Iris Grimm, Professional and Certified Executive Coach Awarded Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) Certification

A program that primes the brain for trust, partnership, and mutual success

Marietta, GA (January 17, 2017) Iris Grimm, President of Master Performance Inc., a coaching and training company, has earned the prestigious designation of Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) Certified Coach. Iris is one of 240 coaches worldwide who has earned C-IQ Certified Coach in the inaugural program.

Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) uses a transformational approach that combines neuroscience and coaching. The C-IQ methodology and comprehensive tools enable organizations and its staff to lead healthy conversations that are based on trust, co-creation, and mutual respect. Unique is the alignment with neuroscience, which looks at communication in a different light. This science-based methodology speaks to healthcare leaders and produces a very fast response and track rate to extraordinary results.

Judith E. Glaser, the CEO of Benchmark Communications, Inc. and Chairman of the CreatingWe Institute., personally mentored the graduates and is the author of the bestselling book, “Conversational Intelligence:  How Great Leaders Build Trust and Get Extraordinary Results.”
Glaser insists, “To get to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of culture, which depends on the quality of relationships, which depends on the quality of conversations. Everything happens through conversations.” She created the C-IQ framework and has been a forerunner of transforming corporate cultures from fear-based and “powering over” employees, to cultures of collaboration, trust, and tremendous rewards, both monetarily and within the quality of relationships.

At a time where healthcare is going through demanding and disruptive challenges, collaborative conversations among administrative leaders and healthcare providers are essential for long-term success.

C-IQ is not limited to top executives in corporations. When C-IQ is put into action outside of work, personal lives have transformed as well. C-IQ is empowering “everyday folks” to enhance the quality of all their relationships.

It teaches individuals and businesses alike, how to interact with the utmost respect, and connect deeply through conversation. These high-level conversations significantly reduce fear and judgment, producing a foundation of mutual trust and safety. This approach propels companies and relationships into a space of co-creative discovery. And it’s in this space that ROI soars both in business and in life.

Iris is a certified expert to coach and facilitate the C-IQ methodology. She expands her service offerings with a variety of customized programs that address the organization’s needs and goals. Iris knows that effective coaching requires a customized, broad, and flexible approach. The theme “change your conversations, change your life” is the foundation for her transformative work. “ She says, “I look forward to introducing and implementing C-IQ in more healthcare organizations. I am convinced that its application will have a tremendous impact on the bottom line, cooperation, and most importantly patient care.”
