To build and maintain a successful relationship with your team, a leader’s ability to make everyone on their team feel important is the key. How can you build a relationship with your team? According to Susan Heathfield, pay attention to people using common courtesy. Say good morning. Say thank you. Ask people how their weekend turned out. Ask whether Rebecca won her soccer match. Ask if John is feeling better. Ask how you are dealing with the pandemic, how’re the kids. Practicing simple courtesy will help you build a strong relationship with your team. When you show your team that you genuinely care about them professionally and personally, they are more likely to become your most loyal people, who will go over and beyond their call of duty to help their organization achieve its purpose.
