Default What is Relationship-Building?

In ever aspect of life we are in, whether getting involved in the social activities, building our career path, or socializing with family and friends, we interact with various type of individuals. Such interaction may occur with familiar people with whom we are in close contact like our family and friends or with new acquaintances. We may also build a connection over a period of time with our work colleagues or members in a club. The fact that we interact with people everyday means that we are building a relationship with these individuals as we associate ourselves with them in one or the other way.

Concept of Relationship-Building

The term ?relationship? is rooted from the word ?relation? and is defined as a a mutual affiliation or connection between individuals or groups of people or entities.

Relationships are built where there is mutual understanding between or among individuals. However, this is not built overnight. Establishing a relationship has certain requirements for it to develop. This concept is especially true if the individuals have just initiated a mutual connection. For an existing relationship such as that of family members, it simply needs to be fostered and nurtured.

There are various kinds of relationships that we all engage in and are rooted from a particular need of the person. For personal and emotional needs, we have family relationships, romantic relationships, and friendships. To meet our professional needs and demands, we form business relationships with our colleagues and customers.

Most relationships, if not all, are not always positive. There are times when the mutual bond of the individuals is tested by adversities and challenges. Taking care of a relationship is no different than nurturing a plant. Failed relationships are brought about by a weak foundation. Successful relationships are strengthened and hardened by the test of time.
