Relationship Skills 


“Relationships are at the heart of schooling.”—Mark Twain

“Relationship skills” is the ability to build positive relationships by demonstrating cultural humility, practicing teamwork and collaborative problem-solving, resolving conflicts constructively, approaching relationships with positive presuppositions, resisting negative social pressure and stereotypes and standing up for the rights of others.

There is a myriad of benefits to building positive relationships skills. They make us feel connected, help us build and maintain meaningful connections across race, culture, age, and distance; support one another during collective grief and struggle; and collaboratively find solutions to new obstacles.
