Discovering the RELISH Model


Discovering the RELISH Model

At this point you should have finished the Leadership Style Finder and been presented with your unique leadership style. (If you haven’t, click here to begin your Leadership Style Finder).

It’s important to remember that all these leadership styles are different and have their own set of strengths as well as blind spots (weaknesses).

Once you have completed the Leadership Style Finder, you will be added to our RELISH series. To make this series easy to digest we have broken up each insight of the RELISH model into its own video and summary which you’ll get access to.

Every day or so, we’ll send you an email which is specifically crafted to demonstrate a RELISH principle and how to it can apply to you. So be sure to open the email and use the link inside to access each RELISH insight.

Recent breakthroughs in neuroscience have revealed insights into the drivers behind all human behaviour and how leaders can harness these drivers for incredible influence and engagement in both personal and professional relationships.

Rather than focusing on control, leaders should focus on the needs and motivations that sit behind human behaviour. The result of which will be significantly increased performance and a much happier team.

Neuroscience breakthroughs refer to the ‘Six Needs of the Social Brain’. These needs are what drive individual, team and organizational performance as well as underpin critical leadership decision-making.

These six breakthroughs provide a new lens through which leaders can view the complexity and intricacies of human behaviour.

They reveal the core elements of human motivation and offer a comprehensive approach for leaders to understand themselves and others in the team environment.

The Six Needs of a High Performance Team can be explained using the RELISH model, which is an acronym for:

NeuroPower RELISH Pyramid

The RELISH model lays out a powerful roadmap of human behaviour and helps us understand the different functions of the brain and how each individual aspect is needed to create our personalities that drive engagement and influence other people.

Some people are higher than others in some of these social needs, which is why we have different strengths and weaknesses and why some leaders excel in certain fields over others.

The whole point of being able to engage in a team is to be able to recognise that everyone is different and if we can engage people in each of these six areas, whether it be in a meeting or having a difficult conversation, we’re much more likely to create a dynamic team that works and wins together and minimises it’s blindspots.
