CQ for Coaches

Diversitas is proud to present our Cultural Intelligence (CQ) for Coaches Programme.

Do you want to broaden your impact as a coach by working effectively with diversity?

The world is changing. The business environment has become very diverse. Whilst this offers benefits it also throws up huge challenges. Leaders are being invited to engage with growing diversity in the work that they do and we, as coaches need to be equipped to support them to leverage their diversity dynamics effectively. Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is emerging as a key capability for both leaders and coaches to support effective engagement with diversity.

If you are an internal or external coach who works with managers and leaders engaged with diversity, then this highly interactive programme is for you.

The Cultural Intelligence (CQ) for Coaches Programme is aimed at practicing coaches seeking to be equipped to work more effectively across different diversity contexts (age, gender, ethnicity, functional domains).  It will enable you to develop your own Cultural Intelligence (CQ) as a coach and also offer you strategies to support the development of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) for your clients.
