Healthy relationship among employ-
ees leads to a positive ambience at the
workplace. You feel like going to work
every day if you have friends in the
office. A single brain sometimes cannot
do wonders where as many brains put
together can reach to innovative ideas
and solutions which eventually benefit
not only the organisation but also indi-
viduals associated with the same.
Building healthy relationship with
people around is no rocket science and
just needs few simple tips:
1. Positive attitude is the key to a
successful and healthy relationship.
Never look at the negative side of an
individual. Trust me, it would not yield
As a professional, learn to ignore
things and do not take things too seri-
ously. An individual must not enter
work with his personal problems. Learn
to keep your personal and professional
problems separate. You just can t afford
to argue with your team members just
because you broke off with your girl-
friend or boyfriend the previous night.
Your colleagues have nothing to do
with your personal life.
2. Learn to appreciate people. If
someone has performed well, do not
forget to give a pat on his/her back and
appreciate him/her in public. Jealousy
is one of the negative traits which would
not only spoil your relationship with
people around but also put a big ques-
tion mark on your survival in the organ-
isation. It is always better to change
ourselves rather than expecting the
other person to change for us.
3. Learn to trust others. Office people
are not necessarily always your enemies.
Good people are everywhere, one just
needs to find them. Believe me; an indi-
vidual cannot work in isolation. He
needs people around to talk to and dis-
cuss various issues or problems. It is
absolutely normal to discuss your prob-
lems with your team members; just
you need to know where you should
draw the line.
Be trustworthy. If someone has con-
fided in you, do not discuss with others.
It is absolutely unethical to break any-
one s trust.
4. Helping others goes a long
way in building healthy relationship
among employees. What is the
harm in sharing knowledge?
Remember, no one in this whole
world can steal your knowledge.
It would stay with you forever.
Help others in their day to day
5. Respect your fellow workers.
Do not underestimate anyone. At
the workplace, every individual is
same and working for a common
objective i.e. - generate revenues
for the organisation. Do not mis-
behave with anyone at the work-
place, be it your team members or
superiors. Fighting and arguing
not only spoil your relationship
with others but also speak a lot
about your upbringing and family
6. Effective communication is
one of the major factors contribut-
ing to a healthy relationship among
people. Ensure transparency and
fairness at all levels.
Crucial decisions must be taken
in the presence of all. Communi-
cate effectively with your col-
leagues. Talk to people around you.
No one would like a Boss who
merely sits in his cabin and passes
on instructions over the phone.
As a team manager, you need to
sit with your team, address their
grievances, discuss and suggest
them best possible solutions.
There are all types of people
around. If you do not agree to
someone, it is always better to
ignore the other person rather than
Backstabbing and criticism spoil
relationship among people. If you
have a problem with someone, it
is always better to discuss with
him/her face to face rather than
cribbing, complaining and dis-
cussing with the whole world.
Bosses should know how to take
their team along.
Each and every employee must
have a say in company s major
Key players in relationship building
