Being a good communicator and able to forge good relationships is a starting point, but it has to extend to include, for example, the capacity to establish a dialogue in difficult circumstances: to negotiate, mediate, set boundaries, challenge and influence. Constructive relationships may have to be developed with diverse and challenging clients, relatives, colleagues, managers, trainees, other professions, planners, politicians and often the media and the public. This requires, as we have argued, not only a good understanding of how others may operate but also a sensitive and well-tuned awareness of oneself.
The notion of evidence-based practice stems from this tradition (Muir Gray, 1997) and now forms the basis for policy planning and implementation, for professional practice and audit and for professional training and professional development.
