Relationship Intelligence: Where Did You Learn How to Get Along With People?

Unfortunately, we don’t go to school to study how to have good relationships. Relationship skills, when it comes to work, family, and social relationships, develop differently depending on how and where you grew up. So, where did you get your information on how to get along with people?

If you were lucky enough to be born into a family where your parents got along well and treated each other with kindness, mutual understanding, and in a loving manner, then you may have learned similar skills for use in your intimate relationships. Similarly, if important people close to you were successful in their business relationships, you may have gleaned some useful information that you are now using  to get along with and manage the people you work with. But what if you weren’t quite so lucky?

Even if you had lots of healthy and positive role models that served as the foundation for your relationship skills, you can still learn more about how to relate better, communicate more effectively,  and get more satisfaction from the relationships you have. We all can use some help in the relationship department, right?

That’s where a coach comes in. An experienced coach has plenty of wisdom and expertise in the relationship department. They can guide you and teach you skills and techniques that can be used to help you to have more successful and enjoyable work, family, and social relationships.
