Relationship Intelligence: Insight to adjust your approach and make interactions more effective.

Everything you do relies on working well with others

Let’s get really good at it.

Doesn’t it seem like some managers and teams always make “it” happen, no matter what “it” is? They’ve mastered the secret to getting consistent, stellar results despite changing roles, goals, accountabilities, structures, or even new team members. They transform the stumbling blocks of conflict and misunderstanding into opportunities to accelerate their success. For these high-achievers, building and sustaining relationships is priority one. They understand that members of their team can go further together than they can alone.

The good news is that you, too, can leverage the power of relationships.

Intelligent insight

High-performing teams—the ones with great relationships—know each other at the core. But that doesn’t magically happen. They’ve done the hard work of understanding their differences and adjusting their personal approach because they care about their team and its outcomes.

Relationship Intelligence—insight into core motives and strengths—is a guide for making these adjustments, so people communicate in a style that their colleagues better understand.

Increase your RQ

The more you apply relationship intelligence (RQ) to your interactions, the easier relating and communicating becomes—even where connections haven’t been strong in the past. RQ’s core insights help you to:
  1. Understand the past – because past experience doesn’t have to dictate future behaviour.
  2. Learn to correctly interpret the present moment.
  3. Make future goals and targets more meaningful to people.
Recast the past​
Remember when you discovered that key overlooked assumption? The one that clarified what was going on in a way you just couldn't see before? That’s what RQ does for relationships. Having a clear window into other people’s intent reframes your shared experience. It clarifies WHY they did what they did, and you stop holding onto blame and stubborn misperceptions. You receive the same benefit when others clearly see the positive intent behind your ideas and actions.
Master the moment
With a clearer understanding of the past, you can do a better job of navigating what arises in the present. No longer clinging to the stories you’ve told yourself, you can use Relationship Intelligence to correctly interpret people’s current words and actions the way they intend them. Better yet, you can adjust your approach by choosing the strengths best suited to engage colleagues and achieve your mutual goals. RQ also enables you to recognise conflict and resolve it quickly.
Co-create the future
Motives move you toward meaningful goals. This insight from Relationship Intelligence opens the door to powerful conversations about what goals mean to each person—and how each person can use their strengths to achieve goals in a personally meaningful way. RQ unleashes an incredible personal power. When people find reasons that resonate with their core motives, they tap into a virtually inexhaustible wellspring of energy and personal passion.
