The most important capacity we possess as human beings as we build relationships is our ability to influence behavior, and the one skill that determines our success as an organization is our capacity to do the same. And when organizational challenges exist or persist, it is frequently because of individuals who behave in ways that perpetuate the challenge. Our results depend on our ability to manage relationships.
