Get Along with Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime: Create Enduring Connections with Customers and Co-Workers

Getting along with others is a life-long endeavor. Good relationships are vital to our well-being and make a big difference in our effectiveness with customers, co-workers, family and friends. According to Margaret Wheatley, "In organizations, real power and energy is generated through building positive relationships. The patterns of relationships and the capacities to form them are more important than tasks, functions, roles and positions."

Building positive connections with colleagues and customers will improve any business. A cooperative spirit cultivates a culture that brings out the best in people and performance, keeping employees happy, energized and productive. When we communicate well, everything works better at work, and that carries over to our interaction with clients and customers. Good interpersonal communication skills boost the bottom line in many ways - by helping to retain employees, improve morale, "win over" customers, create a loyal following, secure repeat business, expand networks, increase job satisfaction, and more!
