In your opinion, why is it important to develop relationships with coworkers?
Example #1
"I value my relationships with my coworkers because we support each other and make each other laugh when the work environment becomes intense. I have a coworker that I eat lunch with every day. We've helped each other out by simply listening to what's going on in each other's lives. It's nice to have colleagues who understand you on a personal level."
Example #2
"People are the bread and butter of any organization. Our ability to work well together determines our success. Therefore, it is critical to create great working relationships."
Example #3
"As a manager who runs a team of 15 people, I fully understand that coworkers can make or break you if you have to depend on their work to do yours. It is always best to have friendly working relationships with them."
Example #4
"To accomplish anything in a job, you need your team members. They are who you rely on to get a project done, to call in when you need advice, and to help pick up the slack when you're in a pinch. If you don't have a good rapport with your co-workers, you won't be able to do any of those things, and therefore, you cannot be as effective at your job."
Example #5
"You spend more times with your coworkers than anyone else! If you don't get along, you are in for a very long week. I get along with my coworkers by being courteous, helpful, and respectful of their time. I show up to my shift when expected, bring them coffee after my lunch break, or assist with product questions when they come up."
Example #6
"Culture is an important aspect of any organization. I've had toxic workplace cultures where it feels like high school, and I've had pleasant collaborative ones also. It's essential to me to like at least some of the people I work with, so I make a point to grab a coffee, lunch, or a drink with the ones who seem like-minded."
Example #7
"To get anything done, you need to have a good relationship with your teammates. For me in particular, I know that I have to have a strong relationship as much as possible with the classroom teachers since I conduct my lessons in their classrooms. I need to make sure that we have a mutually respectful relationship."
