    Event Description:
    "What's Love Got to Do With It? Everything! Building Relationships in Business"
    There’s a difference between a genuine connection, with positive people, versus those relationships that are so negative, and draining that every time you hear that person’s voice, you turn and run the other way.  You and I know what’s missing in those negative relationships in business.  It’s love.
     
    The kind of love we’re going to explore today doesn’t involve sex.  It's Agape Love - Love as an action.  Business love is a form of leadership found at the intersection of life and business.  It is shaped by respect, healthy boundaries, recognition of gifts, as well as the joy in co-creating a service or product that is valuable to your stakeholders, as well as your consumers.
     
    Visualize yourself…are you positive, loving, relatable?  How about your place of work?  These qualities can be taught, learned, and practiced.  There is ROI on being the Agape Leader who brings love into your workplace.  There is a cost to eliminating it.  Let’s have the courage to love who we are, what we do, and the people who work alongside us.
