Relational intelligence (Ri) is Emotional intelligence (Ei) turned outward.
Once we are able to monitor and be aware of ourselves and our emotions and impact, Relational intelligence speaks to our ability to be aware of how we affect others and how their emotional states might be affecting us.
Relational intelligence includes the ability to read and discern other people’s emotions, as well as be able to speak to them about those emotional states and to enter into those conversations with confidence.
This enables us to act with empathy, to interact with and resolve conflict, and motivate and persuade others in ways that have impact.
Three Foundational Practices For Increasing Relational Intelligence:
Act with Empathy
Communicate with Impact
