Positive Relationships in Business

“Being in business is all about relationships!”  That should be our top of mind mantra.  So with that in mind, let’s look at how to build positive relationships in business.

Personal Relationships

Personal FriendsIn everyday life, we need the human touch of friendships – some very close ones and some more casual.   They make us know that we belong to our communities.   How do we make friends?

There seems to be a progression:  From an introduction and handshake with a smile and direct eye contact to some casual social contact to more usual and intense social contact to introduction to our close friends and family.  In this progression, we are watching for and showing some very important qualities.  Is there a common interest, honesty, ethics, generosity and social grace?

Business Relationships

Positive Business RelationshipsIn the business world, we watch for reasons to trust and connect with people so that there is a desire for an action of some sort.  We look for those same important qualities and when we find them, we feel the trust building and we do business, make referrals and share information.
I’ve been watching how relationships develop on social platforms and observe it’s basically the same.  This is not marketing; initially, it’s just making business friends.

This Mindset Monday post is presented by LowellAnn Fuglsang, Business and Career Coach, especially for solopreneurs.

In my workstyle-lifestyle coaching work I love helping solopreneurs find direction, stay motivated and build systems that both support and promote their business. One support that I like to emphasize for them is the Google experience.  Two great places to begin are my Weekly Being Your Own CEO Success Circle and The Portable Business Coach (a tool that will tell you where you need to put more time and energy)
