Background to the Assessment
At WeAreCompany we help you to assess, review and improve relationships by looking through three lenses.
The first lens helps you to examine the foundations of great relationships – call it ‘emotional intelligence’. The quality of any relationship is shaped, to a significant degree, by the innate self-knowledge and social awareness that each individual brings to the relationship.
The second lens focuses on the contextual factors that affect great relationships. However strong our emotional intelligence is, a set of extrinsic factors have the potential to both weaken or strengthen our relationships with others.
The third lens highlights the marks of great relationships. If relationships are flourishing, we should expect to see certain patterns of behaviour and indicators of collective effectiveness.
For example, in the following areas: how well we manage conflict, our propensity to forgive and to apologise, our willingness to be vulnerable, the degree to which we focus on impact and results.
Our systematic approach to strengthening relationships uses all three of these lenses.
To give you a taster for our approach the Individual Relational Assessment below takes a look at the second lens, where we explore the contextual factors that affect great relationships. Here we draw on the ‘Relational Proximity Framework’ (developed by our Partner, the Relationships Foundation). This framework introduces five drivers of relational proximity – Encounter, Storyline, Knowledge, Fairness and Alignment.
Taking it forward
Once you’ve completed the Assessment we will send you an email containing your results – have a look in your inbox and take some time to reflect on what you have learnt.
The email also contains some thoughts on how to interpret your results.
This really is only the start of the story. We have so much more to share with you.
Our full suite of Relational Assessment Tools allow you to create a Relational Scorecard for your organisation across all three lenses. A scorecard like the one below.
