History is repeated with "I win - you win" relationships built on a spirit of sacrifice and trust. Climbing Everest was a challenge many took and failed before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit in 1953. Of all the factors that contributed to their success, one factor that enormously contributed to their success is the bond or trust they shared between each other and the expedition team that all worked together for this success. They strongly depended on each other to tackle this almost impossible task. This is human relations.

Businesses that become successful are the ones that encourage good working relationship amongst their staff and those that they do business with. Successful interpersonal relationships cultivated with different set of people can work wonders in business as well in personal lives. Leaders of business capitalize on this fact to build their empires by investing on human relations.

All sincere and meaning full human relations are built around three cardinal principles of Truth, Integrity and Commitment. The three principle are listed and described below.

Three Cardinal Principals of Human Relationships

Cardinal Principe 1: Truth

Truth simply means being honest with what you say and do to yourself or to other people you do business with or even in your personal life. We have to keep the truth among our life’s top values and share it with any communication partner because – firstly, by not telling it, we could create misunderstanding and secondly, after one lie easily comes another one. It hurts less to know the truth directly then to have it concealed for a longer time until the other party finds it out for himself. Not telling truth leads to loss of trust and loss of business.

Cardinal Principle 2: Integrity

Integrity in generally refers to the inner sense of wholeness and is derived from human qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. Do you maintain a consistent professional character when dealing with other business partners or your mood swings wildly according to the environment or situations that arise? We are judged according to the values, beliefs and principles to hold and how consistently and honestly we hold those values.

Commitment and determination

Cardinal Principlal 3: Commitment

This principal is self explanatory. The worse thing that can happen in a business is dealing with a partner who agrees to do something and then never does it. In business, we expect win-win situation. So as in personal relationship. If you can't be committed in business or in your personal relationship, then you shouldn't be expecting any thing good to come out of it. Commitment yields results and results bring satisfaction.

We finish by quoting Peter Drucker

"No organization can depend on genius..it is the test of an organization to make ordinary human beings perform better than they seem capable of, to bring out whatever strength exists in its members and use each man's strength to help other members perform well...Human relations that are not grounded on satisfaction of good performance in work are actually poor human relationships"

Same can be said about personal relationships. No pain. No gain.

      Going back to basics in all we do make wonders. Because we build everything from basics by all means we have to go back to the basics if needed to
