What is a Quadrant?
A quadrant is an ancient navigational instrument used by sailors since the 1400’s (and on land long before that). The quadrant received its name because it is one-fourth of a full circle. Quad in Latin means “four.”
Sailors learned that the North Star could also help with navigation. They would take a reading with the quadrant and note the height of The North Star above the horizon. They knew that this height changed depending on a person’s latitude, (the distance above or below the equator).
If you knew what the height of The North Star was at a particular port city you wanted to reach, it would help you navigate your way there.
For me as a sailor, I like it that we have GPS now. But as a mentor I love the symbolism of the quadrant for it captures what I am passionate about doing with leaders.
- Understand your current location. Where are you at? What are you experiencing right now?
- What is your North Star? (I actually like The Southern Cross) What is guiding you?
- As a leader, what ‘port’ do you want to reach?
- Let’s set course for that goal and continue to measure as we go to ensure we are on course.
