In this week’s episode, hosts Brandon Miller and Darren Virassammy dive into the BONUS Manager Intelligence Skill – Intellect.

Managers who invest in the Intellect skill are continuous improvers and always challenge themselves to learn and grow. In this episode, we will teach you how to grow this skill and lead your team from a place of humility. The practice of increasing this skill is unique to each manager, we all learn in different ways. We will explore specific ways for you to increase your confidence in strategic decision making by staying present and being in tune with your surroundings. High Intellect managers engender team unity and cooperation.

The Highs and Lows of the Intellect Skill

  • High: I am always learning and challenging myself and my team to grow in knowledge and understanding. I am a continuous improver.
  • Low: I am set in my ways. The way my team has done things is how we will continue to do things. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I can struggle with change.
