Cultural Intelligence Self-Assessments

Our CQ Assessments measure an individual’s capabilities to work and relate effectively with people from different nationalities, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds

The Cultural Intelligence Assessment evaluates effectiveness in diverse situations by measuring capabilities in four distinct areas: CQ Drive, CQ Knowledge, CQ Strategy, and CQ Action.

In other words, CQ Assessments measures one’s

  • motivation to interact with people who are different from them
  • knowledge about similarities and differences across cultures
  • ability to strategize before an interaction with someone who is different from them
  • ability to adapt and flex when interactions don’t go according to plan
Cultural Intelligence is also malleable. This means it can be enhanced and improved through a variety of learning methods. Start with an assessment to evaluate levels of CQ today. Then, follow the assessment with an e-Learning course, a certification program, a workshop, or consult with us about what type of learning and development pathway is best for you.
All of our CQ Assessments are built upon extensive, peer-reviewed, research. To learn more about the research basis of our assessments, click here.
