In This Episode, We Talk About
Managing Working Relationships and Healthy Friendships with the
Write Your Own Story Team
Autumn and Rachelle have been friends for almost three years. They met through a church home group and became fast friends. Through their friendship they discovered their passion for leading and inspiring women. This is how Write Your Own Story was born!
Write Your Own Story podcast serves to create a community of women that breaks barriers to embrace our differences and empowers them to find their individual strengths for a more happy fulfilled life. The ladies stopped by to chat about what it takes to build strong relationships with the women you work with and with your friends.
Approaching everything with a faith-centered approach
Already have that on the table and make it the expectation
Matt 18 Principle
Vow to have tough conversations for the sake of the relationship.
Keeps it healthy
Actually gives you a closer relationship than before
Honesty is Not Just Preferred; it’s Necessary!
Passive Aggressiveness or Silent Treatment is never an option during disagreements
Tell each other when you need time off or space
Be open about what’s going on in your life
Breeds Understanding & Grace
Allows the ability to pick one another up if needed.
Don’t just say “well, I’m just being honest” as an excuse to get your point across at the expense of someone else’s feelings.
There is always a tactful, respectful way to approach a problem or disagreement.
Play on Strengths
We each have defined roles based on what we are good at
Understand and recognize where our strengths do not lie
Making sure things fit into the overall mission
Whether that’s for a project, company directions, etc.
Not letting each other work out of defined roles or that will compromise family time, etc.
What do you need from me?
Defining the line of friendship & work
Respecting each other’s family or “off” time
Not letting it be about work all the time
Communicate when “friend” conversation is needed
Not letting work spill over into our community so that anyone feels left out.
“Shop” Talk when you aren’t involved is super awkward.
