Following his previous article, https://tifwe.org/how-much-time-should-i-spend-developing-relationships-at-work/, Russell Gehrlein writes from his experience in the military about investing time engaging with work colleagues. His insightful and godly approach offers practical ways for everyone seeking to build relationships.
"Investing in the talents, potential, and personal growth of the individuals on your team and building relationships among your team members will definitely have some heavy up-front costs. It does take time to stop looking at emails, stop answering the phone, or stop planning a special event to close the door to get some one-on-one time with members of your team. You may have to find a way to be willing to make yourself vulnerable in group settings to share some of your own weaknesses, which shows genuine humility to your team and encourages them to do the same."
