Going beyond emotional intelligence™

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.

Life Is All About Relationship!

“Building strong personal relationships, succeeding at work and supporting family are far more important to life satisfaction than material living standards.” Oren Cass, The Once and Future Worker

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.

Versatile Principles

Relational wisdom is an “operating system for life” that is being used in businesses, schools and nonprofits around the world.
