Activity ID: ACSI201652507
CEU Type: Professional and Bible
Credit: Online: 9 hours (1.5 CEU) – Live: 6 hours (1 CEU)*
Course Description: Relational wisdom—a gospel-driven form of emotional intelligence—is your ability to discern emotions, interests and abilities in yourself and in others, to interpret them in the light of God’s Word, and to use these insights to manage your responses and relationships successfully. In this five hour online seminar, Ken Sande describes the biblical and psychological basis for relational wisdom, and provides four simple acrostics that will enable you to weave these concepts into your professional and personal relationships.
Course Objective: Teachers and administrators who master these skills will experience closer and more productive relationships with students and their parents, as well as co-workers and supervisors, resulting in less conflict, improved team-building, better job performance, more effective conflict resolution, a more credible Christian witness, and an example that inspires students to pursue relational wisdom in their lives.

“Ken Sande’s teaching on relational wisdom created the perfect presentation for our regional school leader’s conference. Program directors, senior leaders and board members all left the event with meaningful, biblical and relational tools to lead stronger and communicate better. It was one of the finest presentations we have ever hosted.” Jerome Bowen, Senior Director, ASCI Rocky Mountain / Western Region
“No training program has driven home the message of loving God and loving others more than taking our faculty through Relational Wisdom 2.0. Putting these principals into practice has made a difference and our culture is noticeably more Christ-like as a result.” John Davis, President, Heritage Christian Schools
“I recently completed the RW360 online training course and found it to be inspirational and challenging. I appreciated the logical sequence of the material and the great selection of video clips used to demonstrate relational wisdom in action. I look forward to putting the RW 360 principles into practice and believe it will benefit me personally and professionally. This program is definitely worth your time!” Rose Dunlap, Elementary Principal, St. Joseph Christian School

- In house training (1-1.5 CEU). Some schools use sections of the online course for in house staff training. For example, a school administrator or faculty member can register for the online course and act as the class facilitator (details here). Once a week during a 30-minute staff devotional, the facilitator will connect his or her computer to a flat screen TV or projector, sign in to the course online, and show portions of the course to the staff and guide brief discussions. To provide 6 hours (1 CEU) of instruction, the facilitator must cover steps 1, 4 and 7 in each lesson. To provide an additional 3 hours (0.5 CEU) of instruction, the facilitator must also cover steps 2, 5 and 8 in each lesson. When teaching an entire staff this way, schools may contact RW360 for a special discount, which would include CEU credit, study guides and full scholarships to the entire online course for staff who want to dig deeper by accessing all of the course content.
