What is the New IQ?

From the White House, to the board room, to the privacy of our own bedrooms, and virtually everywhere in between, the missing key to solving today's biggest issues is a restoration of integrity. To succeed, integrity must be transformed from a fuzzy and impersonal philosophical concept to a practical, action-oriented and deeply rewarding way of life.

That transformation begins with understanding that integrity includes self-integrity, relationship integrity and societal integrity. And with understanding that these aspects of 3D Integrity reflect the three innate drives we humans have that are our real recipe for life fulfillment: authenticity (being who we truly are), connection (bonding with others) and impact (positively influencing the world around us).

Practical integrity is a very specific set of seven key life skills. These are not merely the core ingredients for creating sustainable solutions to our current challenges in society, the economy, politics, and business, but for life fulfillment, great relationships, career success, and leadership. This is what makes Integrity Intelligence (The New IQ) arguably the most important form of intelligence we need in today's world. The form of truly useful intelligence that millions of people are searching for is the intelligence it takes to reunite authenticity, love, success, prosperity, and society, without sacrificing personal integrity or social responsibility.

What makes The New IQ both revolutionary and acclaimed is that it is the world's first complete road-tested guide to integrity-centered living, working, loving, and serving!

Dealing with today's vast array of major challenges calls upon us, as individuals and as a society, to take a fresh look at what creates life fulfillment. It calls upon us as citizens to develop a new vision of what to look for -- and require from -- our leaders in government, business, advocacy groups, community organizations and the media.

Hailed as a "once-in-a-generation book," The New IQ provides the first comprehensive step-by-step road map for restoring the vanishing virtue of integrity... for the sake of our loved ones, our communities, our businesses, our society, and our own personal wellbeing. Going far beyond being a typical self-help book, this critically acclaimed, six-award-winning action plan provides a socially responsible road map for attaining personal, relationship, and career fulfillment during difficult times without sacrificing ethics and integrity. It marks the dawn of truly Integrated Human Potential™.

Here, finally, is your guide to "Self Development That Serves Us All™." The New IQ book & Implementation Guide lays out:

  • The hidden factors that have REALLY been holding you back from happiness, authenticity, love, leadership, and prosperity.
  • The secrets "Natural Developers" use to create sustained happiness & life fulfillment that you too can use to get the same results.
  • A startlingly efficient way to upgrade your life fulfillment, love, abundance, job satisfaction, business profitability, social responsibility, leadership and integrity... all at the same time.

The New IQ provides the antidote to the greed, entitlement and narcissism causing the economic and social problems we suffer from today. Its timeless wisdom has been embraced across the political and faith spectrums.

Sound like more than one book can provide? A whopping six book awards in an unheard-of diversity of categories and scores of book endorsements by experts verify that this is the real thing.

Are YOU ready for a fresh look at life fulfillment and social responsibility that can protect you from continuing to be psychologically crushed by our current crises? You are moments away from discovering what may well be the most important book you will read this decade.


"I left a copy of The New IQ in the waiting area where I work and the book disappeared -- all of the other books in the waiting area were still there. So, I put out another copy of your book there. It, too, disappeared. The third copy disappeared as well. The next time, I put a note on it indicating that the book is available online and through bookstores, and all four copies were returned within a few days! I would take this as a sign that there is hunger for this information/experience. I ordered a number of copies of The New IQ workbook to put in the waiting room as well!" ~ Constance Wells, Senior Vice President, Walt Disney


The Core Message of the New IQ

We All Know Lack of Integrity Is Rampant Today in All Parts of the World: Our massive integrity problems have been caused by massively distorted ideas about what creates fulfillment. The most powerful path for restoring integrity thus starts with understanding what creates true and lasting fulfillment.

  • You Were Born with Three Core Drives: 1) Authenticity is your innate drive to be who you truly are. 2) Connection is your innate drive to bond with others. 3) Impact is your innate drive to influence the world around you.
  • Do You Really Want to Experience Fulfillment? If so, it's time to learn how to live in integrity with all three of your core drives, not just one or two of them.
  • Do You Really Value Integrity? True authenticity requires self-integrity. Nourishing, productive and durable connection requires relationship integrity. Positive impact requires societal integrity: integrity with the collectives of which you are a part, from your own family to the earth itself. Those who truly value integrity become good at making personal choices, and co-creating solutions with others, that simultaneously serve “we,” “me” and “us all.” This is 3D Integrity: the only sustainable path to a fulfilling future for us as individuals, for our relationships, for our society, for humanity as a whole, and for our planet.
  • Is There a Reliable Path to Integrity-Centered Fulfillment? A clinical and organizational psychologist since the 1980s, Dr. David Gruder's psychotherapy and leadership mentoring clients taught him an incredibly important secret: Those who naturally attain high levels of integrity-centered fulfillment intuitively develop seven very specific life skills in place of the automated survival habits they developed as children and carried into adulthood. Based on having learned how to successfully teach these "WisePassions™" to thousands of others in keynotes & training programs for a wide range of helping professionals, businesses and leaders, The New IQ book and workbook show YOU how to create integrity-centered life fulfillment while also inspiring the same in your chosen spheres of influence.

The New IQ: How Integrity Intelligence Serves You, Your Relationships and Our World reveals the profoundly practical ways Natural Developers create happiness & life fulfillment without sacrificing personal integrity or social responsibility. The New IQ Integrity Makeover Workbook shows you step-by-step how to do this yourself. (Energy Psychology Anywhere is a companion to the workbook that provides you with step-by-step-by-step instructions in a particularly powerful set of cutting-edge self-development tools to help you rapidly blow through blocks that may be sabotaging your success.)

Please understand: this material is NOT another self-improvement method. It is a complete road map for integrity-centered living, loving, working and serving. It is designed to help you focus your personal, relationship or leadership development like nothing else you have seen. It was created to enable you to finally get the most out of ANY self-improvement methods you use or professional facilitation you get! This resource is not for using once and put away -- it is for helping you stay on track... FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. It is truly Strategic Self-Development™.

-Lee Pulos, Ph.D., author of The Power of Visualization and The Biology of Empowerment

-Paula Newby-Fraser, 8-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion, and "Greatest All-Around Female Athlete in the World" by ABC’s Wide World of Sports

"Leaders need an integrity check-up and Dr. David Gruder is just the man to do it.

Dr. Gruder’s simple yet powerful integrity model provides a much-needed shot in the arm."
-Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

"The New IQ deals out world peace as a state of mind.

Those who carry this book, regard Integrity as their priority in parenting, relationship, leadership, career and religious thought. Those who pass on reading The New IQ put integrity lower on their agenda and have lower IQ’s as a result."

-Robert W. Fuller, Ph.D., co-founder of The Hunger Project, former president of Oberlin College.

"The New IQ is right on target!

-Aileen Kwa, co-author of Behind the Scenes at the WTO (World Trade Organization): The Real World of International Trade Negotiations

-Belleruth Naparstek, author of Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma & How They Heal; and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series

"You can read 10 self-help books or you can read The New IQ, which is much more than a self-help book. This compassionate guidebook is full of practical wisdom for becoming complete human beings."
-Larry Stoler, MSSA, Ph.D., psychologist, social worker and president of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology

"This splendid book on heart-smart technology, also called emotional intelligence, nurtures the analytical mind and emotional body, the individual and the collective."
-Bryan Flournoy, "Making It All Click" Visionary Series show host
