When you hear someone speak about forming a world-class organization or a high performing team, it comes down to the power of building and nurturing relationships.
The investment in taking a deliberate approach in developing healthy and productive relationships cannot be overstated enough. Even the difficult relationships matter in helping us shape an organization or team. But there are some key principles we need to remember and employ to make relationships effective.
Unity is more important than uniformity
– We don’t need to all act the same but we need to all be aligned around the mission and vision of what we’ve set out to do as a team
How we work speaks volumes about what we believe
– Our work ethic and effort tells the team what matters most to us and who matters most to us – what’s most valuable
Relationships are one thing we can’t take for granted
– Most great things take time to build and only a moment to damage or destroy. Relationships need to be nurtured.
What’s your measure of a healthy and productive relationship?
