A Relationship Is a “Feeling Thing” That Exists between Two People Who Associate with Each Other

You can’t see, taste, smell, or touch a relationship; you can only feel it in a psychological sense. Job relationships are usually different from social relationships. Job relationships exist only because you selected a certain company and were assigned to work with certain people in a specific department. In other words, in your social life you have a choice; on the job you do not. Nevertheless, working relationships are extremely important to you and your future because they will have a strong influence on your personality and personal productivity.

Working relationships of this nature are fascinating to study. For example, one interesting characteristic is that two persons cannot meet regularly on the job or work in the same general areas without having a relationship. So the first thing to learn about working relationships is, whether you like it or not, a relationship will exist between you and every employee or supervisor with whom you have regular contact. While you need not work next to this person, speak to this person, nor even have a desire to know this person, a relationship will still exist.
