While the treatment of yourself, and of others can seem tricky at times, there are some trick-less ways to care for you...and for them as you develop relationships! Some of those approaches include:
T - Talking in terms of what interests that person first...to connect, be sincere, and to create collaboration, and then talk about your goals and desires
R - Respond instead of reacting to other people's ideas and actions by stopping, thinking, and considering other's perspective, and then sharing in a responsible, professional manner
I - Include people who are interested, and possibly not often included, or many not have been considered, since this will grow a base of input and gain additional insights through respecting their views/experience
C - Clearly explain expectations and get buy-in by asking for questions, concerns, ideas and options...as well as how you can assist in getting to those expectations
K - Key in on asking for, listening to, and providing sincere feedback on what is going well, and what can be improved personally and professionally
Treating people well through talking, responding, including, clarifying, and keying in on feedback is less tricky, and more trick-less, as it creates an environment of engagement and trust...to establish, create and/or grow relationships!
