Abstract: Relationship and communication are two important components of human life with their implication on each other. Good communication finds its expression through good relationship and vice-versa.  The nature of relationship determines the tone, words, structures and objectives of communication. Human factors of sensitivities and sensibilities cement relationship and communication. In this direction, the author dwells upon certain human, behavioural, attitudinal and organizational factors that are instrumental to effective, positive and productive communication. They help in establishing and sustaining long-term relationship. Communication and relationship enter into a faceoff when the space of mutual speaking is encroached upon by impatience to win the argument which needs to be addressed. Honest disposition of the communicators and mutual respect for each other binds them in a strong relationship. Relationship laced with finer communication has the potential to set and achieve goals. A faithful reconciliation between relationship and communication is pertinent to useful communication and long lasting relationship.

 Key words: Positive attitude; trust; equality; self-discourse; relationship.
