Keynote Speakers- Dan Gallagher & Joseph Costal: The Generosity Quotient

This program introduces leaders to a new term Generosity Quotient TM – one’s ability to give. If IQ measures cognitive ability, and EQ measures one’s ability to manage emotions, then Generosity Quotient TM captures leadership potential by measuring one’s capacity to “give.” Giving is defined as much more than charity and philanthropy. The program will help leaders rethink their approach to work. They will make the intentional decision to (a) have something to give and (b) be willing to share it. The leadership concept is then linked to a practical leadership model. This provides leaders a framework for what giving looks like in a work environment. The model factors in giving support, time, opportunity and ideas to produce four classic types of givers: champions, catalysts, coaches and confidants. The model is simple in that it is extremely intuitive, yet it is profound in its ability to discern where one may be strong or lacking at displaying their Generosity Quotient TM.
