Social work environments are a great place to build good relationships with other people and create a supportive work atmosphere. The perceptions and attitudes of oneself play an important role in building relationships. An individual will be able to appreciate themselves despite any difficulties or mistakes. Carl Rogers is a brilliant humanistic psychologist. He believed that people need an environment that promotes unconditional positivity in order to develop and grow positive relationships. McLeod (2014) defines unconditional positive respect as the ability to show love and acceptance to an individual, according to Rogers. Rogers believes positive care can enhance employee performance, create organization citizenship, and develop a sense o vitality. Shefer et. al. (2018).
To build positive relationships with people and reach my goals at work, I may implement unconditional positivity in my personal and professional lives. Positive regard allows me to accept and understand people for their beliefs, opinions and attitudes. Notably, people can be affected by differences in their views or values. We often appreciate the fact that others are open to our ideas and we also value it when they do. The foundation of unconditional positive regard is with yourself. It allows individuals to be open-minded and accept other people’s views, behaviours, and attitudes. Positive regard can make it easier to have positive interactions with other people in social work (Shefer and al. (2018) A positive social work approach is crucial to improving performance, and helping you achieve your goals. A social work environment where everyone understands each other and is open to accepting others’ views will have positive results. Rogers’s argument on unconditional positive regard for me and my social work practice can help to create seamless relationships with people new and increase achievement of the set goals. People can also learn to accept mistakes and be open-minded when they have relationships that promote understanding, honesty, integrity, and openness. These insights will help me to overcome problems, build meaningful relationships and accept change when it happens.
