Humans are naturally sociable; they enjoy the company of others and want positive interactions and meaningful friendships. Good relationships are important for our wellbeing and mental health, which means when our relationships suffer, our health and happiness is also affected.
In the workplace, having good relationships with colleagues and others in work is valuable for wellbeing and career development. There is a sense of freedom to having good relationships, rather than spending time and energy overcoming relationship issues, you are able to focus on your work and enjoy the time you spend there.
Good relationships don’t come automatically. They require a great deal of energy, time and hard work and social skills to stay strong and last. Sometimes these relationships break down, leaving us feeling lonely, disappointed and unsure of ourselves.
