What's Love got to do with Work?

The workplace has always seemed to be a place where regular human needs and interactions have been suppressed for fear of what might happen - risk mitigation.

Love is paramount on the list of feelings and actions that is shied away from. However, I would contend it is the most important aspect for making one’s job and customer interactions as fruitful and successful as possible.Read More
