About HRDQ: A Trusted Provider of Soft-Skills Training

At HRDQ, we're dedicated to helping organizations thrive by developing their most valuable asset: their people. We believe investing in people leads to greater success, which is why we offer products to promote better learning and achieve better performance, ultimately leading to a better life.

Why Did We Start HRDQ?

It’s simple – we want to help you and your organization thrive through experiential learning that translates to better performance and leads to a better life. We’re all about investing in you.

Experiential is the keyword that explains the power of HRDQ products to deliver on our promise of better learning. HRDQ activities engage learners in situations where they discover the value of a skill for themselves and then practice it. Practice is critical because without it, nobody can become more skillful – at anything. To master riding a bike, you must get on a bike; listening to someone describe how to do it isn't enough. The same applies to the broad range of interpersonal skills covered by HRDQ programs. No practice? No skill. HRDQ is here to help you start practicing.

Experiential Learning results in better performance because it increases the odds that training will transfer from the learning environment to the workplace, where participants can apply what they have learned in a way that improves their job performance. Why? Think about it. If you have learned something about a skill but you've never practiced performing it, would you want to debut your first attempts before an audience of real supervisors, subordinates, coworkers, or customers? Practice during training, in a (hopefully) consequence-free environment, leads to application on the job because it gives learners the self-confidence to use and refine a skill in the real world. They've been there. They've done it. They know they can do it again.

Better performance leads to professional and personal success, which leads to a better life. We aren't referring only to higher salaries, promotions, and status, though all of those certainly matter. We mean simply this: any activity, task, or job is far more rewarding when you can perform it skillfully. Life is better when you do things well.
