  • 18th May 2018
    08:30 - 15:45

Positive interpersonal relationships are the key to creating positive energy in people’s lives.

When people experience positive interactions they are elevated, revitalised, enlivened and motivated.

Positive relationships also help people perform better in tasks and at work. The performance or an organisation is also enhanced by the presence of positive relationships among its employees.

Employees are more loyal and committed to their work, and to their organisation, when positive relationships exist.

Creativity and innovation are also substantially in the presence of positive relationships.
