About Q's

Q stands for the integration of many things that are near and dear to Danah Zohar’s heart and work.

Q = Quantum physics, Questioning our lives, and Quest for happiness. 

Q also symbolizes how our soul is constantly serving as a “cue” or compass to guide us to truth. If we learn to access and listen to our souls and hearts more, we can continuously use it as our “Q” to help us live happier professionally and personally.

This can be done by learning about our different Quotients that measure our intellectual (IQ), emotional (EQ), spiritual (SQ) and physical (PQ) intelligences. One way to do this is to learn the 12 principles of spiritual intelligence (SQ). Leaders that have done this have been able to apply these principles and are happier. They are able to positively influence those they work with. They become better role models for more sustainable behavior, which results in a positive work culture that is ultimately more profitable.

Credo of a Great Leader

I believe global business has the money and the power to make a significant difference in today’s troubled world, and that by making that difference it can help itself as well as others. I envisage business raising its sights above the bottom line. I envisage business becoming a vocation, like the higher professions.

To make this possible I believe that business must add a moral dimension, becoming more service- and value-oriented and largely eliminating the assumed natural distinction between private enterprise and public institutions. I envisage business taking responsibility for the world in which it operates and from which it creates its wealth. And I envisage myself becoming one of those business leaders who are “servant leaders”–leaders who serve not just stockholders, colleagues, employees, products, and customers, but also the community, the planet, humanity, the future, and life itself.
