Whenever you select an assessment, it’s important to consider two things—what does it measure, and how was it validated?

Cultural Values Profile
The Cultural Values Profile is a research-based tool that allows individuals, teams, and organizations to compare their individual orientations on ten cultural value dimensions. Participants can use the profile results to consider potential points of unconscious bias and to map team differences that can represent challenges or synergistic opportunities. In addition, organizations can use it to more concretely measure what kind of value diversity exists across a team or the organization as a whole.
Our CQ Assessments measure an individual’s capability for working and relating across cultures. Participants complete the assessment online and receive a personalized feedback report that compares their CQ with the worldwide norms, helps them interpret the feedback, and guides them through the process of creating a personal CQ Development Plan. Organizations receive group reports that summarize the scores for an overall group of participants, compare these scores with the worldwide norms, and offer suggestions for how to use the feedback.
