Ways We Damage Relationships At Work
The good news? We can change and draw strength from others in ways that encourages them to seek us out rather than avoiding us. By recognizing these very human reactions we can choose to pause, step back and see the larger perspective: how to care for the “us” in the situation rather than being preoccupied, only thinking of “me.” That “us” stance may enable you to:
• Avoid deepening a rut of self-destructive behavior when similar situations recur.
• Bring out the better side in the others.
• Attract mutually-supportive relationships.
Another benefit of cultivating this resilient mind-set is that you can broaden rather than narrow “your thought-action activity towards a specific action of promoting survival.”
