About the CQ Assessment

Many companies list teamwork and collaboration as among their core values.  When asked, however, leaders and their teams are rarely aligned around the specific skills, behaviors and environmental factors that contribute to effective collaboration in the workplace.  As a result, collaboration suffers and businesses fail to achieve desired levels of worker engagement and productivity.  In order for workers at all levels to collaborate effectively, the following key factors must be attended to and nurtured:


  1. Time Pressure: People must have sufficient time to focus on their individual work and to help each other to succeed.

  2. Trust: People must feel sufficient levels of trust toward and from colleagues. It's worth noting that effective collaboration is also a powerful input to building trust within teams.

  3. Communication: People must be capable of communicating openly and listening without becoming overly reactive.

  4. Problem-Solving: People must have the skills to diagnose problems and build support for solving them collaboratively.

  5. Meetings: People must be willing and able to conduct effective and productive meetings in a way that meets the needs of all meeting participants.

  6. Power & Authority: Leaders must remain conscious of, and limited in, their use of power and authority to influence others.

  7. Decision-Making: People must feel appropriately involved in the business-related decisions that affect them.

  8. Accountability: People must know how to hold others accountable and, in turn, must be willing to be held accountable.

  9. Priorities: People must feel empowered to name and address competing priorities.

  10. Fairness: People must feel as though they are being treated equitably by their leaders, co-workers and the policies of their organization.

Our CQ Assessment is designed to assess the current climate in your workplace. Our aim is to help leaders and teams to identify and prioritize the areas where training and development investments are likely to have the greatest impact. The growing aggregate response data serves to expand our understanding of the areas where support is generally most needed in the workplace, and to identify the trends that exist among companies of varying size and operating within various business sectors.
