Building strong relationships in the work place is very important. Many people thought that the workplace is just a place for work and nothing else. They thought that everything about work should be done in the office, and only when there is time after work, then relationships come into place. This is soooooo wrong!
I used to be like this person. But something happened and changed my thinking.
I went for a team building program in Singapore and was trained by a really good trainer. He facilitated the whole program well and opened up many relationships with my colleagues. Mind you, I hardly talk to my colleagues, because to me, they are just people I go for work. They are not really my friends. Alright ‘friends’ in work. That’s all.
However, in the program, the trainer emphasize how important healthy relationships is in the workplace. Good relationships with people reduces friction, and makes things easier to do. Anything that is complex, and be solved by a good friend and good help. With someone who is on good terms with you, will also make you feel happier and better at work.
After this program, I realized how much I have been missing in my workplace. My other colleagues are always getting well with one another, but for me, I’m always alone. Once work has ended, I just pack up and leave for home. Everything is the same tomorrow, the next day.
Until now, then I know how great it is to have healthy and strong relationships.
I’m feeling so happy at work right now. I’m like smiling to work everyday, because I know I have friends at work. Even when my work has ended, and I’m leaving the office late, I have friends who will buy dinner for me, or even wait for me to end work and go back together. This feeling is too awesome.
