"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." - Henry Ford Connections, Networking, Team Work, Friends ... many more names/labels and ways come to mind when we think of relationships. What's common amongst all these is a similarity between the people and a state of being related in one or more ways.
One of my colleagues once told me that when we communicate it is important that we focus more on expressing our thoughts clearly rather than simply trying to impress. Over the years my own experience suggests this is true - be it at work at home. Communication is the next big key to success.
