Change Intelligence: Use the Power of CQ to Lead Change that Sticks

 

barbara_trautleinBarbara A. Trautlein, Ph.D. argues that just as we can measure our IQ, our EQ, and any number of our other intelligences, we can also assess our change intelligence. Barbara developed Change intelligence model, or CQ, as a tool to provide leaders awareness of their own change leadership style and the ability to adapt their style to be optimally effective in leading change across a variety of situations.

I asked Barbara how we can use the CQ model to diagnose our change intelligence and how it can help us leverage our personal change leadership style to lead change more effectively than before.

She has over twenty years’ experience empowering people to achieve transformational professional and personal goals.

I had the opportunity to attended Barbara’s presentations at the 2013 PMI Global Congress in New Orleans. Her presentation was outstanding. She even received a standing ovation from the audience, something that I have not seen happen ever since I started going to this event in 2006. I highly recommend Barbra as a keynote speaker.
