How does S.A.L.T. help?
S.A.L.T. stands for the four pillars of relational intelligence — Somatic Learning, Authentic Conversations, Language & Leadership and Trust Building. This program helps you identify and change old behaviour patterns that may have been causing you to think and respond in negative ways.
It gives a large toolkit to improve your people skills. You learn what builds trust with your subordinates, peers and superiors. Tough agreements, difficult negotiations, collaborations and sticky conversations become easy.
What do you mean by Relational Intelligence?
Relational Intelligence is the act of relating with others intelligently. It’s a capacity, a mindset and a process.
It teaches you how to be connected and stay connected amid tasks. It is what helps forge the personal connections and trust with others that let you see things from each other’s perspectives and overcome the problem at hand.
What is a relational resume?
Your relational resume holds the details of who you are, your behavioral history and details of how you formed relationships in the past. In order to understand this, you need to delve into yourself. You need to uncover your backstory, the things that influenced you in childhood and the stands that you took then.
How does it impact professional development?
Why do I need it as a leader?
Leaders need to interact with various stakeholders, both within and outside the organisation. They may come from various cultural backgrounds, and have different interests and values from you. Yet, you will need to connect with them interpersonally, and act in an ethical manner to overcome challenges.
Is it helpful for me as an entrepreneur?
Yes. Relational Intelligence enables you to have conversations with yourself and others, which helps you build capacity.
Does this help in managing clients?
Yes. The relationships you build with clients are based on the conversations – both the ones you have and the ones you do not. Relational Intelligence helps you have these conversations in a way that shifts the outcome.
Does it address interpersonal trust breakdowns in team?
Yes, it enables teams to build trust with each other by having good conversations. It fosters relationships based on honesty and helps team members handle conflict with grace.
