Behave in a Way That Secures Relationships
Tips to Improve People Skills
The best way to build and maintain a relationship is to apply both the Golden Rule and the Platinum Rule. One encourages you to treat others as you want to be treated, and the other requires that you treat others as they want to be treated.
Generally, both fall into basic categories” respect and trust. If you treat others with respect, a basic tenet of all relationships, they will trust you. And you need to maintain that trust to retain their respect, which means you have to hear them, and let them be heard.
The list is long, and it’s focused and tedious work some days (every day with some people). But if you solid relationships that last, you have to behave in a way that secures them.
