How to Apply Relational Agility to Your Everyday Life with Erin Correa
In this episode, Alex and Sara are getting the lowdown on relational agility from talent and leadership development consultant Erin Correa. What is relational agility? As Erin describes it, it is being able to quickly know the stories you’re telling yourself in a particular moment and being able to adapt as needed effectively; it is the relationship you have with the beliefs you have about yourself, other people and how things work in the world. Still a bit confused? We all tell ourselves stories because our brains want to fill in the gaps if we don’t have the full details on a situation—these stories may not serve us positively and they may not be true! Relational agility is all about determining if these stories are actually serving us and how to adapt if they aren’t.
