understanding about another person takes time. A good example would be the development of a friendship. Think of your best friend. This is probably one of the most productive impersonal relationships that exist for you. Now go back from the time you met up until now. How did you get to become such best friends? As you think through the process you find those things that lead you to become best friends are the some of the same things that are required to build and interpersonal relationship. I think the depth or even mere existence of an interpersonal relationship hinges on disclosure and feedback. Let's talk about the importance of disclosure and feedback in a quality interpersonal relationship. First of all let me give credit where credit is do. My ideas of disclosure and

feedback come from the self-disclosure model developed by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham. The model has become know and Johari's window. The premise of the model is that the more we disclose about ourselves and get feedback the more we learn about ourselves and the more others learn about us. I believe there is a direct tie between this theory and how a quality interpersonal relationship is achieved. When I met the person who is now my best friend, I started the relationship with a casual hello, like most people do. As time passed, I found reasons to disclose things about me. Well guess what happen; as I started to disclose things about me he also shared things about him. As more time passed, we started to give feedback to each other about the characteristics and behaviors of

each other. The longer relationship lasted and the more we disclosed the more we begin to trust each other. The more trust the more disclosure and feedback. This continued until we've developed an inseparable friendship and a top quality interpersonal relationship. So you can see it doesn't happen over night and it takes time and risk to build an interpersonal relationship. The risk comes in when we open ourselves up and share some the personal things that could be used to damage us emotionally. Although a quality interpersonal relationship is difficult to develop it more than worth it in every walks of life, personal and professional life. My organization is responsible developing curriculum for supervisory and management courses. Our job requires the most effective

communication skills that we could possibly use. Our customers depend on our communication skills. To give our customer a quality product requires a lot of interaction between those of use in the organization. The very nature of our business is very stressful because the job requires us to be somewhat creative. We have many think sessions just to figure out which direction to take. At time the emotions run rampant during these think sessions. Opinions are criticized and feelings are crushed. This is where a quality interpersonal relationship is important. I believe we have quality interpersonal relationships present in our organization. So instead of addressing what would happen if they were to occur, I’d address what happens due to the presents of the quality interpersonal

relationships. Our organization is an excellent place to work. The good Lord blessed me when He assigned me to the organization. The work is challenging but because of the interpersonal relationships you look forward to the challenge. I'm not saying I don't get frustrated or complain but when I do feel this way there’s someone there that will listen. The management shows a genuine concern for the workers. The lines of communication are open from top to bottom. There is known backstabbing and very few negative comments about the work ethics of other. Let me give you example. There are times that my boss and I have major disagreements to the point of raising our voice and getting frustrated to such a time we have to call timeout. You would think that this would cause hard feeling

between the two of us on standing bases, not so. The healing process is quick and we have one of the best bosses to subordinate relationships I've seen. It's not just like that with me but with all of us that have been assigned for over six months or so. I say six months or so because it takes that long to get use to each other. Another major plus is all of us are able to discuss what's on our minds with out fear of retribution. There's a lot of trust between each of us. All of these things are a result of the strong interpersonal relationships that exist in the organization. The Breakdown of Society Over the years, people have brought forward hundreds of proposals for the breakdown of society. One of the more popular, or perhaps notorious, depending on your point of view, has
