Faith-Based Relational Wisdom
This course provides an introduction to the theology, benefits and practical applications of relational wisdom, which is a biblically grounded form of emotional intelligence.
This training will start you on a journey to improving your ability to read emotions and influence other people, develop greater empathy and self-control, communicate more clearly, resolve conflict, build fulfilling relationships and enjoy a compelling witness for Christ.
These principles have the potential to impact every area of your life, including your family and friendships, church, workplace performance and career advancement.
The course includes six hours of teaching and demonstration videos, interactive quizzes, Bible study, reflection and application questions, and supplemental articles. It typically takes 8-12 hours to complete, depending on how much optional reading and writing you do.
This course is being used in churches, ministries, businesses and seminaries (see a list of training clients), and has been approved for continuing education credit. It is available for individual or group study using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
Scholarships are available for active or retired military, law enforcement, fire-fighting and similar first-responder personnel and their families, as well as for students and individuals with limited finances.
Note: If you received a scholarship code from a seminar prior to April 1, 2019, or a pay-it-forward scholarship from a friend who took an earlier version of this course, please email Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org for an equivalent replacement coupon.
