Is Relational Intelligence (RI) more important than anything else?

I love putting good content in my head, and sometimes an unknown author is a crap shoot.  So after recently reading Relational Intelligence, I have to say it was impressive how something so tuned into how to improve relationships with people could apply to business, personal, family or community lives.

Think "Emotional Intelligence" meets Myers-Briggs or DiSC profiles, focused on relationship skill sets and personas that make leaders great.  Check out the free and simple assessment to see where you fall at:  http://rq.relationalintelligence.info/

What I really enjoyed was the frame of reference Steve takes in writing this book.  It wasn't just about RI for the sake of getting ahead, but about developing it with substance and for the right reasons.  It's rare to find tools that encourage us to develop a consistent character and discipline across all of our relationships.

If you are looking for a way to strengthen the impact of your character and consistency across your business and personal life, this is a pretty good tool.  Here's a link to the Amazon summary if you want to check it out:
