Developing Relationship Skills

RocheMartin defines Emotional Intelligence by a set of 10 competencies and this is one in a series of blogs covering each one.

The Relationship Skills competency focuses on the attitudes we take into our relationships, that lead to collaborative partnerships!

The 3 components of Relationship Skills are:

  • Equality

  • Treating everyone as your equal. No better, no worse. No judgement. We may be different, but we're all equal.

  • Mutuality

  • Always aiming for win-win relationships. How can we all get something we want from the relationship?

  • Empowerment

  • Creating the opportunity for shared contribution, control and responsibility that leads to buy-in and motivation to work together.

To find out more and why it's so important, have a look at this blog.

A few ideas to increase your level of Relationship Skill competency

  • Adopt Equality, Mutuality and Empowerment as your own!

  • Learn from the NLP Communication Model

  • Stop judging and think DIFFERENT rather than right or wrong
