RQ—The X factor of success

Malaysia is doing great in the Rio Olympics. We have won silver for synchronized diving, and also made the semifinals of badminton doubles. Besides having the skills, I believe strong mental strength is also required of all Olympians.

I love sports, and I often have friendly competitions with my friends, such as a badminton game. I have realized that calmness goes a long way in helping one win competitions.

This ability to stay level-headed is also important in business.

What do I mean?

I realized that most successful people have a common trait—the ability to stay calm and collected despite crises and troubles. They maintain rational under pressure, and keep healthy relationships with people around them. Most importantly, they are not easily derailed from their goals in the midst of distractions.

We call this ability the Resilience Quotient, RQ. This term is first coined by German Psychologist Denis Mourlane. Not only have experts all across Europe recognized the importance of RQ, they have even developed trainings and programmes to help people strengthen their RQ.
I came across some great material on this topic, and would like to share it with you:

The characteristics of people with high RQ

◎ They are filled with positivity and confidence
◎ They can make decisions and assessments objectively
◎ They understand themselves, and are well rounded
◎ They have inner peace
◎ They are able to set clear goals and work towards them
◎ They are empathatic
◎ They have a sense of humour, and are able to accept negativity as part and parcel of life

People with these traits are not only key to a project’s success, they can also help others stay positive under pressure, and keep their own performance up to standard.

This is much like an athlete. Even if one has great skills, if they are not able to withstand the pressure of an event such as Olympics, they would be absolutely crushed. As leaders, we need to have the RQ to stay calm even under pressure.

Afterall, the only goal is success. But even if we fail, it is important to stay graceful, and maintain a good reputation in the eyes of our client, our employees and our competitors. Take the lessons from your failure, and work to improve.

The Resilience Quotient has proven useful to me throughout my years in the business world. I believe it is equally important regardless of your field and industry.

Stay positive, stay resilient.

成功人士都拥有”RQ”精神!

今年的里约奥运会大马成绩斐然,双人跳水获得一银,羽球双混大马健儿挺进半决赛!而运动员除了拥有出色的技巧之外,我相信强大的心理素质绝对能让运动员获得出色的成绩。

我本身十分热爱运动,也常会在闲暇时间与朋友举办一些运动友谊赛,例如羽球比赛等,我发现即使比赛再激烈,只要你能保持平静,你越能赢得比赛。

内心平静除了能表现在运动比赛上,其实也非常适用于商业。

怎么说呢?

因为我发现,身边许多有成就的人士显然具有一种不同于他人的特质:内心平静。

他们能克服生命中的困境,不受人际问题影响,即使处于高压环境也不会表现失常。

心理韧性,让人有明确的努力目标,有行动的贯彻力与自制力,能快速降低生活遭遇的负面性,并因此获得个人成就与身心健康。

这样的心态,我们成为“RQ”(Resilience Quotient)意指”韧性心理”,RQ心态是德国心理学家也是德国运动员咨询师丹尼斯.穆蓝纳(Denis Mourlane)所提出,RQ不仅让德国运动员在各个运动项目中所向披靡给,欧美许多企业更是邀请心理咨询师前来为员工进行韧性心理培训,希望能激发员工强大的心理素质。

而我前几天在一份商业杂志上看到关于“RQ”的剖析后,觉得非得与各位读者分享:

高“RQ”者的特征

◎焕发着自信、乐观的精神。
◎具备良好的理解力与判断力,能透彻分析情况。
◎整体表现很平衡,很了解自己。
◎拥有内在的平静。
◎会设定清楚的目标,并以坚持不懈及高度自律,持续朝目标迈进。
◎怀有同理心,愿意放下既定的想法,倾听他人的心声。
◎有幽默感,能把负面事物当成生活的一部分。

而拥有这样的卓越心理素质的人,不只关乎事情的成败,它甚至还可以让个体在艰困的、承受高度压力的情况下,继续相信自己与自己的能力,保持从容、镇定的态度。

就像运动员,纵使技巧与体能再棒,若没有强大的抗压心态,在关键时刻总会显得缺乏自信。而作为领导人以一样,在面对强大竞争者时,我们要沉着,不能老是想着对方的长处有多强自己的团队的弱势之处,绝对不要灭自己之气,涨他人威风 !

纵使面对强大的竞争对手,我们一定要发挥最好的状态来迎战,随时随地准备好自己面对挑战!成功是我们的目标,若失败了,也要记得表现了最好的自己就已经给对手或客户留下深刻的印象,也让团队吸取了宝贵的经验,在有机会的话,绝对要吸取教训不再重犯!

在我多年的经商经验中,支持我带领团队跨越无数障碍的就是一股不服输的韧性以及越挫越勇的信念。

而韧性心理不仅适用于运动与商业,在就业、教育以及人生方面都有莫大的帮助,与各位共勉之!
