Communication. It’s something we could talk about endlessly. No pun intended. We know that communication is the key to healthy relationships – at work and home. But good communication can seem elusive. And maybe that’s because we are always communicating, and when it comes to communication, all of it matters. Every little interaction we have with people either adds to the strength of the relationship or takes away from it. And that can seem overwhelming when all you want to do is ask if they finished that report you need for the afternoon.
So, what’s one to do? Here’s a simple mantra you can keep tucked away at the back of your mind when communicating with people – ask yourself, what’s my responsibility to this relationship? Your answer will help remind you to communicate accordingly.
