Whether you are trying to build a personal or professional relationship, the following tips will help you build interpersonal bridges.

Step 1: Listen
Take time to listen to the other person. Do not attempt to dominate every conversation.

Don't insist on winning every argument or on always having the last word.

Step 2: Forgive
Be willing to overlook faults in the other person.

Remember that you, too, have faults.

Step 3: Seek out mutual benefits
Don't approach the relationship as a source of gain for only yourself; instead, seek out mutual benefits.

Step 4: Look for common ground
Seek out common ground. This will establish mutual expectations.

Step 5: Use humor
Use humor to smooth over rough moments in the relationship.

Remember that life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.

Step 6: Stay spontaneous
Keep the relationship spontaneous. Don't let the monotony of life's day-to-day challenges bring you down. Instead, try something new! Enjoy your relationships!
