What is CQ?
CQ is an individual’s ability to function effectively in culturally diverse settings and is a globally recognised way of assessing and improving effectiveness for culturally diverse situations.
Why is CQ important?
CQ predicts readiness for working and relating effectively with people from different backgrounds – gender, ethnic, generational, organizational. With higher CQ you will more likely gain new opportunities and successfully navigate today’s diverse world.
What are the benefits of participating in this project?
You’ll be provided with research based, innovative solutions to grow you and your team’s CQ with the support of a qualified and experienced management consultant.
It is an opportunity to get in at ground level to lead in diversity, inclusion, innovation and grow a collaborative team.
Those involved in the study will be able to get a year’s worth of consulting and in house testing around CQ, inclusivity and diversity for a heavily reduced priced due to the academic nature of this study.
Each individual will receive a full CQ assessment including: Self Rating and observer ratings for 4 CQ capabilities and 13 CQ sub-dimensions, a development and action plan, where you sit on the cultural values scale in comparison to those around you. These can be used for further in house professional development.
Organisations can get group reports that summarises scores for the overall group participating per organization, compare these to world wide norms, as well as suggestions and feedback.
Hence the limited number of spaces available to participate in this program.
What impact will this have on your company?
Broadly speaking CQ outcomes influence high-quality decision making, trust, cooperation, negotiation effectiveness, creativity, innovation, adjustment and resistance to fatigue/burnout, work performance and leadership effectiveness as well as profitability and cost savings.
Research demonstrates several consistent results for individuals and organisations that improve CQ, including more effective cross-cultural adaptability and decision making, enhanced job performance, improved creativity and innovation, increased profitability and cost savings and enriched situational awareness.
We look forward to seeing you at the lunch and discussing how CQ training and this thesis project can benefit your company.
