CQ Assessments & E-Learning

Through my partnership with the CQ center I am able to offer research-based CQ Assessments designed to measure effectiveness in diverse situations and to promote a deeper understanding of our own approaches to life and work and how those compare to others. I am also able to offer a number of interactive, engaging and detailed online courses.

CQ Pro Assessment

This tool is designed to assess the four factors and 13 sub dimensions of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) as well as individual cultural value orientations. Personalised feedback reports compare CQ scores with the worldwide norms, provide personal preferences on each of the 10 cultural values and include a personalised development plan.

The CQ Assessment measures an individual’s capability for working and relating across cultures by measuring skills in four distinct areas:

  1. CQ Drive: Level of interest, persistence, and confidence during multicultural interactions.
  2. CQ Knowledge: Understanding about how cultures are similar and different.
  3. CQ Strategy: Awareness and ability to plan for multicultural interactions.
  4. CQ Action: Ability to adapt when relating and working in multicultural contexts.

In addition, the CQ Pro Assessment provides individuals with a mapping of their preferences on 10 cultural values.

  1. Individualism vs. Collectivism
  2. Low vs. High Power Distance
  3. Low vs. High Uncertainty Avoidance
  4. Cooperative vs. Competitive
  5. Short Term vs. Long Term
  6. Direct vs. Indirect
  7. Being vs. Doing
  8. Universalism vs. Particularism
  9. Non-Expressive vs. Expressive
  10. Linear vs. Non-Linear
