Inquiring minds would like to know:

Have you ever been involved in a break-up?
Why did the break-up occur?
Whose fault was it?
Were you the person who initiated the break-up or where you the victim of the break-up?

Break-ups (or divorces) occur when one or two parties do not honor the terms of agreement. An agreement can be ORAL OR WRITTEN. The success of any relationship (personal or professional) is determined on the transfer, acceptance and understanding of clear-cut expectations that are agreed upon by the parties (people, places or things) involved in the relationship.

Do you understand the terms of agreement with who or what you are in relationship with?

Food for thought: People involved in PRODUCTIVE RELATIONSHIPS give more concern to the person, place or thing they are in the relationship with than they do themselves.

Questions to self:

1. Why are we discussing relationships and breaking-up?
2. How does this relate to having a job?
3. How doe this relate to a having a career?

At times, we find difficulties adjusting to our workplace when we are not fully aware of the terms of agreement. If we are not fully aware, then we don’t possess the ability to agree. If we don’t possess the ability to agree then we can’t align ourselves with the expectations agreed upon in the beginning of the relationship. The result is a break-up (or divorce).

Extra food for thought: There are times when we take our workplaces for granted, and when this occurs the result is ABUSE.

There is hope…

When we become fully aware of the terms of agreement, we can agree and align with the expectations agreed upon in the beginning of the relationship.
