Do you find it difficult to connect and convey your thoughts to others? Do you struggle to support others to navigate their own uncertainties? When you are with your team or leading a team, how do you support conversations, creative ideas, connections and co-creation of ways to collaborate? As you lead, the challenge is being aware of your own thoughts and emotions while supporting others and also being aware of the dynamic that takes place with interactions happen.
Leadership assessments with emotional Intelligence EQ
In my work, I use several assessments for Emotional intelligence that support your leadership. I am certified in Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment (SEI®) which has several forms. Here is a brief idea of the assessment I can run with you:

Leadership Assessments with Cultural Intelligence CQ
Cultural intelligence (CQ) is the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations. It goes beyond existing notions of cultural sensitivity and awareness to highlight a theoretically-based set of capabilities needed to successfully and respectfully accomplish your objectives in culturally diverse settings. Research on cultural intelligence, which to-date spans 98 countries and over 55,000 individuals, demonstrates those with cultural intelligence have skills in four capabilities.
Ideally, the assessment is used in many ways, here are some:
- Recruitment, Hiring, and Promotion—cultural intelligence can be assessed in the midst of hiring and used as a metric of performance appraisals.
- Performance Reviews—the CQ Assessments are being used in some contexts as part of the annual review process.
- Team Development—contexts where training and assessment are often used include virtual teams, faculty development programs, IT managers, continued education for nurses, social workers, counselors, etc.
- Diversity and Inclusion Programs—CQ offers a fresh approach to diversity and inclusion (D&I) and provides a data-driven approach to help turn the focus of D&I on potential rather than upon compliance or punitive efforts.
- Global Relocation—organizations use assessments, training, and coaching to prepare and support individuals who are being given an international assignment.
- New Initiatives—organizations use CQ Assessment and training to prepare for and enhance the potential of new initiatives.
- Program Assessment—the CQ Assessments provide a valid way of assessing the effectiveness of various programs (e.g. Study Abroad programs, university departments, high schools, and various organizational training programs) for improving intercultural capabilities.
The leadership assessments measure a leaders' capability for working and relating across cultures. Participants complete the assessment online and receive a personalized feedback report that compares their CQ with the worldwide norms, helps them interpret the feedback, and guides them through the process of creating a personal CQ Development Plan. Organizations receive group reports that summarize the scores for an overall group of participants, compare these scores with the worldwide norms, and offer suggestions for how to use the feedback. The leadership assessments are either self or multi raters and measure 4 Intercultural capabilities: CQ Drive (e.g. intrinsic interest), CQ Knowledge (e.g. understanding or leadership norms), CQ Strategy (e.g. perspective taking), CQ Action (e.g. nonverbal adaptability). ideally suited for multicultural Teams, Inclusion Initiatives, and Global Leadership assessments.
Team Culture and Performance Assessment
I am also certified in administering Team Diagnostic Survey (TDS) to assess team culture and performance. If you are finding your own leadership development is fully rounded but still struggle with your team performance, this is one tool that will support your team in developing all the conditions that will promote creative co-creation and align the team with the compelling purpose.
The assessment is taken by every team member including you as a leader. The report is 27 pages of data that describes what your team looks like and what areas they need to be coached on.
My partnership with Cultural Intelligence Center CQC allows us to run cultural intelligence assessment for teams which facilitating diversity and Inclusion (D&I) strategies making sure they are part of the organization's long-term plans.
My partnership with Six Seconds allows us to incorporate emotional intelligence EQ competencies in the process inspiring deeper human interaction and organizational health. I have access to a variety of Six Seconds assessments for leadership and teams as well as decision making and handling information brain profiles.
