Question and answer
how is practical intelligence important in a workplace
To excel in today's marketplace, organizations need members who can move beyond academic intelligence. "Smarts", creativity, initiative, team leadership, cooperation, persuasiveness, resilience, and optimism are essential for business success. [ These attributes may contribute more to individual and organizational effectiveness than general intelligence (IQ). Certainly, IQ should not be
considered unimportant and disregarded. Indeed, IQ predicts approximately 20% of personal variation in occupational success. However, the abilities that predict the other 80% of success have yet to be established. Researchers are exploring new ideas in search of measures to supplement existing IQ tests as predictors of real-world performance. Two explanations have emerged Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Practical Intelligence (PI). Both of these theories attempt to complement, not replace, the contributions of IQ. ]
