What is relationality? Our relationality helps us to connect and work well with others in our lives. We need to learn to be open in our outlook and to show respect for both our common humanity and the differences in how different communities and cultures express this. This means looking for the worth and dignity that lies in each other and contributing whole-heartedly together to create and curate purpose-driven and high-functioning teams.
- Learn the self-awareness of knowing ourselves through asking: who am I?
- Live in relationships built by earning our places through asking: where do I fit in?
- Lead as a servant who goes on a journey from me to you to us through asking the question: how can I best serve others?
- Work vocationally and find our calling by asking the question: whose am I?
- Building a robust and resilient sense of perceived belonging and social standing – how you recognise that you are connected to, bring value to, gain from, and are valued by your network of family and friends for these contributions and the humanity you bring to others
- Adopting an open and respectful approach to cultural fit and understanding – how you identify with and respond to the history, culture and honourable traditions of your social grouping while also connecting with and learning from those of other communities
- Working on a range of language skills that will enable a broader, richer, and more compassionate experience of the world – how you deepen your understanding of how to communicate with other people using your own and other languages and associated customs
- Locating their capacity to grow in connection and shared purpose with others through improving their relational skills – how you develop your ability to listen with care and empathy to the voice of others and to seek out ways to find common ground, appreciate difference, resolve conflict, and achieve the satisfaction of mutual interests and concerns
