Why invest in the Relationship Intelligence of your people?



In today’s service-based economy work gets done with or through people.

We work with and along people every day - our colleagues, customers, managers, business partners. Social interactions continue when we leave work - friends, partners, family members, neighbours. 

Relationship intelligence is a skill we all need to succeed because everything we do relies on working well with others. Organizations depend on positive interpersonal connections to accomplish their goals. For this reason relationship intelligence is a needed skill within the workplace.

How do we develop Relationship Intelligence?

By getting down to what really matters for every individual.

High-performing teams have great relationships because they understand, accept and are able to harness their different strengths and motives.

Relationship Intelligence means having insight into people’s core motives and strengths and being able to make adjustments, so you communicate in a style that they better understand.

We develop people’s relationship intelligence by using award winning and globally recognised profiling tools that help people understand how to influence people who think, behave, and communicate differently.

This enables us to go deep - on the level of motives that drive our behaviour rather than just behaviour itself.

We develop Relationship Intelligence through our practical team buildings, individual coachings and leadership development programmes.

Djurdjica Preočanin, Training & Development Manager, Coca Cola Beverages Croatia

As much as we were clear about what our needs are when it comes to ‘influencing’ as training, the more difficult part was sourcing training suppliers who could actually recognise what we need and design and deliver a customized programme. Fast Forward did the job perfectly, from Training Needs Analysis to training design and delivery. The impact of the training is now visible every day when you talk to delegates - the profiling tool itself (SDI®)

We gained quite a new perspective on how we are different, with some people that are thinking deeply, while others are just goign straight ahead and some taking care more fort he people or putting the emphasis on strong relationships. Indeed, fort he phrase that we value diversity, we got a flavor of what that really means in our day-to-day work.

Fast Forward helped our Customer Service team to realise that an individual cannot win as an individual, but as an individual, but as a team. By using SDI we learned how to react to different types of people and this really helps to make our dialy work with customers and colleagues easier. This has helped us to solve problems together and to adapt easier with less stress to all the changes we are facing daily.

People were speaking more openly about tehir values, style of communication and different personality types were better undestood after the workshop. This workshop helped also me as a leader since I can slightly modify the communication with each individual.
