Relationships can be one of your company’s most important assets. No business can succeed without building effective relationships with employees, customers, and others who directly affect daily operations. Consider these six relational truths when you seek to build relationships in any arena:
- First impressions are lasting.
- You only have a limited amount of time to say what you need to say.
- If your behavior doesn’t align with what you say, people will notice.
- If you are the only one doing the talking, the relationship feels one-sided.
- Always saying the same thing doesn’t build, it bores.
- How you say something matters just as much as what you’re saying.
Think strategically about your business relationships and don’t underestimate the impact they can have on your future business efforts. Strong relationships can improve team morale, increase brand recognition, and lead to new business opportunities.
