Maintaining Inner & Outer Peace In Any Situation


When employees are invited to bring their soul to work, they become more adaptable, experience greater well-being, and focus on the bigger picture.

Adapting To An Ever Changing World

Do you wish for a more vibrant, collaborative team environment?

Do you often wonder if there is a way to develop out of the box thinking?

Are you focused on the future, and want your team to join you in your purpose driven vision with adaptive confidence?

Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) is defined as the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation. 

Many people are familiar with IQ (Intelligence Quotient), a person’s rational, problem-solving intelligence and EQ (Emotional Intelligence),  focused on self-awareness through emotions. SQ connects a person to their higher intelligence, allowing them to find meaning in a purpose greater than themselves. Like IQ & EQ, it can be developed with time.

How Spiritual Intelligence Plays A Role In Your Organization


SQ can amplify your employee’s Emotional Quotient (EQ) and Intelligence Quotient (IQ). Leaders and employees become better system thinkers and focus on the big picture, an incredible asset to any organization, especially during these uncertain times.

Kathy believes that by inviting people to bring their soul to work, you maximize the creativity and innovation of your most valuable resource, your people. SQ provides a unique and distinctive layer to any coaching or organizational development program.

Does SQ really matter to the bottom line?

Yes, research shows that Spiritually Intelligent leaders and organizations see the following benefits:


Loyalty to a higher “cause” so people substantially outperform their peers


Increased motivation and better-quality work


Outperform the competition


Employees are not expendable resources


Employees have increased health and psychological well-being


Reduced absenteeism and turnover


Greater trust, safety, tolerance for risk-taking and mistakes


Team learning, creativity and Innovation


Comfort in chaos feeling called to work with others for higher purpose and higher power

What Others Are Saying About Kathy

Kathy is a gentle and encouraging mentor. Her authentic approach creates a comfortable environment to explore and be curious about spiritual intelligence in life and leadership. Through coaching, Kathy was able to open my mind and heart to new personal insight.

I took the SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence Assessment in early 2020 as the COVID pandemic was emerging around the world and in my own province. It was a worthwhile exercise and an opportunity for self-reflection in a crazy world. I shared the results with two people close to me to get their feedback and both indicated that the general assessment seemed to fit who they know as Joy. However both also had comments about a handful of results being off base compared to how they see me show up in life. Overall I think the assessment is a solid tool to give you a window into yourself and Kathy’s one-on-one guidance was valuable. I would recommend the SQ21 in conjunction with Kathy’s expertise as a tool to increase one’s personal awareness and as a framework to guide additional growth in the area of spiritual intelligence.

“Taking the Spiritual Intelligence Assessment through Kathy MacFarlane helped me to remember who I am and why I do things the way that I do. Most of all it was an invitation to bring more of my Spiritual Intelligence wisdom and compassion to my workplace during these difficult times as we navigate through the pandemic that is all around us. I will lead “whole” heartedly and be kind and intimate with the truth that matters.”
