What Is Relational Wisdom?

Relational wisdom (RW) is the ability to discern emotions, interests and abilities in yourself and others, to interpret this information in the light of your personal values, and to use these insights to manage your responses and relationships constructively.

Six Relational Disciplines

Just as Windows and Mac OS control every program on your computer, relational wisdom has the potential to impact every aspect of life, not only improving workplace performance and advancement but also enhancing friendships, marriage and parenting.

RW includes six relational skills or disciplines: values-awareness and values-engagement, self-awareness and self-engagement, and other-awareness and other-engagement. 

If we neglect these disciplines, our lives are often characterized by aimlessness, shallow relationships and conflict. But when we cultivate these disciplines, we are more likely to enjoy deep friendships, intimate and lasting marriages, joyful parenting and fulfilling careers.

Training materials are also available in a "faith-based" form for those who wish to integrate their relational skills with their religious convictions.  

Ken Sande is the founder of Peacemaker Ministries and Relational Wisdom 360. Trained as an engineer, lawyer and mediator, Ken has conciliated hundreds of family, business, church and legal conflicts. He teaches globally and has written numerous resources on building relationships and resolving conflict, including The Peacemaker, which has sold over 500,000 copies in seventeen languages.
