Intrapersonal competences form the foundation of one’s development and they are fundamental qualities of leadership competences. Four types of intelligence are highlighted in the literature of positive psychology: problem solving ability (IQ), emotion management (EQ), resilience in adversity (AQ) and meaning of life (SQ). It is argued that these competences are important for a service leader. Through this lecture, it is expected that students will understand the basic concepts and the importance of different intrapersonal competences (IQ, EQ, AQ and SQ). We also discuss the relationship between these intrapersonal competences and effective service leadership. Finally, ways to promote different intrapersonal competences are depicted.
