ADVERSITY QUOTIENT IN PREDICTING JOB PERFORMANCE VIEWED THROUGH THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE FIVE FACTOR MODEL For several decades industrial-organizational (I/O) psychologists have been trying to find answers to the use of personality measurement in organizational contexts. Clearly, such personnel assessment methods have their practical value.
Paul Stoltz in 1997, the Adversity Quotient (AQ). Stoltz defines Adversity Quotient as “the capacity of the person to deal with the adversities of his life, and as such is the science of human resilience” 7. This is a new concept that tells how well one withstands an adversity and his ability to triumph over it.
In 1997, Paul Stoltz unleashed a revolution with his groundbreaking book Adversity Quotient: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities, introducing the concept of the Adversity Quotient into public consciousness. Now, in Adversity Quotient @ Work, Stoltz applies the principles of his brilliant theory to the uniquely challenging environment of the workplace. AQ is a measure of one's ability to handle adversity. Those who can't become easily overwhelmed and emotional, then pull back and stop trying; those who can handle adversity become the leaders of today and tomorrow. Adversity Quotient @ Work clearly demonstrates how workers and managers can use this concept of the AQ to their own advantage, and to the benefit of their clients and customers. Adversity Quotient @ Work teaches listeners how to hire and retain highly motivated and talented workers, develop employees to their full potential, and create a leadership culture that encourages all to put forth their best efforts and maximize their performance capabilities. Based on real research performed with thousands of managers and members of the workforce on the front lines of hundreds of businesses, it will quickly become any corporation's indispensable handbook for success.

An overview on attitudes toward adversity. Everyone gets some, some get more than others. Already into disc 4, I like the way the author categorizes our response to adversity on a continuum, but that's not exactly how life is. We don't usually respond in a nice pattern. My friend pointed that out to me today, and I agreed. We are more likely to slide up and down and then back up the 'continuum', kind of like we do as we process loss. I am probably not going to complete this book. It has become te...more
It is a little bit boring at the beginning, but from page to page, it makes me more interested in the inspiring lessons. AQ can be simply understood as resilience ability, how to confront to conflicts and changes in a VUCA world. And this book will help you with some valid advice and technique. However, you will be the person making the call and take full accountability for your life. Read - Understand and Practice will make U stronger and more successful in future. A good book to read, to make a...more

Certainly, it is a self help book. I pursue another point of view about psychological self help. It gives me what I expect. The book suggests that the obstacles are the triggers for success. The matter is how we see that obstacles, how we think and react about it! Interesting book. It really helps to overcome our reactive habits and start to think, say, and act more details and diligent. You may see yourself as a different person if you try the advises from the book. Read and try it!
