The CQ Matrix weaves techniques into programs and workshops with the focus on empowering communication techniques to help reposition our lives or brands, or simply our current conversation.  Simply put,  CQ: Communication Quotient™  –  the bridge between Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ). It is the power to communicate your intentions in a way that can be well expressed and received, making both parties feel recognized, and hopefully productive. CQ™‘s mission is to empower individuals to improve their everyday communication skills in order to transform their personal and professional relationships. By providing simple and widely accessible educational tools, CQ™ enables people around the world to conquer everyday obstacles and manifest seemingly unattainable goals. I have been fortunate to attract incredible board members including founding board member, Maria Bello; Dianne Des Roches, Alasdair Munn, Sonja Nuttall, Laurie Racine, Maureen Sullivan, Patricia Arquette, and Karen Zahorsky – all of whom are not only media leaders, but they are also able to laugh at themselves, have had their own communication crashes, and truly understand people. As Munn says “I am particularly interested in CQ as I often am amazed at what triggers me to drop into low CQ.  Most of us do this. I like knowing there are easy ways to miss the near crashes and I am in awe of how leading through our hearts first is the easiest way to avoid a catastrophe. In addition, I am fortunate enough to know many smart individuals who have a hard time expressing what they are talking about either because their IQ is off the scale or their EQ is.  It really doesn’t matter how smart anyone is, or even how emotion someone might be, if we can’t effectively communicate what we are trying to express, it can often become a moot point or totally misunderstood.”
