The Next Dimension of Leadership Coaching

IQ and EQ can take you to the top. But can they keep you there?

“My knowledge, experience, and sharp people skills have always helped me excel. But why aren’t they helping me now?”

“I’m so good at managing people. Why can’t I manage myself?”

Even the most seasoned leaders get these nagging questions, especially when faced with a massive challenge that shakes their confidence and self-belief.

And this inner conflict is not new.

Eons ago, Arjuna, too, felt the same on the Kurukshetra battlefield. Despite being one of the greatest, most experienced warriors, Arjuna was overcome with a flux of doubts and emotions when he came face-to-face with the Kaurava army.

What turned Arjuna’s story around?

Clarity of purpose.

IQ  can enhance performance.

EQ  can improve people skills.

But without knowing your Purpose, the ‘Why-you-do-everything-you-do,’ IQ and EQ can prove ineffective, especially during a crisis.

A well-shaped Spiritual Quotient (SQ) clarifies Purpose.

That’s why it’s imperative that leaders & coaches today embrace the third dimension of leadership coaching – the Spiritual Quotient.

In this edition of Coach Guru, we bring clarity on why SQ completes a leader and the invaluable role of coaching in enhancing SQ.

Do ponder over your Purpose as you pore through these pages. Wishing you a Purpose-full day, year & life ahead!


For leaders, potential without purpose is ineffective. Coaching can create impactful leadership by addressing the gap between Potential and Purpose. Find out how from our article “How Coaching Fills Gaps in Leadership,” which was featured in the Times of India.

Read here how SQ can prepare leaders and organizations to counter the challenges of today’s world.
