Prof George Yip Available to Speak on Organizational Intelligence (OQ) for Leaders

George Yip

Prof George Yip is now available to speak on Organizational Intelligence (OQ) for leaders.

The qualities that help managers rise in the organization — emotional intelligence, high IQ, technical competence, and so forth — don’t necessarily make them effective once they’re in a leadership position. For that, they need organizational intelligence (OQ), or the ability to get the organization to do what they want it to do. Those with organizational intelligence have the following competencies: they can effectively communicate the top strategic priorities, foster an organization-wide sense of “how we do things here”, get things done even in the absence of consensus, stage moments of theater, and rebel from the top.
