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 you could dramatically increase the probability that your change initiatives will succeed, that your people will buy-into changes, and that your organization will obtain a return-on-investment?
  • 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 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!


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

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