Relationship Systems Intelligence™ (RSI™)

Transforming the face of leadership

It’s all in the Relationship

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.

The Five Principles of Relationship Systems Intelligence

The five principles of RSI are CRR Global’s proprietary and overarching stance that underpins its body of work. They are required in the art of being a Relationship Systems Worker. These principles get executed through tools leveraging skills which develop competencies.

  • Accessing the Team’s entity:
    Each relationship system has its own unique identity or ‘personality’.
  • Hearing, seeing and feeling the Team:
    every member of the relationship system is a Voice of the System.
  • The Team has the answers:
    Relationships systems are naturally intelligent, generative and creative.
  • Roles belong to the Team:
    Relationships systems rely on roles for their organization and execution of functions.
  • Change is constant:
    Relationships systems are in a constant state of emergence.
