Building Relationships: Workshop in February 2013
“Humanity is going to require a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive.”
- Albert Einstein
Over centuries and through varied methods of exploration, we have learned a lot and developed many theories about our essence and capacity as human beings. Much of what we have learned has been useful in moving us in the direction of using higher levels of intelligence.
Along the way, however, we have also been programmed with ideas of separation, isolation, independence, scarcity and competition. Often these have become the basis for our thinking regarding relationships.
Few of us would argue that we don’t always apply the greatest levels of intelligence in relationships. Few people would argue that our relationships can be difficult to negotiate. How do we maintain our independence of mind while encouraging others do the same? How do we care for ourselves and others?
When our sense of survival and well being become tied to these programmed ideas, we tend to think within those constraints as we navigate relationships at work and, at home with our loved ones. We cease to explore and utilize our greatest levels of intelligence as we accept these programmed ideas as our “thinking.”
Developing and nurturing our relationships ensures use of our and others greatest levels of intelligence
Relationships develop and evolve by design or by default.
Let us help you develop the skills to effectively negotiate both personal and workplace relationships and prevent a range of human experience and expression from becoming destructive conflict. Lets head things off before they go badly!
- Reaffirm the value and importance of healthy relationships in our lives.
- Build the framework for successful collaboration using a “leadership model,”and a “relationship building model.”
- Examine what is at the core of human dysfunction in our relationships.
- Learn how to remove yourself from the role of “adversary,” when people have strong feelings or needs you may not be able to meet.
- Explore the issues of caring and boundaries – caring for self and caring for others.
- Replace “gossip” and “case building” with proactive steps to anticipate individual and group needs.
- Use tried and proven methods and tools to support your good intentions.
- Avoid the resource drain that accompanies “perceived” conflict.
