High-performing teams are built or broken by one thing.


After decades of research, the science is clear. Teams with Relationship Intelligence (RQ) build trust faster and outperform the rest.

Core Strengths Relationship Intelligence connects your people strategy with your business objectives to deliver your organization’s brand promise. This is achieved through a conscious commitment to improving collaboration, building better teams, and coaching for performance.

The ROI of Relationship Intelligence (RQ)
Organizations with high Relationship Intelligence know how to build indestructible teams. They embrace diversity, navigate conflict, and power through obstacles with smarter decisions.

Without RQ, teams default to turf wars, master the blame game, and implode under pressure.

We can help you create a workplace where relationships thrive.

Create a workplace where relationships thrive

Because talent doesn’t work alone

Your organization is interconnected by teams—by people interacting in big and small ways every day. Every outcome relies on the ability to work well with others, but you can’t just snap talent together and expect them to function together as a team.

The best results are created through relationships.

Relationships are connections built on a foundation of shared experiences and future expectations. Core Strengths Relationship Intelligence helps teams to identify past misperceptions, apply the right approach to the moment, and co-create a better way to work together in the future.

Conflict management

Empower your people to resolve their conflicts and prevent new ones.
As a leader, you know conflict in the workplace is uncomfortable, expensive, and counterproductive. So how do you solve the problem so everyone can get back to work?

Our solutions guide teams on how to take the right approach to stop conflict in its tracks.

It’s Possible to Disagree Productively
Conflict management isn’t putting up with conflict. It’s anticipating, preventing, and resolving it.

Conflict: disagreement that feels like a personal attack on values.

Opposition: objective disagreement that leads to smarter decisions.

Opposing ideas help teams see all sides of an issue. Without healthy opposition, teams won’t innovate or solve big problems. But when disagreement turns personal, it can derail projects and destroy relationships if left unattended.

Relationship Intelligence (RQ) allows teams to embrace diversity, navigate conflict, and power through obstacles with smarter, more effective decisions.
