Positive working relationships have a huge impact on your career. Building connections can strengthen your network and help you climb the corporate ladder. Barbie Adler, founder of Selective Search, a matchmaking service, gives advice on how to have successful relationships with your coworkers.  


When starting any relationship, it’s important to know what you’re looking for. Consider your communication style and how you can support others. Show commitment by turning your words into action.  

Don’t let job titles limit action 

Even if you aren’t in a senior position at work, it doesn’t mean you should avoid taking the lead. You don’t have to step on your coworkers’ toes in order to maximize your fullest potential within the limits of your job description.  

Nix your bad habits 

Many relationships struggle due to a never-ending cycle of bad habits. Make sure you nip those in the bud before approaching a working relationship. If you have a short temper, work on emotional regulation. If you’re chronically late to meetings, challenge yourself to arrive early. You can’t change overnight, but identifying patterns is a good start, writes Natasha Piñon.
