Extend Your REACH



Are you tired of old profiling systems that don’t really help you capitalise on their reports?


REACH Quotient (RQ) was launched into Australia in March 2019. It is an evidence-based way to measure not only a default personality style, but more importantly each person’s current agility to adapt to different circumstances and to engage with different people - their REACH.

REACH aligns to 16 key communication and leadership competencies meaning that each person has a personalised plan for growth and development.

In this workshop each person will:  

  • receive a report showing their current REACH 
  • identify their REACH strengths and areas to develop
  • discover how their REACH influences their workplace interactions
  • learn strategies to grow their REACH to better interact with others
