Praise for Experiential Intelligence
Soren has done it again! XQ is an essential concept for understanding what it takes to be successful in our rapid paced and constantly changing environment. Much as Soren’s books have deepened our understanding of innovation, XQ pushes past traditional views of intelligence to redefine what all leaders and organizations needs to build as competencies for the future.
Experiential Intelligence delivers a simple yet powerful framework for next-generation leaders to delve deeper into how their life’s experiences shape who they are and how they show up and lead. The book broadens the lens with which we can consider how others’ life experiences add to the capabilities of our organizations, which opens new doors to what the future of inclusion holds.
With the increased awareness of how an individual’s unique contributions and lived experiences can bring about transformation to the workplace, the new lens of Experiential Intelligence broadens the talent conversation and opens up possibilities for building a more diverse workforce.
We all intuitively understand that experiences play a role in our leadership style. Experiential Intelligence uses powerful storytelling to take us on a journey to deeply understand our own XQ and teach us how to maximize the impact it has on our leadership and business success.
Soren Kaplan wades courageously into a half century of deep and often polarizing research on human intellect and emerges with a brilliant synthesis that provides the much-needed third leg of the intelligence stool. Experiential Intelligence is the perfect complement to IQ and EQ.
The ability to understand your inherent capabilities as a product of life experiences is the essence of Experiential Intelligence. Leaders can harness XQ to unlock their own hidden strengths and that of their teams to drive transformative outcomes.
Experiential Intelligence provides an enlightening look at achieving personal and professional success and satisfaction.
Experiential Intelligence is the “third leg of the stool”, along with IQ and EQ, to comprehensively assess and build the disruptive capacity of your employees and organization.
“Learning by doing” has long been a tenet of the educational process as it motivates and promotes participation. I am grateful to finally have a book that provides concrete examples of how experiential learning can shape the mindsets, abilities, and skills that not only help students succeed, but can also lead to personal growth, development, and success for the adults who work with them!
A long overdue blueprint to more intentionally access the mindsets, abilities, and know-how gained from your unique life experience. I highly recommend that you add this book to your learning journey.
Leveraging Experiential Intelligence is the new imperative for unlocking the peak potential of individuals, teams, and organizations.
In a world in which false assumptions are regularly at play in human relations, this book mines the treasures latent in all human beings and helps us welcome unknown talent in ourselves and others.
Many successful performers don’t have Ivy League degrees, so there are clearly indicators of readiness beyond academic credentials. So, what is the comparative value of 15 years of experience? Does Experiential Intelligence deliver something a prestigious college degree does not? These are important questions to consider. From an equity perspective, we also know that both race and socioeconomics can unfairly limit education and career potential. This understanding helps companies recalibrate for and reconsider individual potential, while delivering improved access to untapped talent pools.
Experiential Intelligence provides an approach for how to gain self-awareness into your unique assets to foster both personal and professional growth. Soren’s book gives keen insights into how the experiences we have form our current mindsets and how to examine our own self-limiting beliefs.
Experiential Intelligence artfully blends concrete research with compelling storytelling to clearly show what leads to success. Let Soren Kaplan guide you to higher performance as a leader and for your organization.
This must-read book delivers deep insight into how our personal and professional experiences influence how we show up and perform at work, in our relationships, and life itself.
Experiential Intelligence reveals how to create a culture of empowerment and innovation that enables true sustainable growth and engagement.
A major game-changer for the field of transforming organizations.
