6 Confirmed Keys Of Building A Strong Relationship

By Benson Chidiebere → Wednesday, 6 September 2017

People are not born with natural abilities to develop and build great relationships with others. These are skills like any other that can be learned and mastered if one recognizes the need and take the time and effort to develop them. We can all become better relationship builders by clearing our minds and practicing a few basic necessary acts: Below are the listed keys to building a strong relationship.

BECOME A GREAT LISTENER

Every one has the basic desire to be heard and understood. Unfortunately few of us are taught how to be great listeners. Most people are too busy thinking of what they want to say next to really listen to what the other person is saying. When you notice yourself doing this, take a breath and correct your pattern by listening well. We naturally bond with people who really listen, hear us, and that we’d want to spend time with.

ASK THE RIGHT QUESTION

The best way to let people know that we hear them is to make sure that we first understand what they are saying. To do this we dig deeper and ask questions. We repeat back to them what they said in our own words to make sure what we heard makes sense to us. One possible way of making this is to say, “What I heard you say was...” When other senses that we are making a sincere attempt to understand them, they tend to open up and share more with us. This deepens the relationship and places us in the category of people they want to seek out and talk to.


REMEMBER THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO OTHERS

There is no more beautiful sound of our own name. Remember people’s names are the first step to relationship building, and remembering other important aspects about them continues the building process. They will tell us what is important in their lives, all we need to do is listening and pay attention. When they are speaking about a family member, an event, or a hobby and their faces light up, remember everything about them, just focus on their names and one important piece of information.


BE CONSISTENT AND MANAGE EMOTIONS

People whose mood swings from hot to cold have a difficult time creating meaningful relationships. Regardless of how we are feeling, we need to be able to temporarily put those feelings aside to fully listen and engage others that are important in our lives. If we are going through a period where we are experiencing strong emotions that keep us from being fully present with the other person, we are better off letting this individual know what is going on for us rather than pretending to listen. They will appreciate our honesty and openness.

BE OPEN AND SHARE WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT

We all know people who tell us their whole life story in them first five minute of meeting us, totally oblivious to the fact that we likely have absolutely no interest in hearing it. To build strong relationships we need to be able to pace ourselves and share when it’s appropriate and at a level that is consistent with the depth of the relationship.

BE GENUINE, CONFIDENT, HUMBLE, TRUSTWORTHY, POSITIVE AND FUN

People who build great relationships, feels good about who they are and always look for the positive in their world. They genuinely want the best for others and want to see them succeed. The energy of people who are comfortable in their own skin, upbeat, and positive creates an atmosphere where we feel good, want to be around, and want to spend time with them. They don’t gossip about others and keep what we tell them in confidence. Being self-confident, they don’t feel the need to draw attention to themselves. They always have time for the significant others in their lives. They are life-long learners who are always open to and looking for opportunities for self-improvement.

CONCLUSION

The truth of the whole matter still remains that there is always some relevant guiding principles and noms which guides every relationship. Building a strong relation is not a magic or something that seem to be impossible.

Most of the folks here in my local circumstance actually thinks that relationships can never be perfect. They are still living with an ignorant mentality that there must be a cheating partner between the parties. But with this tip or perhaps tips, i hope you hopefully make your relationship a perfect one. thanks.
