    Key Points

    Show you care at a personal level.
    You can’t build a relationship that’s not personal.
    In order to care personally for someone, you have to bring your whole self, not just your “business” persona.
    Sometimes we get so focused on the work that we forget there’s actually a person doing the work.
    Begin by soliciting feedback, not by giving it.
    To get feedback, come up with a go-to question like “Is there anything I could do or stop doing that would make it easier to work with me?”
