Educators understand the pressure that comes from working with young people, their parents, and school colleagues, while simultaneously navigating their workplace environment. And that’s all while trying to live fulfilling personal lives. Our Relational Intelligence Program supports educators to deepen their relationship with both themselves and others amongst these challenges
Relational intelligence can be defined as
“a combination of emotional and ethical intelligence, that involves the ability to be aware of and understand own and others’ emotions, values, interests and demands, to discriminate among them, to critically reflect on them and to use this information to guide one’s action and behaviour with respect to self and other people “. (Modified from Pless & Maak 2017)
Developed from our ground-breaking CrisisID® self-coaching model, this approach takes each participant through a process of identifying their deepest challenges. Through the application of three distinct thinking navigators, participants are then supported to grow from the experience of addressing their recognised challenge. This culminates in a richer understanding of themselves and their relationship with others. They also learn how to assist colleagues through the inevitable challenges of their work.
The program is highly interactive, personalised, and supportive. Participants increase their levels of self-awareness, and apply the filter of kindness and acceptance to shift their self-narratives, leading to increased professional impact and wellbeing. Those taking part experience their relational intelligence through working both on their own and as part of a community of learners.
