is CQ?

CQ = IQ + EQ

CQ: Communication QuotientTM is an ongoing method of connecting our Intelligence and Emotional Quotients for self development at work and in life.

For communication to be effective, powerful and sustainable, both our intellectual and emotional selves need to focus on understanding and expressing a piece of information, a problem, a desire. [ref]

This is achieved by suspending judgement, developing empathy and self awareness.

Without the ability to communicate effectively in the workplace, no team can negotiate, critically think, problem solve, or adapt to an ever changing world. [ref]

A Growing Communication And Culture Gap

The digital-first world or tomorrow is an environment in which highly specialized people will meet. People with complementary expertise, yes… but with disconnected ideas, language, jargon, motives and fears. This creates a need for teams to up-skill or re-skill into better communicators and critical thinkers to connect the dots.

Becoming The Bridge

CQ Originals is training you and your team to listen better, think sharper, be more agile, problem solve faster and communicate with more empathy. By improving soft skills you and/or your organization is unlocking a new level of efficiency, profitability, relevance and sustainability.

The Active Listening Course

Active Listening is the heart of Critical Thinking, Negotiation, Leadership, Communication Intelligence, Problem Solving.

Why do you need Active Listening?

Well to start,
not listening
is rude…

Active listening is when you listen with an intentional effort to understand the point of view of others, their motivations, thoughts and expectations while suspending any judgment.

“Good listeners are like trampolines. They are someone you can bounce ideas off of — and rather than absorbing your ideas and energy, they amplify, energize, and clarify your thinking.”
