About RQ

Considering Jesus’s relational model for choosing the twelve disciples, Relational Intelligence will walk you through how to assess your relationships, define them, discern them, align them, and finally activate your relationships to unlock your greatest potential.

Years of ministry leadership experience and personal experience have convinced Dr. Dharius Daniels: there’s no such thing as a casual relationship. All relationships are catalytic – either pushing us forward into our God-given purposes or holding us back. Our spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, and professional progress is greatly impacted by who we allow to be a part of our lives and what part we allow them to play. With our destiny on the line, relationships are too consequential to nonchalantly roll the dice in managing them.

Relational Intelligence is your action plan for getting smart about your purpose partners. Relationships were God’s idea, writes Daniels, and when we understand and apply what God has to say about them we end up avoiding unnecessary relational turmoil, advancing in all areas of our life, and accomplishing our God-given purpose.

When your purpose is on the line, the cost of relational unintelligence is too great to pay. In this book, you will explore and learn how to activate the relational intelligence you need for the life of purpose you want.


One of the most prolific communicators of our day, Dr. Dharius Daniels is on a mission to help as many people as possible become their best selves while doing their best work. Speaker, coach, and certified emotional intelligence specialist, Dharius specializes in helping others self optimize without self destructing. He acquired his passion to add value to the lives of others at an early age growing up in a small town, Kilmichael, MS. Although the population was less than 700 residents, he was taught by his father that your enlightenment, not your environment, determines your outcomes. He was inspired to unleash his untapped potential while gaining his undergraduate degree from Millsaps College and post graduate degrees from Princeton and Fuller.

With over 20 years of leadership experience, Dharius understands that right information can cause a comprehensive revolution. This passion for transformation inspired him to continue his writing career by releasing his most recent published book Relational Intelligence: The People Skills You Need For The Life Of Purpose You Want.  Dr. Dharius also emerged in the mentoring and coaching arena with the release of the Daniels Den Mentoring & Coaching Program which serves thousands of members.

In addition to his contributions in the field of speaking and coaching, Dharius continues to serve as Lead Pastor of the multi-site, and multi-regional, Change Church. He has also served as an adjunct professor at Princeton. He enjoys downtime with activities such as playing a round of golf or weight training. Dharius is married to his college sweetheart, Shameka, and they are the proud parents of two sons, Seth and Gabriel.

If relationships are that important, then our ability to identify, form, grow, and sustain friendships is crucial. That’s the premise of the book you’re about to read. My good friend Dharius calls this relational intelligence, and it’s all about getting good at being with people.

Steven Furtick

Pastor of Elevation Church and New York Times bestselling author

No success story is written alone, and nothing significant is achieved in a silo. Whether you recognize it or not, your relationships shape your future. That’s why Dharius Daniels’ new book, Relational Intelligence, is a read you shouldn’t miss.

Tasha Cobbs Leonard

As you journey through the pages, you are compelled to consider that the fulfillment of one’s purpose swings on the ability to establish healthy human connections. This is more than another good read; it is a revolution in book form.

John Gray

Pastor of Relentless Church

I can attest that the authority of Dharius Daniels’ words stems from the example he walks out daily. His voice is essential in today’s diluted culture that diminishes relationships to a mere swipe to the left. This book is a course correction for those of us willing to apply its truths.
