We tend to believe that we make our careers out of courage, confidence, talent and skill.  But while those things do help us to enjoy our jobs a lot more, really, it’s all about relationships.  From the first interview with a prospective employer, to the eye contact you make with an unknown co-worker in the hallway, really, it’s all about relationships.  What are you saying?  What is your body language saying?  What information is being

Dr. Frankl says that although the prisoners had longed for and dreamed of freedom, when the white flag of surrender raised above the camp’s gates, there were no joyous and jubilant celebrations; the most noted
