CQ is a Skill. You can diagnose and
develop CQ. Learn how!

Effectively managing change is critical to career success, not to mention the health of your entire organization.

As a leader, you may have asked yourself:

  • What if there was a way to measure a person’s ability to effect change?

  • What if you could teach yourself, your team members or your clients to become better change agents?

  • What if you could stop struggling with the rotating “Program of the Month”, and see the changes your organization needs to make to survive and thrive actually take root?

Now you have an opportunity for you to become a subject matter expert in a powerful new system that will enable you to boost your own Change Intelligence as well as the CQ of those you lead, coach, and support!

If you are looking for "a new way" to get results, CQ is the tool for you!

What is the CQ/Change Intelligence Certification Process?

CQ Certification equips participants with strategies and tools that go beyond information to insight; that are immediately accessible, applicable, and actionable on the job; and that can be used with the change agents you coach, teams you facilitate, and organizations you lead.

"Having gone through a sizable merger and facing system-wide change, the CQ process helps me as a CEO and my senior management team identify issues on how to lead our organization"
