Applying Financial Quotient (FQ) in Decision Making Processes

Course Description

Learn to make the best financial decisions with ASK Training’s new course, “Applying Financial Quotient (FQ) in Decision Making Processes”! 

We often come across people talking about the importance of IQ and EQ, but how often have you encountered someone who talks about FQ? Financial Quotient (FQ) is the ability to obtain and manage one’s wealth by understanding how money works.

In our everyday lives, we are forced to make crucial financial decisions which have the power to impact the performance of our company or personal lives significantly. Having high FQ is essential in making an adequate choice. Despite so, many lack sufficient financial knowledge to make the best financial decisions. 

Within this 2-day workshop, participants will be taught key financial concepts through real-life case studies, and learn to apply what they have learnt into their workplace and their daily lives. Participants will also be taught how to use useful tools such as the Cost-Benefit Analysis, to aid them in making better financial decisions in addition to the concepts taught.

Let’s develop our financial intelligence and benefit both personally and professionally!
