A little-known secret to career success

Or, why interpersonal skills are the most important thing for your career

Aug 6, 2023

Have you ever wondered why some individuals rise effortlessly through the ranks and assume roles with increasing responsibilities, while others struggle to feel seen, heard, or valued, and meander in their careers?

At Roar, we spent a lot of time thinking about this difference.

Assuming similar levels of competence and ambition, we believe that building strong relationships is the key to unlocking your true potential in the workplace.

Let us explain:

It's not just about being capable; it's about being recognized as capable.

Relationships include both: relationships with trustworthy individuals around us and our own relationship with ourselves.

If we are secure in our relationship with others, we find it easy to:

  • build trust,
  • handle disagreements,
  • influence and persuade and so on.

If we are insecure, our actions fail to have an impact on others.

Similarly, if we are secure with ourselves, we find it easy to

  • trust our journey,
  • be secure,
  • seek out other secure people to grow with, and
  • join environments that are nurturing

Without a secure relationship with ourselves, however, we may:

  • be fiercely independent and avoid asking for help
  • find it hard to relax and trust our journey
  • not be genuinely happy about the success of others, or
  • find ourselves repeatedly in environments that fail to see or value us

What comes in the way of building secure relationships?

For some, it may be a lack of awareness regarding interpersonal skills such as effective communication, and conflict management. Others may distrust relationships due to challenging childhood experiences, resulting in poor self-awareness and self-regulation.

That's why we created Roar.
