rapport - pronounced rap-pore, refers to "agreement; harmony; relationship; connection with people as to have a good rapport (not to confuse report) with other people or nations."

usage examples:

2. his negligent actions damaged both his own and his company's rapport with many clients.
3. janelle felt it was important that she pursue a rapport with the museum's curator, as she hoped to work with him someday.
