The Relationships Heatmap

A tool for building better relationships

The Relationships Heatmap is a diagnostic tool that will help you build stronger, more impactful relationships, by identifying the strengths and areas for improvement in your approach.

You’ll pick a place that means something to you, answer questions about your approach to building relationships in that place, and use your visualised results to gain insight and spark discussion. You can then share your results, compare them with others and find practical support to help you strengthen your relationships. 

Pick a place

Choose a place you’d like to Heatmap. Your place might be where you work, where you connect to your community or where you live. It might be an organisation, a service, an online network, or a physical location.

Gain insight

Answer questions about you, your place and your approach to building relationships at your place. Reflect on where your approach to building relationships is strong (warm) and where it’s weak (cool). 

Spark a discussion

Share your Heatmap results with others at your place. See your results side by side and spark a conversation about how you can build better relationships. We’ll signpost you to some useful resources to help you do this.
