Relationships can make up a large part of someone's life. When you have solid relationships with other people, they tend to be more collaborative, cooperative and supportive. Life coach Pam Solberg-Tapper explains that strong relationships can be advantageous to one's job, job performance and overall career.
"There are simple things we can do as individuals to enhance our relationships," she explains.
Here are 3 essential ways to supercharge your relationships:
Trust is a major driver in relationships. In order to be trusted you need to be trustworthy.
Earn trust by keeping confidences, rising above workplace gossip, admitting when you are wrong and being reliable by doing what you say you will do.
Show your appreciation when someone helps you or does something well.
Everyone from your boss to co-workers wants to feel that their work is appreciated.
People will feel closer to you by having been noticed and thanked for their contributions.
People with good relationships tend to accept the different styles, opinions and ideas of others.
Even when they disagree, they are respectful and try to see things from the other person's point of view.
By accepting others, you can avoid conflict and it is a good chance that they will accept you and your ideas too.
