Executive 6Q Assessment

The Executive 6Q Assessment

The Executive 6Q Assessment is a comprehensive leadership tool quiz that catches the development needs of a leader in self, team and system before “the 360 degree.”  The test helps leaders take early action, make wise investments, and go from good to great efficiently.   The test includes:

  • Whether a person is on the right track with the right tools.
  • Whether the person can meet the challenge ahead and what may be needed.
  • How the person can stay ahead of changes and be highly effective under the storm.
  • How the person can be his or her best.

To be your best is a part of to how to be a great leader, including how to be a great CEO.  To be yourself is the first step of being your best.

What Makes Executive 6Q Assessment Unique?

Each person is an integrated system of 6 quotients (Q) to choose direction and action (IQ), stay current with changes (Learning Q), relate to others (EQ), gain resources (Public influence Q), remain resilient in the face of adversity (AQ) and maintain energy (HQ).   The breadth of experience, operation, and motivation are included in IQ and EQ.  Mental health management is a part of HQ.

All 6Qs are connected.  For example, IQ and EQ can lose their power due to poor AQ and HQ.   Unlike others, we evaluate all 6Qs instead of IQ, EQ or psychometrics alone and get to the root cause of behaviors or psychological issues instead of wasting time on symptoms only.   In addition, we target issues with the right tools instead of behavior or Psychological tools alone.

To use psychological tools to solve health, business, law and other non-psychological issues is the main reason that only 10% of CEOs believe their corporate leadership development has an impact.  By getting the root causes with the right tools, we often save 50% of the time and have turned 30-40% “intractable issues” tractable.


1. What Can Executive 6Q Assessment Achieve?
The Executive 6Q Assessment will recommend strategy or personal development, such as training in vision, innovation, conflict management, leadership style, resilience or health.  Also, the recommendation can be industrial development in Business, Law, Marketing, Public Relations, Sciences, or management changes in talent, customer or policy-making.   At last, the recommendations can be any combination.  The assessment has 53 dimensions, and its report has 16 pages.

2. Is It Necessary to Assess So Many Factors (Qs)?
Yes. Because 6Qs are integrated with each other, it is impossible to see THE WHOLE PICTURE without evaluating all associated factors. For example, leadership can be compromised if a leader  crashes in setbacks and failures, lack certain talent, stop learning, and have poor health.   Looking at the big picture helps to identify the best shot(s).  Working on these elements also makes it possible to achieve exponential results– if one quotient can make the result 10% better, 2 quotients can improve the outcome to 121%, and 5Qs can bring the result to 161%.

3. What Else Makes the Executive 6Q Assessment Unique?
Executive 6Q Assessment is an integration of Business, Law, Medicine (including Psychology) and other sciences, evaluating participants at micro and macro levels simultaneously.    In addition, the assessment does not rely on “self-awareness or honesty” and helps individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves.  Furthermore, in the absence of significant events, the data of the 6Q assessment are valid for two years, which enables us to assist an executive to meet other challenges and crises from hundreds or thousands of miles away.

4. Does Executive 6Q Assessment Rely on Statistics?
Statistics can give good references but often lead to average results.  The Executive 6Q Assessment both penetrates deeper and examines a broader range of characteristics and the development needs of a leader because the best talents are often NOT average.

5.  Are There Case Studies Available?
Here are some:
1. Should a CEO be Charming?
