MORE IDEAS FROM Building Great Work Relationships: Making Work Enjoyable and Productive
There are several characteristics that make up good, healthy working relationships:
Engagement at work is a sign of employee motivation and resulting productivity. Unfortunately, only about 13% of people globally are engaged at work, and disengaged employees cost the economy $500 billion per year. Work engagement has a direct correlation with performance.
There is a dire need to increase our ability to collaborate with disengaged and less motivated employees.
To be effective in organizations today, you must be able to influence people. Your title alone isn’t always enough to sway others, nor do you always have a formal position.
Having influence in the workplace has clear value : You get more done and you advance the projects you care about and are responsible for, which means you’re more likely to be noticed, get promoted, and receive raises.
Sometimes our closest and most important relationships are also the most difficult. Our relationships are both cooperative and competitive. We work together with the ones we love but also have a bit of rivalry going on at times. That is why friends and loved ones can have such a positive influence; these relationships can also lead to envy.
We can get close to the people we love while making sure they feel like we’re on their side, and not a rival to be outdone.
