LEADERSHIP TRAINING: Relationship Intelligence & Workplace Productivity

“Increasingly, the best of breed lead not by virtue of power alone, but by excelling in the art of relationship.” Daniel Goleman, PhD- Leadership Expert, Author

LEADERSHIP TRAINING: Relationship Intelligence & Workplace Productivity 3
First introduced by Bernard G. Guerney in the 1960s, Relationship Enhancement (RE)  has for over forty years, proven to be an effective productivity booster  in the workplace and in the home. RE is a skills- based training model that focuses on empowering the individual to excel in their personal and professional relationships.


On March 27, 2013, Spaces for Change will be convene an RE training and coaching class targeted at young professionals and entrepreneurs, unemployed graduates, including young school leavers to bolster their employability skills, leadership capabilities and productivity in the workplace. Recognizing that today’s youth can be at the forefront of social change, this training is specifically designed to empower young people to learn new approaches to high performance, sustain corporate and personal relationships, build social capital and become catalysts for change.

Participants will be taught skills that improve their understanding of themselves and others and ways to convey this understanding to each other. As a result they create a shared context in which constructive CHANGE is more likely to occur. Once this relationship context is established, client/participants become more autonomous and can differentiate and ultimately, become more productive, intimate with their colleagues and significant people in their lives. Having learned these skills, and trusting that they can solve their own problems, clients/participants are in better position to find more satisfaction; create more stability in their lives; and are able to deal with life’s crises on their own. RE is not value free: in fact, it is based on important values- such as mutual respect and compassion for each other, which we believe are essential to optimal human development.
 Trainers comprise experts and professional coaches from the United States of America and Nigeria with decades of experience in youth development and career mentoring.  

This training is free! To get a free seat at the training, please send an email to [email protected] or spaces[email protected]
