Further beyond Emotional Intelligence (relationship with oneself), and Social Intelligence(relationship with others) lies Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSI) where the focus is on the web of connection between members of the entire group, team or system.
RSI is an advanced and courageous way of approaching leadership and team interactions. The development of RSI within a team or organizational system accelerates collaboration and supports the creative thinking needed to face the current challenges. In the same way that Emotional Intelligence equips individuals to master their internal life, and Social
Intelligence engenders empathy, RSI enables leaders and teams to tap into the true potential of human beings’ collective intelligence and creative powers.
The basic idea of RSI is the redirection of focus from the individuals within the system, to the whole system as an entity in itself. This shift in focus enables Leaders, teams and organizations to move beyond personal concerns and conflicts to a positive and generative group identity. The strength of a team’s identity provides resilience and the resources necessary to navigate the constantly changing challenges organizations face.
