What’s your SIQ?

If you haven’t heard of “Social Intelligence”, you’re behind the ball… and a few good reads or youtube videos about it is a must! On the @StanfordBiz twitter feed, you can scroll through the topics… and you’ll notice how many are related to personal confidence, public speaking, emotional control, reflection, etc. This is STANFORD BUSINESS SCHOOL! There are actually less articles about the economic details of world markets (e.g. globalization of the raw materials market, the transpacific parternship, and the Keystone pipeline) than articles about Social Intelligence topics! Tweets by @StanfordBiz So what’s your SIQ? It’s your social intelligence quotient. It’s like an IQ for social skills. Harvard offers you a small online quiz that you can check out here all about reading the emotions through the eyes. Another business mogul created a social intelligence quiz for you to rate yourself here. Here is another emotional intelligence test, which is closely related to Social Intelligence. Why is this skill important? Well, you must establish a “connection” with someone if you’re ever going to find out how they really feel about a topic or their opinion about a situation. The word describing this “connection” is RAPPORT. If you have the goal of forming a bloc or establishing an alliance, well then you NEED rapport (Here’s an article on Rapport if you’ve never heard of it. Or you can get our book since we teach you how to establish and maintain rapport!). If you want to change someone’s mind or influence their opinion, you’ll never succeed without rapport. And you’ll never know that you’re in rapport if you don’t know anything about social intelligence. We call it MUN-E (pronounced MONEY), because it’s the most valuable skill we can teach....

Are You MUN-E??

Model UN Education is a complete revolution in Social Studies. Schools have been failing to demonstrate the importance of democratic policy… and worse, they have not taught our students how to productively collaborate in order to make changes in our current policy! It’s difficult to imagine how incredibly useful the information in this book really is… This book, MUN-E: How to be Social, Diplomatic, Win Allies, Influence People, and GAVEL!, is the first of its kind. Everything mentioned in the title is taught in very simple language that is familiar to the reader. Model United Nations has provided the format for students to practice these skills. The social skills that are necessary to succeed in any collaboration or negotiation, are the revolutionary insights that are highlighted here. We know that Body Language is important, but has anyone ever given you the step-by-step instructions to use confident body language? (It starts on Page 28 and we go through every part of the body) Have you ever heard of Rapport? It means that you and the person you are talking to are not only communicating with each other, but actually UNDERSTANDING one another. (We describe this process on Page 36) Do you want to talk to the person next to you but have no idea what to say? There is a very simple formula for talking to anyone, anywhere, anytime. (And we give it to you on Page 155) We have written this book because we know that you’re not going to learn this anywhere else. Order it here:...
