  • “CQ”

    30- 120 minutes

    Focus: Creative Intelligence

    “CQ” stands for Creative Intelligence and hinges on two crucial factors for leaders who innovate at the workplace:

    #1- Idea Generation:
     Leaders that have the ability to come up with new ideas, solutions, and problem solving capabilities.

    #2- Execution: Leaders who can take an idea (s) and put it into practice with an innovation plan.

    If leaders at a company can’t generate original ideas that have value in their meeting room or their board room, that company stays “Boxed” in.
