Communication Quotient™ (CQ) is the bridge between EQ and IQ. It exists in the space between your intelligence and your emotions and helps you understand how to express your ‘communication intelligence’.
We are taught that in order to succeed, we need to be smart and intelligent. We are also told to feel and to be sensitive. CQ is mastering how to communicate your thoughts, desires and plans clearly at the right time to people around you.
Engaging with CQ allows you to identify which type of communicator you are and gives you specific guidance for how to improve your communication skills and build on your overall communication intelligence, no matter where you are on the CQ scale. You’ll also start to identify traits and behaviours in others, allowing you to adapt your own style to make the most out of each and every interaction. This means that when you speak up, you’re doing it with conviction.
