Communicate & Connect
It’s All About Relationships
What’s your best relationship? What makes it the best? You probably thought of some common ground or common set of values, or the way you communicate with the other person. Perhaps the connection you have inspires you to share openly with each other, indicating a high level of trust. Trust is fundamental for a strong and lasting relationship.
We don’t get very far in life without positive relationships. Organizational or business relationships are based on the same characteristics and values as our personal relationships. The relationships those in our organization are able to build and foster reflect the health of our organizational culture as well as the bottom line. When team members connect with each other and stakeholders/clients to transparently communicate in a way that follows and supports the vision, mission, and priorities of their organization, they stand a far greater chance of achieving stated priorities and goals.
