Towards Win-Win Associations

We are living in a fast paced competitive corporate world. We are short on time and temper. Today most relationships are through social media and cell phones. In these fast changing and dynamic times it becomes critical and pivotal to have deep meaning full win-win relationships.

These pointers will help you achieve Win-Win associations:

1. Complements:

Complement people on their looks , attire, attitude, nature and achievements. People are fond of kind words and niceties. Every time you complement someone you make a special emotional deposit in their minds and hearts. Say nice things and it will make all the difference.

2. Remembering Special Days:

If you remember people they will never forget you. Remembering Birthdays and Anniversaries will surely create a special feeling and fondness towards the one who wishes .Make notes of special days of friends and colleagues. Remember them, complement them and celebrate with them and within no time you would have great awesome relationships and more people to love and share with.

3. Remembering Names:

The sound of one’s name is sweet to everyone. Remember names through mental associations. People always feel good when you take their name and greet them. Taking and remembering names breeds familiarity and lead to lasting rich relationships.

4. Investing Time:

To get something you should give something. If you desire rich win-win relationships you will have to invest time into them. Take out some time to call up old friends and former associates. Complement them, share with them, respect them and they will reciprocate with the same for you.

5. Avoiding Politics:

Avoid gossip, back biting, cheating or groupism .These spoil the office atmosphere and create negativity. Keep aloof of gossip mongrels and make friends with positive focused and happy people.

6. Authentic interactions:

Be truthful and authentic. People get to know when you are lying or trying to be politically correct. People operate through feelings and they respond to feelings. So avoid that fake smile or that curt comment or below the belt sarcasm. Be authentic and truthful. Be nice and people will be nice to you.
