Adding Value to Others

Monish Subherwal Relationships Leave a Comment

Just like a real bank account, one can deposit into someone else’s Emotional Bank Account by:

  • Being courteous
  • Showing kindness
  • Being honest
  • Being vulnerable
  • Making others laugh
  • Keeping commitments
  • Delivering high quality work
  • etc.

Notice, some of these deposits can be soft skills, like being courteous, and others could be more hard skills based – like delivering high quality designs.  Either way, anything that adds values to another person’s life or wellbeing can be said to be a deposit, and can help build more trust.

When a large amount of deposits have been made, the Emotional Bank Account is high and there is a high level of trust in your relationship.
