Adversity Quotient - Turning obstacles into Opportunity
With AQ Paul Stoltz has done something remarkable: He synthesizes some of the most important information on how we influence our own future and then offers a profound set of observations that teaches us how to thrive in a fast changing world.”- Joel Barker.
We each dace an average of adversities a day and our adversity quotient (AQ) is the precise, measurable, and unconscious pattern of how individuals respond to adversity. This 19 minutes video program based on Paul Stoltz’s best selling book, shows how your AQ can predict, with statistical reliability, who will prevail, who will give up, and who will crumble in the face of adversity. This video combines Paul’s overview of key learning points including Expanding Human Capacity, The Silent Toll, your adversity Quotient, and CORE(the four dimensions of AQ). He then applies his learning points to the real –life survival story of world famous Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton and the crew of his ship, The Endurance. The story is depicted through original black and white photography of the ill-fated 1914 expedition.
