What does the name Steve Harvey bring to mind? That could depend on the first encounter. Some people might go as far back as his days doing Amateur Night at the Apollo. Others might know him from his comedy circuit. No matter how he brings it, Harvey’s worked his way up to becoming a powerhouse.

That’s no small task. In every career pursuit or dream track you’ll find lots of high achievers. These are people who demonstrate passion in their work. They operate with an engaged sense of purpose. But the ones who become a powerhouse figure in their fields are those who possess PQ or personality quotient.

Everybody knows what IQ can do for you. It’s a measure of your intellectual edge. In the case of PQ, it’s about connecting people with the essence of your personality and the warmth of your authority. So while it’s good to be smart, it pays to be personably smart. This way people can connect with your heart.

That’s the whole idea behind shifting gears or turning things around on the job or in business. There’re lots more people in the pot than there’re those ready to land a spot. So to separate from the pack you have to have had made a name for yourself or to offer more than what people can get off the shelf.

It seems even when Harvey is in downtime he’s still making things happen. He might not be on the clock but he’s still on his game with his work in philanthropy. It’s about planting seeds, meeting needs and taking heed to the real power of his life’s calling. After a while he keeps doing what he’s doing with style.
