Building High-Performing Teams
Relationships make or break team success.
Beyond all the strategies for team performance are the relationships that hold them together. Relationship Intelligence (RQ) is the metric that matters most but often gets addressed least.
When teams don't work.
How do you help the team that allows the criticism of co-workers to overshadow the appreciation of strengths? How do you transform a culture that prefers taking the credit versus taking the initiative? How do you restore trust when team members do their own thing or team leaders dominate all decisions?
While it’s not easy, the path is clear. Better teams are possible when you know what makes each member tick.
RQ takes teamwork to a higher level.
Productivity is a multi-player game. The teams that get the most done embrace diversity, value perspectives, and aim each member’s strengths in the same direction.
RQ makes this possible by uniting teams with a common language and timely relationship insight. With fine-tuned self-awareness and a greater appreciation of differing communication styles, high RQ teams are free to focus their collective energy towards meaningful goals.
