Everything Happens Through Conversations!
"Getting to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of the culture, which depends on the quality of the relationships, which depends on the quality of the conversations. Everything happens through conversations!" – Judith E. Glaser

What is Conversational Intelligence?
Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) is the hardwired and learnable ability to connect, navigate, and grow – a necessity in building healthier and more resilient organizations and communities in the face of change. It begins with elevating the level of Trust that you create with others – and ends with the quality of interactions and conversations that result. There is no more powerful skill hardwired into every human being than the wisdom of conversations!
Origin of C-IQ
Judith E. Glaser's lifelong goal was to help leaders build a whole new sensitivity for the words they use and the conversations they have with others. Words either cause us to bond and trust more fully and think of others as friends and colleagues, or they cause us to break rapport and think of others as enemies. As you see the connection between language and health, your mind will open up and you will learn how to create healthy organizations through conversational rituals.
The CreatingWE Institute
For over three decades, we have carved out a niche that was previously not in plain sight in many consultancies - the importance of conversations in shaping corporate culture and achieving corporate goals. Today, Conversational Intelligence® is the framework of our consulting and coaching work.
