tame your amygdala, work incrementally, and maintain balance during mental growth spurts. Yes, even when others around you strike out themselves or criticize your game.
Have you seen peers offer well being to others – even during busy schedules? People tend to emulate and admire them for holding together when others cannot cope.
Intrapersonal IQ plans ahead and comes prepared, so that others don’t panic from stressed tone.
To develop intrapersonal intelligence, is to manage time. For the personally strong leader, enough hours expand any day to tackle targets, as well as cultivate inner contentment.
Have you noticed how the highly developed intrapersonal leader, who plans ahead, also tends to remain flexible when unexpected or disappointing events strike?
Time management runs the intrapersonally intelligent leader past stress, in much the same way beagles race past distractions to reach a hunter’s catch. It means cultivating well being by accepting consequences of an imperfect situation. It’s about accepting reality when things go less well. It adds the kind of security that refuses to blame others, and takes responsibility for personal actions in spite of setbacks.
Intrapersonal intelligence reflects ethics at its core. For instance, if you tend to take responsibility for actions, even when results are less than hoped for, your intrapersonal intelligence kicks in to offer integrity, in spite of loss. It teaches you to design a backup plan for leadership events that could go wrong, for instance. Then, rather than venting, naysaying or fretting, you engage good tone and emulate well being that tosses solutions into the ring during difficult times.
Good tone draws on intrapersonal intelligence to build goodwill with those who disagree, so that you can learn from opposing views. The highly intrapersonal leader understands that perfect results are not as high a priority as one’s approach to respect others, or speak about the possibilities rather than complain about problems.
Move forward with adventure in mind, because you maintain well being, not because the workplace hands you advantages, and you will be surprised at unexpected melodies that come from intrapersonal intelligence. You know you are intrapersonally strong when you show confidence that comes from deep reflections, and from everyday acceptance of strengths and weaknesses. The opposite of blame and frustration is intrapersonal intelligence that takes the good with the bad, and finds balance in both.
The mind-bending qualities of intrapersonal magic show up well in your thoughtful communications, refusal to speak poorly of others, deep reflections for growth from lessons learned in your mistakes, and willingness to facilitate others in ways that you enjoy being engaged or guided.
Intrapersonal leaders inspire the rest of us to consider the value in mind-bending traits. For the past few weeks we worked with an especially strong intrapersonal group of MBA leaders at The Bittner School of Business at St. John Fisher College. That’s why we’re all so looking forward to engaging the wider business community on Thursday night for the big Celebration of Innovation. Not only will real workplace problems get confronted with innovative brainpowered solutions – but fellow leaders will be facilitated by an amazingly intrapersonal group!
