Situational Intelligence (SQ): Assessment by The Decider
Situational intelligence (SQ) measures one’s ability to make good decisions in a changing, evolving environment. The Decider’s SQ score is a holistic measure of exactly this ability.
SQ is, in turn, built upon subcomponents: a person with situational intelligence displays three characteristics. First, you must be able to Jump in and know where you are. That is, you must be able to size up an environment and quickly identify significant patterns and key drivers in that environment. Second, you should Know what you can do. That is, you should be able to identify options and think ahead. Third, you must be able to Do it and see if it works. This means that you should be able to assimilate feedback from your environment and adapt to that feedback in a flexible manner.
