Thinkers50 Podcast: Andrew Kakabadse & the Five Qs

andrew kakabadse

In this podcast brought to you in partnership with the Brightline Initiative, Stuart Crainer and Andrew Kakabadse discuss the Five Qs and how they can help to understand what it takes to make great leadership in an often contradictory environment:

  • IQ (cognitive intelligence)
  • EQ (emotional intelligence)
  • PQ (political skills)
  • RQ (resilience quotient)
  • and MQ (moral character)

The Five Qs help us to understand why actions that seem totally irrational can be seen as totally rational when you use their framework.
