Spiritual Intelligence

The Leadership Skills Beyond Emotional Intelligence

A Workshop for Business Professionals

It is now well accepted that effective leadership takes more than high IQ. In the past two decades, Daniel Goleman’s groundbreaking work on Emotional Intelligence (EQ) has been widely embraced by business. But in today’s complex business environment, even EQ is not enough to meet the challenges of modern leadership.


This workshop is designed for leaders at all levels, regardless of job title, who want to increase their effectiveness at work and enhance their leadership skills. Veronika Tracy-Smith, PhD, and Steve Sphar, JD, will present the SQ21 model of Spiritual Intelligence, a rigorously tested skills-based method that helps reduce stress, tension and ego-induced drama in the workplace, while increasing the experience of wisdom, compassion, peace and resiliency. In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The research, testing and validation supporting the SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence model

  • The workplace benefits of developing Spiritual Intelligence through a skills-based approach

  • Specific tools for accessing your Spiritual Intelligence even during times of stress

  • How Spiritual Intelligence, like the skills of any intelligence, can be developed over time

  • Why Spiritual Intelligence is distinct from religion or any specific belief system


The SQ21 model of Spiritual Intelligence was developed by Cindy Wigglesworth and is described in her award-winning book, SQ21 – The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence, now printed in five languages.  Increasingly, the value of Spiritual Intelligence in the workplace is being recognized by top executives and business leaders. In the forward to Cindy’s book, John Mackey, founder and CEO of Whole Foods, writes:

“I love this book. I haven’t just read it – I have studied it and practiced it. I think the ideas in here are crucial for anyone who wants to grow wiser, more compassionate and to help create a better future.”
