Coaching with Core Strengths: Results Through Relationship Intelligence

Friday, February 17 @ 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. EST 

Session Description:

After decades of research, we’re driven by one central reality: lasting results are the product of resilient relationships. So, we’ve devoted our entire mission to helping leaders and organizations develop Relationship Intelligence (RQ): the science of relationships and how to improve them.

Our goal is to give your organization a common language and actionable insight where you can:

  • Improve Collaboration: Leverage differences and build trust to overcome innovation-killers while rapidly achieving goals. 
  • Build Better Teams: Whether in person or remote, teams with resilient relationships achieve breakthrough when others breakdown. Teams with high RQ shape the conversations that solve problems and get work done. 
  • Coach for Performance: Turn managers into effective coaches. 
Core Strengths’ real-time RQ insight elevates the manager-team relationship, allowing them to rise to challenges and respond to opportunities, together. Bottom line, that elusive “it” factor is Relationship Intelligence (RQ). It is teams who know how to speak each other’s language and show up with the right strengths for the moment — all while staying true to their intrinsic motives and values. That’s “it”. So if results are your goal, let relationships be the glue. That’s RQ.

What You Will Learn During the Webinar:

  • How to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of individual motives and strengths
  • The ability to tailor communication-based on individual motives and preferences
  • Understand diverse personalities and how that can trigger conflict
  • Discover your strengths and deploy them at the right time for the right reason for greater effectiveness

Before the Webinar

The SDI 2.0

Core Strengths® is powered by the Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI 2.0). This award-winning, scientifically validated assessment provides four views of a person. It reveals why they do what they do, and how they relate to others. Using Relationship Intelligence (RQ), the SDI 2.0 provides a common language for understanding what’s important to the people on your teams, and how they can work together more effectively. It provides tools for choosing the right strengths to make the right decisions, even in high-stakes situations.

After registration, you will receive information on how to complete your assessment prior to the webinar.
