6 Days to Building Relationships

A colleague asked me last week how to establish a relationship with someone on my team. I shared the old adage, it takes you 6 times meeting someone to build a relationship.  In a virtual world, it’s even harder.

What are six things you can do in those meetings to build the bedrock of trust?

  1. Listen
  2. Summarize what people are telling you
  3. Follow up on key items in the meeting in 24 hours
  4. Ask about origin stories
  5. Ask about their values
  6. Share your values
Here is to building a mountain of trusted relationships in 2021.
