Leadership, Adversity Quotient, education


Anyone can be a leader. Everyone has certain talents, skills and expertise that others do not have. A leader is needed to manage the organization to be better, more effective and efficient. Developing the potential to be a leader means changing parts of ourselves, such as improving our weaknesses, changing our character to be better and positive, having a good and broad perspective, and having the ability and expertise to lead. The purpose of this activity is to provide further understanding for staff in Kelurahan X that successful leaders need to have good leadership characteristics. One of them is Adversity Quotient (AQ), namely the ability to survive in the face of adversity and overcome it. The method used is an educational approach by providing offline training and video playback. This educational and socialization activity was held by distributing questionnaires at the beginning of the event and followed by a presentation by the tutor. At the end of the event, the results of the AQ questionnaire will be announced to participants so that it is expected to provide input for the participants about their strengths and weaknesses. As many as 78% of participants are still in the moderately AQ (Adversity Quotient) category and only 22% are in the moderately high AQ category.
