Ep. 27 Relationships That Work At Work The Unlock Lab

    • Careers

In this episode, I reflect on my recent speaking engagement in California, and the impact that my note of gratitude had for the conference organizer, my friend, Sanjiv. I share this story to make a point on the importance and impact of nurturing connections that we value over time. In the age of AI, this episode is all about remembering that the hardest things we do at work revolve around relationships. I share personal insights on turning challenges into opportunities for deeper understanding and collaboration. Tune in for practical tips on fostering meaningful connections at work and navigating strained relationships with openness and curiosity.



Key topics include:


The importance of building relationships beyond the immediate work context.

Tips on how to handle difficult relationships and conversations.

Investing time in relationships versus focusing solely on productivity.

Impactful gratitude goes beyond a simple 'thank you'

Avoiding resentment towards coworkers in the summer season




Quotables:

(06.07) "How often do we actually show gratitude to those that we work with, to those that we partner with? How often do we really sit back and say, it matters that you're in my life, it's meaningful. You make my life better, you make this environment better."



(08:14) "We are so time pressed and so scarcity minded when it comes to time, especially with work. We're all overworked and there's so much to do, and we keep getting more and more piled on top of us that we forget that it's a choice for us to put the human connection first."



(14:31) "There's ways to find out what can work without doing all the heavy lifting. But also, I always recommend deep reflection and asking yourself the question about what's going on. How are you showing up? Are you showing up in the way that you want to? Are you showing up as the best version of yourself? Are you showing up triggered and bringing old baggage with you? Or are you showing up being present in the moment and open to what's possible for the future of that relationship or that dynamic?"



(17:56) "We get to experiment with new ways of being, with new ways of approaching relationships and see what's possible with the change."
