Relationship-centered describes a person whose relationships with others are integral to his or her life. However, one cannot be such a person without being a strong individual.
One of the great mysteries of life is that it takes a strength, self-knowledge, and integrity to be a person who can enter well into and nurture relationships. This assumes that an individual has the room (psychologically, spiritually) within oneself for the other. This takes integrity and humility.
Relationship-centered leaders recognize that organizations do not achieve outcomes, but that people do. They do it by building relationships–one person at a time. They see the individual and understand that the organization is a community of relationships.
