The business world is unique in how the people within it relate to each other. Building trust is always essential. Yet the goals, actions and events that drive strong professional connections aren’t necessarily the same ones you rely on to forge and deepen personal relationships. Sound confusing?
Luckily, certain aspects of the two endeavors do overlap. With a little practice and some simple tweaks, you can leverage the relationship-building skills you’ve mastered in your private life while you’re at work—not only to strengthen critical partnerships, but also to nurture new customer and client relationships.
