Organizational effectiveness is increasingly dependent on people who can be effective and respectful in a variety of cultural situations. For a long time, this aspect of effectiveness was difficult to measure. Now, using the only evidence-based assessment of cultural intelligence (CQ) available, you can assess and develop CQ for those in your organization. We offer the following online assessments and personalized feedback reports for public, private, and non-profit organizations.
CQ Assessments: Professional
The professional versions of the CQ assessment include an inventory of the four CQ capabilities and an individual’s personal orientation on seven cultural values. There are both self-report and multi-rater (360°) versions of the survey.
The multi-rater assessments can be set up so that participants select 5-7 observers on their own to complete the survey on their behalf, or it may be used with an in-tact team (where team members provide feedback on one another’s CQ). Participants complete online surveys and receive personalized feedback reports. (Self, Multi-Rater, and Team Versions Available)
We need leaders with CQ who can make connections with people who are not like them.

Each individual receives a personalized feedback report, which includes scores for the four CQ capabilities and sub-dimensions, comparisons with the CQ worldwide norms, personal preferences for seven individual cultural value orientations (e.g. individualism vs. collectivism, low vs. high context, etc.), and a personalized development plan for enhancing CQ. The multi-rater versions also include observer feedback.
Pre and Post Assessments
Programs can be set up for a one-time, stand-alone assessment or can include multiple assessments – such as before and after training sessions or other developmental experiences. Using the assessments before and after a program provides you with insights on the effectiveness of the program and the areas where the participants improved most.
Facilitators and organizations can receive CQ Group Reports with aggregated results for a group of participants. Group reports include demographic characteristics of the participants, comparison of participant scores with the CQ worldwide norms, distribution of participant scores (low-moderate-high), and interpretative observations and implications. CQ Group Reports for specialized programs also include information on the distribution of individual cultural value orientations, comparisons between sub-groups of participants, comparisons between self and observer ratings, and/or comparisons between T1 and T2 scores.
