Appreciative Relationships-The “Built to Last” Relationship
Great relationships are built. Mediocre or failed relationships are described by participants as something they have rather than something in which they invest and co-create.
Good relationships have to be consciously maintained; they do not just happen.
People nowadays expect a new type and quality of relationship and yet have no clear definition of what that would be, or what values or approaches are needed in order to create such relationships.
In order to build an intimate relationship the couple needs to know what exactly it is that they are building. This means knowing what type of culture they wish to have in their relationship, what will be expressed through that culture and what disciplines and practices will support those values.
Relationships need to be created in ways that allow both participants to feel equally at home in the relationship, to feel that their voices count equally in the relationship.
