NESCol collaborates with Motivational Intelligence specialist to pioneer new qualification

May 17, 2022

North East Scotland College and Scottish specialist the Power Within Training have launched a groundbreaking new course for Scottish businesses.

The SQA-approved Executive Diploma in Leading With Motivational Intelligence is the first of its kind and will be delivered using the College’s well-established distance learning model.

Motivational Intelligence (MQ) is known as the third level of intelligence and the science behind it has won a Nobel Prize.

Glasgow-based family business The Power Within Training is the only certified provider of Motivational Intelligence training outside North America. The company leads transformative MQ development programmes designed to help people adapt more quickly to their environment, handle adversity more effectively, take productive action and embrace change at an accelerated rate.

Through the collaboration with NESCol the unique Executive Diploma framework is now available fully-funded to Scottish business owners, sole traders and senior leaders and managers in companies and organisations based in Scotland.

Iain Cocker, NESCOL’s Business Development Manager, said: “North East Scotland College has a track record of innovation and this collaboration demonstrates that progressive approach. Our support for the business community of the North East continues to evolve and we recognise the value of Motivational Intelligence as part of our comprehensive training offer.

“We are delighted to be working with specialists in the field and to be delivering a programme that will bring tremendous benefits to businesses and organisations across the region.”

James Fleming, co-founder and CEO of The Power Within Training, said: “This is a huge step for the delivery of this innovative programme and we’re delighted to partner with North East Scotland College to give even more people the opportunity to learn these vital skills and help build success in business, leadership and in life.

“Motivational Intelligence is proven to be the critical factor in business success, even more-so than IQ and EQ. This programme is tailored to provide exactly what business leaders need to get ahead and thrive and we look forward to welcoming today’s leaders and emerging leaders to the MQ revolution.”

The Executive Diploma in Leading With Motivational Intelligence is available for employers to book through the Flexible Workforce Development fund. Contact to find out more.
