Your happiness and your success depend on your working relationships The people you manage. How well you work with your boss. The way collaboration happens with colleagues and peers. How you connect with important prospects and key clients. But the hard truth is this: most of us leave the health and fate of these relationships to chance. We say “Hi,” exchange pleasantries … and hope for the best. But every relationship becomes suboptimal at some point, whether it’s a good one that goes off the rails or one that was poor from the start. Mostly we are resigned to the fact that this is what happens: relationships always get a little broken, or a little stale, or a little worse. C’est la vie, c’est la guerre. Carry on. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Every working relationship can be better. This book shows you how to build the best possible relationship. One conversation. Five questions. Detailed guidance on how to prepare and set the relationship up for success. Key insights on how to maintain the relationship so that it will continue to thrive.
