Free Emotional Intelligence Training During the COVID-19 Crisis
The RW360 team is deeply concerned about the relational, emotional and physical stress that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing around the world. Emotional intelligence training provides powerful skills for conquering such stress and strengthening valuable relationships.
Therefore, RW360 is making our training available online for free to everyone around the globe. Custom material is available below for the following groups:
- Healthcare Workers
- Employers, Employees and Unemployed
- Schools, Teachers and Students
- Stay-at-Home Families
- Everyone and Anyone!
We are especially concerned for healthcare workers, who are facing increased compassion fatigue, long and erratic hours, workplace conflict, family disruption and exposure to a deadly disease, all of which contribute to emotional exhaustion and burnout.
As these studies show, training in emotional intelligence can provide skills that enable healthcare workers to overcome these types of stress while fulfilling their calling to provide effective healthcare to those who are ill.
Therefore, RW360 is offering healthcare workers and their families free access to our online training in relational wisdom (aka, “RW”), which is an enhanced form of emotional intelligence. This offer applies globally.
This 8-hour course, which normally costs $49, has been approved for 10 hours of continuing education credit for nurses throughout the U.S. and in many other countries (details here). You can preview the two course study guides below.
Please help us to serve as many of these devoted workers as possible by sharing this blog post widely in your church or business and through your social media network.

Course Overview & Sample Study Guides
Relational wisdom (RW) is an enhanced form of emotional intelligence (EI). RW training can improve your ability to read emotions, exercise empathy and self-control, reduce stress, communicate clearly, influence and persuade others, resolve conflict, build lasting relationships and set an example that will inspire others to improve their relational skills.
This training was developed by Ken Sande, author of The Peacemaker, which has sold over 500,000 copies in 17 languages.
Training is available in faith-based (Christian) and values-based (secular) formats so that people can study these concepts in the context of their personal worldviews (see how worldviews and values guide behavior).
These courses have been approved for continuing education credit in several fields and may be studied individually or in interactive groups. Each course takes 8-12 hours to complete (see detailed course information at the RW Academy).

We realize that you may not find time for this training until the pressures of this pandemic subside. Therefore, it is not necessary to begin the course immediately. All you need to do to take advantage of this offer is to register for the course before May 1 (May 31 for healthcare workers). You can then begin and complete the course at your leisure.
Employers, Employees & Unemployed
Workers around the world are facing enormous stress, either because of increased workloads or loss of employment. As pressure and fear mount, out-of-control emotions can trigger conflict and damage relationships in the workplace and at home.
Employers can counteract these dynamics by using RW courses for company-wide training, which can strengthen employees’ relational skills and reduce stress at work and at home. As the following studies and articles show, this type of training also makes companies more resilient, productive, innovative and profitable:

Schools, Teachers and Students
As schools close and instructors improvise ways to educate children in their homes, teachers, students and parents alike are facing heightened stress.
Therefore, this is an opportune time for schools to promote online training in relational wisdom, which can equip children and adults with skills that enable them to manage their emotions, develop greater empathy and turn conflict into an opportunity for relational growth.
This training has has been approved for 10 hours of continuing education credit for teachers in Montana, and RW360 is pursing CE approval nationally. Until that approval is secured, individual teachers may seek CE approval from their state licensing authorities.

Relational wisdom may be defined as the ability to love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself. In other words, RW is simply living out the two great commandments that Jesus taught 2,000 years ago.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given the church a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live out these commandments through personal service and gospel ministry to people who are confused, anxious and, in some cases, battling a life-threatening illness.
The following articles show pastors and church members how they can make the most of these opportunities as they encourage one another to improve their relational skills through interactive online study groups and by putting RW principles into action in practical ways that can serve and comfort others … while introducing them to Jesus and his gospel.
