What is AQ?

AQ, or adaptability quotient, is a holistic measure of workplace adaptability. The higher your AQ, the more likely you will be able to recover from setbacks, find alternative solutions to challenges, and embrace change.

The AQ adaptability framework comprises three core dimensions and 15 sub-dimensions. By recognizing how you adapt, why you adapt (or don’t), and when you adapt best you can begin to predict, design, and shape your future and the future of your team or organization.

Embedded in the dynamics of every dimension and sub-dimension of the AQ framework are potential blind spots that can impede your best efforts at change if left unresolved. Gain insights into your AQ, your strengths, and potential challenges to chart your path to success through seasons of change.
