No problem can be solved from the
same level of consciousness
that created it.

~ Albert Einstein


THE CONSCIOUSNESS QUOTIENT (CQ) presents a breakthrough approach to understanding leadership. Drawing on Eastern and Western philosophy, science, and spirituality, C. J. Cloutier develops an intriguing hypothesis of brain, mind, and consciousness that interprets and brings meaning to Einstein's statement. His philosophy of consciousness is designed to raise the bar on traditional leadership practices that have contributed to worldwide problems, such as the unequal distribution of wealth, widespread pollution, and the ruthless exploitation of natural resources.


The transmutational leadership model portrayed in CQ encompasses techniques that bring choiceful awareness to the ethical and moral paradoxes, dilemmas, and conundrums that leaders face in their day-to-day decisions. The Consciousness Quotient demonstrates unequivocally that elevating individual and collective consciousness will help create a saner, economically balanced, more just society and safeguard the future for Planet Earth and for our children.
