RW360’s live training in relational wisdom® (RW) is available in a variety of formats, including webinars, full-day seminars, introductory presentations and custom weekend retreats.
Our most popular formats are a 3-hour webinar and a 3-hour in-person seminar, both of which provide an introduction to the principles taught in our longer online course, Discovering Relational Wisdom 3.0.
Continuing Education Credit: Our training has been approved for 10 contact hours of continuing education in a variety of professions.
Costs: Instructor training fees range from $750 to $4,900, depending upon the instructor and type of event. Per student costs range from $15 to $49.
Clients: This training is used by churches and ministries, businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, military bases, professional organizations, police and fire departments and government agencies (see examples of training clients on our home page).
Materials: Students typically receive a detailed study guide, a full scholarship to the full DRW 3.0 online course, a smart phone app that contains hundreds of articles, videos and FAQs, a personal growth plan that includes practical ways to apply relational wisdom in daily life, and access to a $25 pay-it-forward scholarship they may give to a friend.
Small Group Leaders: This training is especially useful for equipping individuals who plan to lead small groups through the complete online course on relational relational wisdom.
Instructors: Webinars and seminars are taught either by Ken Sande, a member of the RW360 staff or one of our other Certified Relational Wisdom Instructors.
Interactive “ABC” Learning
Our webinars and seminars include interactive teaching, demonstration videos, small group discussions and practical applications to achieve the “ABCs” of effective learning:
- Affective learning – shaping emotions, values, attitudes and motivations that inspire godly relationships
- Behavioral learning – shaping purposeful actions, skills, habits and character through personal application and practice
- Cognitive learning – increasing knowledge while shaping thinking skills such as analysis, evaluation and application.
These three dynamics are built into all of our training. They are further advanced by giving every student a full scholarship to our online course, which provides dozens of additional teaching and demonstration videos, application questions, articles and practical life exercises.
In short, the live seminar is designed to provide an entire group with inspiration, vision and immediately applicable relational skills, while the online course is designed to help each individual work the principles of relational wisdom more and more deeply into his or her life.
One of the most exciting features of our training is its evangelistic potential. We teach practical relational skills in a way that makes non-Christians feel valued and welcomed while also showing in how relational wisdom is inspired, empowered and guided by the gospel. This approach gives students the opportunity to invite non-believing relatives, friends, and co-workers to an event that will not only teach valuable life skills but also, and more importantly, introduce them to the gospel of Christ.
In addition, each student receives a free smartphone app that contains both our faith-based (Christian) and values-based (secular) versions of key RW content. During the training we show how Christians can use the values-based concepts on the app to begin conversations about RW with unchurched friends, which can open a door for sharing faith-based concepts as well, including the gospel itself.
Many churches and ministries continue this evangelistic momentum by sending trained RW instructors out into their communities to teach the “values-based” version of relational wisdom in businesses, schools, military bases and other secular settings, thus improving the relational dynamics of their communities and drawing people into their churches (see RW Pastor of the Year).
