Build Better Relationships No Matter Where You Are!
Jun 25, 2021
In a discussion with DISCsimple founder, Sarah Owen, on the impact of relationships within the workplace, we found that it is the people that make the difference. If, for example, you work in a small, cramped office space, dim lightning, not many supplies, but your team were engaging, encouraging and friendly people you enjoyed being around, then you are more likely to love what you do and be more productive within the workplace. If you have a huge office with the latest technology, then it may look like you are successful, however, without a strong relationship with those around you, you might end up resenting your job and be less motivated to work hard.

For business leaders, there is a lot to be said about investing in your people, creating a culture where every team member feels valued and that their opinion matters. Building a working relationship and a cohesive team that can contribute, creates success. This success and greatness will stem from the relationships between you and your team, building an understanding of the people you work with will help to create a positive working environment. This will then lead to more productivity and more success down the line.

A business is only as good as the relationships its people have with each other and other people interacting with your organisation. If these relationships are not there, then other aspirations for greatness can slip away. A successful business is not built by an individual, it is all the pieces of the puzzle, every cog in the wheel, everybody working together as a unit that drives success. Ensuring you are putting those pieces together by building the strong foundations for relationships between your people will help you on your way to greatness.

To know more about how to understand your team and build those great relationships, take a look at our DISClive events where you can see the different styles and their preferred ways of working. You can also take the assessment on our interactive learning platform, Catalyst, to learn more about your own behaviours and those of your team.
