    • What do you know about good work relationships?

    • Responsibility
      Foundation of interdependence
      Unless and until you assume full responsibility for yourself, you force others to assume responsibility for you
      Performance
      Master your current job
      Continuously improve how that job is done
      Caring
    • Expectations
      Framework of interdependence
      Know what’s expected of you
      Share your expectations of others with them
      Make this a team activity
      Promise to deliver
    • Accountability
      Binding strength of interdependence
      Two principles
      Always starts with you: performance, caring, expectations, encourage and enable others
      When you look at others, look for solutions rather than blame
      Don’t look the other way when it matters
    • Learning
      Fulfillment of interdependence
      Core performance technology
      If you stop learning and growing, you will increasingly become either a burden or a stranger to others at work
    • Application #2 – REAL Relationship
      Who is the most interdependent person you know at work? How does this person’s interdependence affect others at work?
      Are you dependent, independent, or interdependent in your work relationships? How does your style of relating affect others at work?
      Are you really learning and growing at work? Name one thing you are doing better now than 3 months ago.
