Relationship Intelligence in the Flow of Work

relationship intelligence in the flow of work

The global pandemic created a sudden shift and forced the biggest experiment in the history of work – the hybrid revolution.

If organizations are going to thrive, they need to help teams foster connection with colleagues – many of whom have never met face to face. This includes managing misunderstandings and inevitable conflicts. A good starting place would be personality assessments oriented toward relationships, replacing the dominant individualist approaches. People can work together productively over time by understanding how their personalities align (or contrast) with their colleagues. With this inter-personalized insight, they can adjust how they approach each other for better results.

We call this Relationship Intelligence (RQ).

In this guide, we’ll discuss:

  • Making collaboration work by managing and preventing conflict using RQ
  • The difference between measuring individual traits vs. relationship-based strengths
  • How to use technology to scale relationship building within your organization¬†
