Can we put the question of Existential Intelligence for Strategic Leadership?, D.Bourantas
The roots of the word existential are existence and exist. To exist means to live and so, to think about your existence means to think about your life and perhaps Life itself. In those moments when we are thinking about the meaning of our individual lives or the greater purpose and mission of our group, we are engaged in existential thinking. In this paper, we attempt to define and explain the existential intelligence. The initial motivation has been given from the original work of Howard Gardner on Multiple Intelligences, in which he firstly introduced the term. Additionally, the basic ideas of the philosophical movement of existentialism offered the foundations for the development of our thinking. The importance of existential thinking and its possible implications for leadership are also discussed.
