Keeping it real in your conversations
Ever felt like the person connecting/re-connecting with you has an agenda? That gut feeling is usually right. We can all fall into the trap of building convenient relationships that suit ourselves more than the people we serve.
I have to consistent check myself and my interactions to ensure I am being honest with my communications.
With every interaction I instigate, I need to ask myself the following questions:
- Why am I connecting with this person
- Am I being honest up-front
- What was my last interaction with them
- Have I neglected the relationship
