Improve your work environment by learning the science around RelateAbility and the TeamRelate Model. Better equip and empower those you influence by learning to more purposefully communicate and purposefully engage with them.
RelateAbility is a skill that can be learned and developed. TeamRelate is a behavioral model as well as an app and starts where the traditional personality assessment world leaves off. Once you understand your communication styles along with your core values, the book explores how these relate to others in your world, both at work and at home.
Improving our ability to relate to others is the concept of RelateAbility, where we explore the 1:1 dynamic and team dynamic and how to improve each. In light of these concepts, we also explore conflict and engagement in the workforce and bring together the latest industry research on both. Finally we explore Trust, the foundation of any relationship and how improving our RelateAbility increases the trust in our relationships.
The concepts in RelateAbility helps build high performing teams in any organizational context and help make work life better for individual contributors and leaders alike.
