Relationships must always be built on shared values, authenticity, transparency, and trust.
Relationships must always be built on shared values, authenticity, transparency, and trust. Built upon these principles relationships add more zest to life than nearly any other category of life.
Each category of relationship calls for its own unique philosophy and approach.
Intimate relationships based on gratitude, shared meaning, vulnerability, and solid set of relationship values that a couple can come to in both times of bliss and hardship.
In mentor relationships it is about listening, and being willing to do the work that is required.
Wes believes that when working with mentors it is imperative to do what they suggest before asking for more of their time. Always show that you have processed and digested their experience, It is never necessary to blindly agree, but only to provide a furthering of relationships through thoughtful communication.
In personal and professional relationship Wes encourages finding people with shared values who are walking a similar path. Going back to the much used but wise “you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with,” setting intention, and a framework for professional and personal relationships is critical.
