  • Expressing trust and compassion openly in both words and behaviours

  • Creating psychological safety – crucial for wellbeing and high performance


We are social beings. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment in our lives when we do not benefit from other people’s activities.  For this reason, it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others. Emotionally smart people know that relationships are built on reciprocity – the art of give and take and listening deeply and actively to others.

Cultivating meaningful, close relationships with others adds to the richness of life and provides valuable support in times of need.  For example, the support of others is known to be a key ingredient in helping people cope with stress or anxiety and be resilient in the face of adversity. Developing our interpersonal relationship and conversation skills leads to effective collaboration in teams, providing the conditions to get what you want and give to others what they need.
