Why Team Leaders Encourage Magnetic Relationship

A common mistake is to consider work as impersonal endeavor. Work is interpersonal. Cultivate a culture where your members value good relationships.

Encourage magnetic relationships.

When members have magnetic relationships, they are attracted towards helping each other. They know precisely that you keep on standing as long as you are united with each other.

How do you know that you have magnetic relationships in your team? You do when you experience these:
– You trust each other.
– You have mutual respect
– You accept each other’s differences.
– You take action to resolve conflict constructively.
– You accept of each others roles as important.
– You keep “politics” to a minimum.
– You do not allow badmouthing/backstabing of each other.
– You have adequate interaction with each other.
– You are willing to try new things.
– You follow through on promises.
– You seek input and involvement in decision-making
– You rely and depend on each other.
– You focus on issues and opportunities, not on personalities and positions.
– You recognize mutual interest.
– You are willing to generate options other than your favorite.
– You act with a sense of fairness.
– You give importance to long-term relationships.
– You have empathy for each other.
– You value the opinions of each other.
– You strive to build commitment rather than compliance.

Choose to highlight what’s best from each member.

Accept that each has flaws — and choose to build on each other’s strengths. You complete each other.

You can build teams better.
