REACH Approach to Developing Relationships

The person …

Shows respect

Not checking your messages
Not invading your privacy
Treat you as an equal
Reply to messages
Not using conversation killers
Shows empathy

Cry together with you
Mirroring your emotions
Verbal expression; paraphrasing what you have said
Is accepting

Don't ignore or shoot down suggestions

Is caring

Gain joy by helping others
Put others’ needs in front of oneself
Still help you without bearing grudges; forgiving

Is honest

Don't lie
Open; don’t hide the truth
Don’t talk behind people’s back

 While we may not be able to REACH everyone, we must at least try to practise the above behaviours to the ones closest to us, or those whom we wish to develop good relationships with =)
