In EXPERIENTIAL INTELLIGENCE, personal growth and leadership expert Soren Kaplan reveals how our past experiences impact our present success and future opportunities in ways we often don’t recognize. Experiential Intelligence (or “XQ”) is your unique internal fingerprint that focuses on a combination of mindsets, abilities, and know-how gained from your own life experience that empowers you to achieve your goals.

In her new book RISING TOGETHER, internationally acclaimed author, speaker and leadership expert Sally Helgesen offers a fresh and startling take on the subject. She shows how well-intentioned efforts to root out unconscious bias, the default practice in most organizations, can actually make it harder to foster cultures in which people can build collaborative relationships across gender, racial, ethnic and sexual divides. Instead she shows how practicing inclusive behaviors is the key to creating inclusive work cultures.
