SQ21™  – Spiritual Intelligence
SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence Assessment | COPIA Leadership

Why This Assessment

The heart of leadership lies in the hearts of leaders. Leaders lead by ‘being’ not by ‘doing’. A leader is a leader of people not of statistics or strategy. Leaders are in charge of people’s hearts and spirits. So, it becomes critical that they are in charge of their OWN hearts and spirits – they need to be operating from their highest Self.

The SQ21 assessment is a comprehensive tool that measures and evaluates various aspects of your spiritual intelligence. By taking the assessment, you will gain a deeper understanding of your spiritual strengths and areas for growth.

If you seek a tool to deepen your spiritual understanding and enhance your personal growth, the SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence Assessment is an invaluable resource. You can cultivate a greater sense of purpose, meaning, and connection by gaining insights into your spiritual intelligence.

What is Spiritual Intelligence?

Spiritual Intelligence or SQ, can be described as “The ability to act with wisdom and compassion while maintaining inner and outer peace (equanimity), regardless of the situation.” Experiencing and integrating the skills of Spiritual Intelligence can have a profound impact on our energy, our awareness and our behaviors.

As we enter a new era of leadership the SQ assessment opens the door to a deeper understanding of keys skills that are essential.

  • As we learn to distinguish between Ego Self and Higher Self and to keep Higher Self in charge, we become progressively more aware of our triggers and less reactive, thereby saving significant amounts of commotion, time and energy.
  • Our actions become purpose and value driven, as we increase our Awareness of Life Purpose and Awareness of Values Hierarchy.
  • The more we develop our awareness of the interconnectedness of all life, the more we strengthen our ability to be a wise and effective change agent. And as it becomes clear to ourselves and others that we are not just self-serving, our influence and power to impact reality increases exponentially. This makes for outstanding leaders and team members.
  • Creativity, learning and problem solving are highly inhibited when we are in turmoil. Learning how to quickly shift back into a calmer, wiser and more compassionate space can hugely increase our ability to find solutions.

What You’ll Learn About Yourself

The SQ21 is a proprietary online assessment developed by Cindy Wigglesworth, founder of Deep Change. It includes a series of questions and produces a report that defines and assesses your level of development for each of the twenty-one SQ skills which include:

  • Awareness of one’s own worldview
  • Awareness of the worldviews of others
  • Keeping your Higher Self in charge
  • Being a wise and effective change agent

These are skills or competencies that can be practiced and developed through clearly-defined levels. The assessment uses “faith neutral” language and is a powerful tool for self-reflection and coaching. One important point to note is that we are each in charge of our spiritual path and it is up to us to decide which skills we want to develop.
