12 transformational principles of SQ

 

  • Self-Awareness – To know who you truly are, what you believe in, value, and what deeply motivates you;
  • Vision & Value Led – Acting from principles, deep beliefs & living accordingly;
  • Spontaneity – To live in and be responsive to the moment. Dropping the “baggage” of assumptions and conditioned thinking;
  • Holistic – Ability to see larger patterns, relationships, connections. Sense of belonging to the whole, of knowing oneself as a whole;
  • Field-Independent – To be able to stand against the crowd and follow your own convictions;
  • Humility – Sense of being a player in a larger drama and true place in the world. Growing beyond arrogance and self-assertion;
  • Ability to Reframe – Standing back from the situation/problem and seeing the bigger picture; seeing problems and opportunities in a wider, or new, context. Changing one’s paradigm;
  • Ask Fundamental  Questions – Need to understand things, to get to the bottom of them. Valuing good questions over necessarily finit and short-term answers;
  • Celebration of Diversity – Regarding other people for their differences, not despite them. Opening oneself to others’ points of view;
  • Positive Use of Adversity – Ability to learn from mistakes, grow and learn from setbacks and suffering, to turn problems into opportunities;
  • Compassion – Quality of “feeling-with” and deep empathy. Knowing that you are not just your brother’s keeper; you are your brother;
  • Sense of Vocation – To feel called upon to serve, to give something back, to leave the world a better place than you found it.
