Succinctly, What is TQ™ Training?
TQ™ training is based on the Transilience theory of leadership intelligence recognizing the multifaceted nature of leadership and emphasizing the importance of cognitive, emotional, and social capacities in effective leadership. The training emphasis is context and objective driven.
In today’s education systems, there tends to be a heavy emphasis on cognitive capabilities, often neglecting the development of essential social and emotional skills. TQ™ training addresses this imbalance by offering a framework and practices that enhance social and emotional intelligence, fostering optimal individual and organizational functioning.
By integrating TQ™ training into leadership development programs, negotiation and or advocacy training, training for high performing individuals and teams builds the core skills and capacities essential to navigating simple and complex challenges, adapt to changing environments, and foster innovative and collaborative approaches to leadership.
This balanced approach to leadership intelligence, encompassing cognitive, social, and emotional aspects, contributes to more holistic and effective leadership in diverse contexts.
In summary, TQ™ training provides the much-needed balance to cognitive-focused education, recognizing that leadership is a multifaceted endeavor that requires a comprehensive set of skills and capacities for optimal individual and organizational functioning.
Assumptions of Transilience Theory
These five assumptions capture the key aspects of Transilience Theory, highlighting the inter-connectedness of systems, the importance of optimizing core systems, the influence of social-biological context, the capacity for change, and the role of intentional development in fostering adaptability and resilience.
1: Interconnectedness of Systems
Individuals and humanity are interconnected systems within larger systems, and any change in one part of the whole has ripple effects throughout the entire system.
2: Optimized Core Systems
When our core systems (survival, social-emotional, cognitive) are harmoniously optimized, we unlock our true human potential.
3: Social-Biological Context
Our genetic, cultural, and ecological factors shape the context in which human life emerges and evolves.
4: Capacity for Change
Humans possess the capacity for individual and collective change, navigating challenges and adapting to various forms of change.
5: Intentional Development
We have the agency to intentionally cultivate and strengthen our physical, social-emotional, and cognitive well-being, contributing to our overall adaptability and resilience.
