Communication and relationships are intimately linked. The quality of our communication determines the quality of our relationships.
Difficulties in communication (misunderstandings, misinterpretations, confusion) lead to difficulties in relationships (tensions, disagreements, conflicts).
Paying attention to the way we communicate creates closer and higher quality relationships.
Communication techniques work when there is a paradigm shift from a competitive to a collaborative perspective of relationships.
If there's one thing we all value, it's a trusting relationship that is free and powerful: a relationship where both people can show their authenticity and are able to understand each other at a very deep level.
Understanding the basic mechanisms that influence our interpersonal relationships and putting them into practice is a life lesson we should all learn at school.
Relationships cool off and become distant when one or both parties do not take into account something that is truly important to the other. The internal or external struggle shows up as: arguments, blame, judgments, pain, sadness, anger or rage. That makes communication among the parties even more challenging and could snowball into more misunderstandings and distance.
