Do you have a favorite shape? I love circles because they represent completeness, and so many things that are good in life come in the shape of a circle (I’ll let you define that one).
The truth is we all love circles even if we don’t realize it. We all maintain a circle of people in our lives. We try and manage the circle of people by allowing those we want into the smallest circle and others at different distances outside that circle – all in an effort to manage relationships.
It’s important to manage relationships well since all relationships aren’t equal, but there is an element of how approachable we become if we put too much effort into managing those circles.
Being and remaining approachable is critical if we are to build successful teams, organizations and enduring relationships.
