Microlearn relational intelligence: 5 minutes a day
Organizations depend on leaders to create engagement and a sense of belonging for people with different backgrounds. We believe relational intelligence is the skill to manage the new business landscape of diverse workforces as well as diverse workways.
Relational intelligence builds a leadership relevant to a wider range of coworkers by increasing leaders’ awareness of how organizational culture and structure benefits or hinders employee groups in different ways.
This awareness enables a more impactful leadership for organizational performance. We capture the everyday practice of structure and culture in relations at work.
Based on research and professional practice, evenodds has identified five abilities that form the basis of relational intelligence in leadership.
- Critical reflection
- Compassion mindset
- Caring conversation
- Sense of belonging
- Relational leadership
RQ visualizes the interplay and co-dependence between leadership, culture, structure and employee well-being and encourages leaders to take transformative action.
RQ enables individual reflection, group discussion and organizational learning. Leaders engage individually in a daily micro lesson, 5 minutes a day for 30 days straight. Once a week, the program summons all leaders for an hour of group discussion and deep learning on how relational intelligence relates to D&I in general and to organizational D&I targets in particular.
The program is facilitated by senior consultants with a multidisciplinary background from management consulting, industrial economics academia and extensive pedagogical experience from teaching and designing trainings.
