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.

Core Strengths RQ

High-trust teams rely on Relationship Intelligence

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.

How we help

People are complex. With the right approach, productive relationships don’t have to be.

Team Performance

Trust, fluid communication, and the ability to explore all sides of an issue are at the core of high-performing teams. When teams can visualize the inner workings of their team dynamics, they can embrace their diversity and tackle any challenge together.


Employees who receive meaningful feedback from their managers are 3.5x more likely to be engaged. The best managers understand how to connect business goals to that which is intrinsically meaningful to a person so that work is an energy source and not an energy drain.

Conflict Management

There’s a fine line between conflict and opposition, but there’s an enormous chasm between their outcomes. With too much conflict, productivity suffers. Not enough opposition; the best ideas are suppressed. Teams that learn to manage this tension are unstoppable.
