Relationships of all kinds : friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances are not unidirectional. They are a collaboration where everyone gives and receives.
In meaningful relationships we provide value to what others give to us, time, effort, experiences.
Relationships are the way two or more people interact with each other and they are a MIRROR.
A mirror where we see ourselves as we actually are.
It requires effort and responsibility to make relationships work. Empathy, resilience and acceptance make relationships better. Relationships are not static. They are a work in progress and have to be nourished and cultivated every day.
We learn so much from the people around us.
We expand our knowledge through exchanges with friends, family, and colleagues.
RealContacts helps to create awareness of how important our relationships are for our growth and development.
Face-to-face meetings allow us to communicate and gain ‘tacit knowledge’.
Tacit knowledge is subtle and essential to our personal and professional growth.
RealContacts encourages us to meet our contacts face to face.
What’s the difference between publishing a post or a tweet and telling a story to a friend over coffee? Public posts are an excellent way to let people know about something, but it’s impersonal and doesn’t take into account each of your friends’ individual communication styles. One-to-one communication encourages the intimacy and tacit knowledge we need to learn and grow. RealContacts has features designed to encourage one-to -one meetings.
Had a boring conversation recently? Why was it boring? Likely because the conversation was superficial and didn’t allow an opportunity to reveal our true selves. Nothing in the conversation really piqued our curiosity. So why not focus on the relationships that add the most value to our lives and cultivate them? RealContacts has functions that can guide us to select the relationships that are most important to us.
We believe that our relationships must be nurtured with attention, care, dedication and openness.
How healthy are our relationships?
RealContacts urges us to take care of our relationships on a regular basis and provides suggestions for actions we can take to make our relationships thrive.
Having a meeting?
Whether the meeting is with friends or business associates, it’s well worth it to think ahead on how we can make our meetings meaningful and interesting.
Use RealContacts to focus your energy and attention on the meeting.
After the meeting, RealContacts guides us to understand what happened during the meeting and how we can add quality to future meetings.
Perceptions and feedback from real life connections are an opportunity to see a true mirror of ourselves.
From this honest feedback we can take action where needed to improve our behavior and our relationships.
RealContacts facilitates this feedback process.
