“In a world where crossing boundaries is routine, CQ becomes a vitally important aptitude and skill.”
– Harvard Business Review
Two CQ Assessment Options
CQ Multi-Rater Assessment
Multi-Rater Assessments provide the most accurate assessment and feedback on CQ because they combine self-assessment with observer-feedback. Participants and their observers complete online surveys and participants receive a 20-page personalized feedback report. Reports provide detailed feedback on the four CQ capabilities, the sub-dimensions of each CQ capability, a comparison of scores with the CQ worldwide norms, individual cultural value orientations, global potential scores, reflection questions and a personalized action plan.
Self-Assessments provide feedback on how individuals view their own CQ capabilities. Participants complete online surveys and receive a feedback report on their CQ capabilities.
Why choose the CQ Assessments by the Cultural Intelligence Center?
Defining Characteristics of the CQ Assessments
- Measuring intercultural performance and skills rather than personal preferences and orientations.
- Being peer reviewed by academics around the world and subsequently published in more than 100 academic A-level journals. Whereas, the items for most cultural inventories are not shared with external academics, making the reliability and validity uncertain.
- Offering a validated, multi-rater, 360 version of the assessment as well as a self-assessment.
- Reporting outcomes to individuals based upon their CQ assessment results (e.g. We can accurately predict how well an individual will negotiate cross-culturally or how well one will function on a multicultural, virtual team.)
- Providing company-specific norms and subsequent analysis, strategies, and interventions based upon what the data reveals.
