These include the complete courses offered as a part of our standard certification and train-the-trainer programs with the added value of customized content and facilitation that is oriented to senior-level HR leaders and completed with a group of professional peers.

  • 3 CQ MasterMind Sessions: Building a CQ Organization, Scaling & Framing, and Designing the CQ Roadmap.

These bi-monthly sessions combine the expertise from our research combined with the experienced insights of other cohort members to help you solve your internal challenges. Each participant will have a chance to bring a real-life issue to the group and gain personalized direction.

  • Personalized Coaching: Each month, one-on-one coaching and/or small group sessions are available for additional consulting, giving you direct access to our team when you need it.
  • Individualized Feedback for your CQ Roadmap: The Academy culminates with you completing a CQ Organizational Roadmap to ensure this is more than just a learning experience and instead, translates into organizational results. Feedback will be provided by our team and other cohort participants.

With you at the center of the design, this experience will support you in creating a sustainable and scalable model for change in your organization.
