"If there's going to be a positive relationship, there's got to be a fair amount of trust. There's got to be a feeling that one values the other, and respects the other. Relationship is the substance of anything that gets done in an organization. If the relationships are bad, then you're not going to have a very positive work place, nor for that matter a very positive product or outcome." - Mercy Health Service
