When Being Smart Makes You Dumb
There is an ongoing debate in organizations over which is more important, IQ or EQ. Which one leads to greater success?
I am not sure what Adam Grant's take is on this debate, but I do know that he doesn't believe that IQ is the end all be all of organizational or leadership success.
How do I know?
Because he says so.
"Mental horespower doesn't guarantee mental dexterity."
These are all lines from his most recent book Think Again where he espouses the belief that it's not just our ability to think that counts - it's our ability to think again that matters.
When we are open to learning, we think like a scientist, we test our hypotheses, we challenge our assumptions, we don't let our ego blind us to the realities in front of us.
What's something that you want to think again about?
