Coaching Program & Diagnostic Tool

Stronger workplace relationships drive better business results.

Above all, success in business requires two things: a winning competitive strategy, and superb organizational execution.

Distrust is the enemy of both. I submit that while high trust won’t necessarily rescue a poor strategy, low trust will almost always derail a good one.

– Stephen R. Covey

When we fail to foster a high quality interaction… the result is a lack of deep understanding, fewer creative options, diminished commitment to act, increased anxiety and resistance, and reduced morale and wellbeing.

A psychologically safe environment ignites cognitive diversity and puts different minds to work on the bumpy and difficult journey of strategy execution.

– Harvard Business Review

When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.

– Simon Sinek

After coaching thousands of leaders around the world, we discovered that knowing how to build relationships in a complex work environment impacts everything leaders do and is the focus of most of our coaching work.

In order to better support leaders and organizations in developing great business relationships and collaboration skills, we launched the RQ Relationship Intelligence™ system and coaching program.

What defines a good workplace relationship?

A good workplace relationship is made possible through a mixture of techniques and mindsets.

In our framework, we define a “technique” as something that people can consciously improve on, such as being able to have meaningful and productive conversations. A “mindset” is more representative of how someone approaches a relationship. Does a leader see value in “opening up” in front of their employees? Do they believe that people should be given the benefit of the doubt?

Why focus on relationships?

As a coaching company, we believe in the power of relationships to solve business problems, generate new ideas, and accelerate results. The things we coach leaders on most (such as having influence, executive presence, and impact) are all based on their relationship skills. Essentially, someone’s relationship skills determine their ability to deliver results in the workplace.

How does it work?

Using our proprietary diagnostic tool, we can identify how well leaders in your organization manifest relationship-building skills, behaviors, and mindsets in the workplace.

Through our 1:1 coaching programs and workshops, we can coach to these topics, which directly map to teamwork ability, workplace relationships, and the ability to drive better results.
