If your teams or clients are seeking ways to make better decisions, solve problems more effectively and clarify goals, then the TMS Opportunities-Obstacles Quotient (QO2) Profile is the right solution. 

The QO₂ Profile highlights people’s tendencies to see opportunities or obstacles when they are faced with challenging situations. It helps you to profile how they are likely to approach innovation, change and risk. And it allows you to design solutions to design and execute programmes to support resilience and change and for turning obstacles into opportunities.

The QO2 Profile provides valuable insights as to why some people:

  1. Are threatened by change, while others are energised by it
  2. Hold on to the past, while others race towards the future
  3. Only see problems, while others see opportunity and solutions
  4. Assume the worst (glass half empty), while others see potential (glass half full)
  5. Find it difficult to set goals, while others are driven by them

The QO2 Profile is used for:

  • Leadership & Management Development
  • Risk Management
  • Change Management
  • Life Coaching
  • Performance & Conflict Management
  • Innovation & Creativity Teams
  • Executive Coaching
  • Mindset Coaching
