Work relationships are specific expectations for the interactions among people in various positions in an organization or company. These relationships can be personal, professional, or a combination of both.
Here are the seven types of work relationships with some tips on improving them:
Co-worker relationships can be neither personal nor professional but simply circumstantial. Co-workers are your acquaintances through your organization or company. However, aside from belonging to one organization, your interaction with them is very minimal.
The most intimate type of work relationship you can ever have is something that is not considered specific to work alone. They are your friends in real life who will continue to be so even after you leave the company.
Your manager assigns your work, impacts the work you do and don’t do, and ultimately helps you succeed. Your direct report includes people who report to you, which means you are their manager. Direct reports also determine if you will succeed or not.
Mentor and mentee is the highest form of work relationship that you can ever have. A mentor is the one you go to for guidance regarding your career. They help you during your most difficult problems. On the other hand, your mentee is someone who seeks advice from you.
An office spouse is someone you spend a lot of time with. Office spouses are the ones you go to for advice and venting out. There might even be rumors at one point or another about the two of you even if it is only platonic.
Your team members are employees just like yourself who belong to the same team as you. It can be the team you are working with every day, a committee that you joined, or a group that works together for one activity.
Your work friends are people whom you socially interact with at work. You eat lunch together, sit beside them during meetings, converse with them at happy hours and work events, and even see them now and then outside work.
While it doesn’t mean that you should be best friends with all the people in your company or organization, good work relationships can be improved through the following:
Always welcome new ideas, including those that contract yours. Encourage healthy dialogues and take their perspective into account when making decisions.
Being trustworthy and trusting your colleagues means you can be sure that everyone pulls in just one direction. No one will try to undermine others or hurt the career of another person behind his or her back.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
