In yacht races and small enterprises close working relationships must be maintained.
When the going is tough you can’t afford bad relationships.
Big companies and governments often have inefficiencies and bad working relationships, something a small enterprise can ill afford. They waste time, have unpredictable approaches and suffer ineffective execution. This gives small enterprises a wonderful opportunity to create a competitive advantage.
Most of the success of a small enterprise will depend on the ability to communicate well, foster mutually beneficial relationships, and earn the respect and loyalty of bosses, co-workers, clients, and customers. In other words, success is about interpersonal skills and behaviours that create the working environment in which small enterprises survive and thrive.
Sometimes, you cannot choose who you work with. Many will be people you share a lot of time with, sometimes more than even your spouse. It is important therefore to manage the relationship accordingly, so you can build a happier, healthier and fun work environment.
If you encourage people to nurture relationships your enterprise will thrive and it will become a great working environment where productivity is always constantly high. Continue to learn more about how to build upon your interpersonal skills

Encouraging good relationships by making some small changes in your behaviour can have a ripple effect.
Relationships are critical when it comes to building a great organisation and for people to find satisfaction in their work.
Do you have the skills that enable you to influence others to want to work with you rather than against you? Learn how to develop positive work relationships, by being willing to listen, communicate openly, and respect yourself and the other people you work with.

I have observed many times, small changes that can make a huge difference in the relationships in a business and in their community. You can improve your work relationships both at home and in the workplace if you take the initiative and try some new strategies.
People who sit back and wait for someone else to improve relationships will generally sit there for a long time, continuing to put up with the problem. I have known a number of people for more than a decade, done lots things for them and they still let me down. The lesson to learn is not to be distrustful of others but to become more aware of the quality of the relationship.
You might know a lot of people but as someone once said to me. “You will be a lucky person if you have 10 true friends when you die”.
You don’t have to have it all figured out before you start moving forward.
