In a leadership role it is important to make building positive relationships with the people you work with a priority. An established collegial relationship ensures support in good and bad times. Solid collegial relationships can build an environment of respect and collaboration in any workplace and in the broader community.
A collegial relationship brings balance to work life through sharing knowledge and understanding. These important relationships are built on mutual respect and trust. A good leader builds mutual relationships that are intuitive and thoughtful, observant and compassionate and honest and ethical. Your collegial relationships will bring you strength and inspire your creativity.
Strive to find and to participate in good collegial relationships. Treat your colleagues as you would like them to treat you.
