But there is a famous study that says that IQ only accounts for about 15% of success. If intelligence isn’t the key to success, what is?

  1. As a speaker and training consultant, my audience does not care about my resume or my technical credentials, but only if I can help them become better at what they do. Knowledge is only valuable to the extent it can be effectively communicated and shared with others. Competence, commonality and impression will allow me to relate to an audience and paves the way to for a productive interaction. Active listening and respect for others will open the door to many possibilities… including your own success.

    • Agree with all, David.

  2. Great blog! One thing I find important in people is the ability to overcome challenges. The people who are very intelligent, never studied in school, and never had to learn to overcome obstacles may not be good in crisis situations. The person who struggled to obtain good grades, has failed tests, lost at business, and still pushes through to succeed in the end is going to do better at life, in my opinion.

    • Great points, Cherie. Thanks!
