February Leadership Forum
Relationship Intelligence: Understanding and Developing Your Leadership Superpower
Presented by Steve Roskamp and Jenny Hedrick, Achiles Consulting
This workshop will focus on first understanding and then developing your leadership superpower: Relationship Intelligence (RQ). In this new and unique work environment, creating authentic connections with those you lead and within your teams may require a new set of skills. Relationship Intelligence will help you better understand the motivational drivers for yourself and for those around you. That insight will amplify the impact of your leadership as those you lead will feel more fully seen and understood. A new approach to conflict will be also be explored to help you navigate through it in a more productive way. In addition, RQ will offer a better understanding of strengths and a reframing of “weaknesses” to enable you to more effectively coach your direct reports.
The session will be interactive in nature, with both large and small group discussion, and practical exercises designed to challenge you to apply these ideas immediately with those you lead. As your insight develops, the speed of collaboration increases, conflict is kept to a minimum, and you and your team can make better decisions and perform at peak levels of efficiency and productivity.
