What is a relationship manager?
I think we are all relationship managers. That is, we all manage different relationships throughout our lives.
In what ways are you a relationship manager?
One of the most important relationships I manage is that with my 18-year-old son, Aaron, who will be managing new relationships at University of Edinburgh this fall.
Yesterday, Aaron and I met with somebody who is officially a relationship manager.
Jose, who works for our local bank, managed to improve Aaron’s relationship with money by managing to approve him for a credit card. Aaron and I told Jose we really appreciated the way he managed our financial relationships.
After we managed our new relationship with Jose, Aaron wanted to manage his relationship to some lines from a Shakespeare play he’s appearing in soon, so we rehearsed a scene where Prince Hal is trying to manage his relationship with his father, King Henry IV. Aaron managed to memorize this line about Prince Hal managing two different relationships:
I will redeem all this on Percy’s head,And, in the closing of some glorious day,Be bold to tell you that I am your son..
Aaron, my bold son, is glorious at managing lines and also his relationship with his mother.
I shall now manage my relationship with my readers by sharing all the other photos I managed to take yesterday. Do any of them relate to relationship managers or management?
As a psychotherapist, I see relationship managers and relationship management everywhere, all the time. As a blogger this morning, I almost managed to choose two different titles from those relationship-manager pictures, above.
I wonder how I would have managed my relationship with this blog if I had chosen either of these alternate titles for today’s post:
Day 1214: Our Humble Beginnings
Day 1214: Muster Point
I actually managed my relationship with that second title by writing this introduction before I managed to choose today’s topic:
Do any of the people mustering here, at this point, know what a muster point is?
A muster point is a pre-determined spot that everyone is aware of.
Will you manage your relationship with me by managing a comment in the muster point below this post?
My final blogging relationship management, for now, is to thank all who helped me create this post and you — of course! — for all the relationship managing and mustering you’re doing, today.
