Elements of a Successful Relationship
This section will briefly introduce five foundational elements and present how they form long-term, successful relationships. These elements include:
• mutual trust
• open and truthful communication
• measurable mutual goals
• organizational support
• commitment to mutual gain
Mutual trust: Not all building blocks are created equally - the most important of the five foundational elements is mutual trust.
As previously mentioned, trust is the confidence one party has in another to perform an action as agreed. In order for a partnership to be successful, trust must be mutual.
Organizational support: The support of employees throughout the organization is another key element in creating successful relationships.
The organization as a whole, from front line members to local and corporate offices, must support the idea of a partnership. Structure and culture are the underlying roots that create organizational support.
Commitment to mutual gain: The next building block in the foundation of successful relationships relates to the level of commitment each partner has in creating mutual gain.
Simply put, partners look out for one another and do not take advantage of each other. If one party has more resources or more efficient operating procedures than the other, this should not impact the relationship.
Measurable, mutual goals: A key element necessary for relationships to be successful is having both parties share measurable, mutual goals.
Mutual goals allow parties to pool together company resources and strengths. In order to ensure goals are being met, they must be measurable and quantifiable.
Open and truthful communication: An additional element in building long-term, successful, relationships is establishing open and truthful communication lines.
Parties that communicate openly and truthfully have a better understanding of each others’ visions, missions and goals in the relationship.
