When relationships are nourished, they encourage a corresponding human flourishing, but when they are neglected, health, productivity, efficiency, and individual happiness all suffer. This insightful study examines relationships in the context of business and the community, including the areas of communications, management, money, and security. Using a wealth of statistics and research, it clearly demonstrates that relational poverty affects all areas of a business, and is associated with poor health, ineffective management, and low output at work. A range of tips and advice are offered on developing strong relationships in all areas and at all levels of the work place as well.
