High-performing teams are built or broken by one thing.


After decades of research, the science is clear. Teams with Relationship Intelligence (RQ) build trust faster and outperform the rest.

The ROI of Relationship Intelligence (RQ)

Organizations with high Relationship Intelligence know how to build indestructible teams. They embrace diversity, navigate conflict, and power through obstacles with smarter decisions.

Without RQ, teams default to turf wars, master the blame game, and implode under pressure.

We can help you create a workplace where relationships thrive. 

Every Interaction Matters

How do you transform a team culture? One interaction at a time.

It’s in the daily conversations, the last-minute virtual meetings, and the impromptu DMs where trust is strengthened or strained. Core Strengths prepares teams to master the moment so opportunity doesn’t fall by the wayside.

Build better teams

Teams composed of strong relationships are less likely to have communication breakdowns. Focused on conversations where work gets done, teams with relationship intelligence promote healthy opposition to quickly see all sides of an issue, so they can make timely decisions that drive results.

When people discover how to harness what drives their personal performance, they not only take ownership for their choices, but they begin to appreciate differences in others and build trust. Together, teams learn to create quality interactions where problems get solved and work gets done.

Change Management

Overcome people’s resistance and make the change stick.

People are programmed to resist change.

For your change management initiative to be successful, leaders need to understand:

  • How individual people experience change
  • What makes people decide to embrace change
  • What messages people need to hear, when, and from whom
  • The optimal time to teach people new skills
  • How to coach people to demonstrate new behaviors
  • What makes change stick in someone’s work

The SDI 2.0 assessment and RQ give people at your organization an easy and effective way to understand each other’s strengths, motives, and values—and to collaborate more productively and creatively.

When people in the organization collaborate, leaders can deliver change communications with the confidence that the change will most likely be embraced.

Conflict Management

Empower your people to resolve their conflicts and prevent new ones.

As a leader, you know conflict in the workplace is uncomfortable, expensive, and counterproductive. So how do you solve the problem so everyone can get back to work?

Our solutions guide teams on how to take the right approach to stop conflict in its tracks.
