“Relationships before tasks.”
- 20 Comment
I’m writing this as much for myself as for each of you. “Relationships before tasks.” I must remind myself to put relationships before tasks. Yes, we’re constantly on deadline or swamped with too many clients. But we shouldn’t be too busy for our relationships. Easier said than done, right? I’m not saying give all of yourself to others and forsake your deadlines. It takes a strong person to set boundaries and not let others take advantage of your time. I’m talking about those times when you can sense a co-worker or client might need personal/relationship-building talk before jumping into the task. Connecting on a real level is an investment in the future and will ultimately lead to a more successful outcome.
