The world is changing rapidly. Most of the skillsets we use today will be irrelevant very soon. Several jobs that exist today will be extinct very soon. Artificial intelligence-powered apps and robots will replace all of them.
Corona pandemic has fast-tracked most of these developments. COVID is rewriting the rules of the game, and artificial intelligence is automating them. Acute talent deficiency is another pandemic; all of us will face very soon.
Ok. Let us park the pandemics for some time and talk about our eyesight. Here is a quick background of the eyesight.
The average human eyesight is around 20 by 20. People with 20 by 30 vision don’t get a driving license in most countries. Anything around 20 by 1000 is considered total blindness. This condition is also called No Light Perception. Just for comparison, Hawks have a 20 by 2 vision.
That’s okay! What about our mindsight? Is it 20 by 20? Is it More? If so, is it sufficient?
Unfortunately, the answer is “No” to all questions.
Mindsight of an average corporate worker will be around 20 by 800. Yes. You heard it right. It is 20 by 800. It is near blindness. Like No Light Perception, this condition is called No Data Perception. People with No Data Perception, cannot comprehend what they see. Their ability to make sense from any data is almost negligible. They cannot sense even an avalanche until it fully hits them. It is called Mind Blind situation.
If you are not sure, let us estimate the mindsight of the key functionaries in our governments. What does the corona incident tell us? We had a much better chance to detect the contagion much earlier.
Some of the world’s massive fires could have been controlled with just two mugs of water, had they been detected at the right time. Mind vision is the key to spotting opportunities and threats at the right time.
The Growth Quotient book is all about improving your mind vision.
Many managers in the corporate world think that their employees need to have an Intelligence Quotient and Emotional Quotient to be successful. These two quotients were no doubt, helpful until the last decade. But it is no longer the case in this era of the “fourth industrial revolution”.
Large and successful organizations realize that all their leaders need to possess a third quotient as well. This is called Digital Quotient.
However, very few people know that there is a hidden fourth quotient that plays a significant role in our personality development, growth prospects, and the proper development of the rest of quotients.
Yes. Such a powerful quotient has been hidden for a very long time. It is the Consciousness Quotient. None of the other three quotients can be leveraged effectively without acquiring the consciousness quotient.
So the four quotients are:
1. Consciousness quotient.
2. Environmental quotient.
3. Digital Quotient.
4. The Number Quotient
Consciousness Quotient gives you powerful-signal receivers through which, you can perceive. Self-awareness is critical to acquire the rest of the quotients. Think of this as a giant satellite dish inside your brain.
Environmental Quotient provides us a lens that helps us understand the ecosystem around us. This could include our team. our clients. other colleagues. various policies. Latest trends and so on. In short, it covers the whole environment. You can understand now. Traditional EQ is just a subset of this.
Digital Quotient gives you another set of advanced lenses that enables us to fine-tune three dimensions of tech-savviness: self, workplace, and family. Think of this as a powerful radio telescope.
Number Quotient enables us to make sense of the data we see. The more you acquire this, the lesser you will be at the risk of mind-blindness. Intelligence Quotient is a subset of this quotient. Think of this as a microscope.
All these quotients are collectively called Growth Quotients.
You can wear these lenses and can improve your mind’s vision significantly. Each of these lenses will help you look at the world with a unique perspective.
What is the outcome of a blurred mind vision?
A stunted growth that breeds dissatisfaction, disappointment, distress, and depression.
Ok. These quotients are good. But, let’s talk about hunger now.
“Whenever” we are hungry, our stomach sends a strong signal to the whole body. Immediately, our eyes start the search operation. Our tongue joins the mission with the taste sensors. The nose filters out the smells. The mouth begins to secrete the saliva. Hands and legs are at their best. In a nutshell, the whole body works in tandem until we finish a plate or two. Most of the time, this kind of over-cooperation results in super binging also!
What about our brain?? Is it endowed with all these facilities?? How do you know when the brain is hungry?? How do you sense if someone feeds it toxic food??
You brain is starving silently. It’s time to act on it! Curious to know how others are managing this?
Well, all successful leaders in the world have a Mind Position System fitted to their brains. No, this is not like a pace maker or similar electronic gadget. By following a set of rules and practices, you can fit this on your own.
The mind positioning system helps them to navigate through any tough and uncomfortable situation. The positioning system has an input-output sensor and processor. Therefore, toxic input is rejected and toxic output is never produced. You can also get this if you want. We will see how to get one in this book.
That’s not all! This course also introduces you to several “practical and time tested” methods to manage your workplace much efficiently.
You will master the following proven methods:
All these methods are proprietary tools and techniques invented by the author. You will not find them anywhere else.
OPEN method for better communication.
A SIMPLE method for effective communication and presentation.
PATH method to get customer delight.
HEAL method to heal the wounded clients and team members.
SUIT method to resolve team conflicts.
