economics He defines relationomics asthe study of the observable impact that relationships have on economic activity It s an assessment of the value created by relationships as opposed to simply a fiscal transactional analysis In the marketplace, a significant causal correlation exists between the strength of the relationship and the flow of resources The stronger and healthier the relationships, theproductive and profitable the transactions between those parties tend to bep 36.I found this an extremely practical and wise book that rings true to my years as a director in a religious non profit, and challenged me to take a look at my own relational practices The book is organized around four relational qualities, with several chapters under each of the following intentionality, humility, accountability, and sustainability I ll share some of the most valuable insights and takeaways for me from each section.Intentionality As a kid who grew up as something of a loner, his chapter on The Great Deception names a lesson I ve had to learn that growth comes in relationships as we have others who encourage, sharpen, and challenge us He calls the effort to grow outside of relationships the Luciferian lie When organizations treat people as pawns and foster cut throat competition rather than collaboration, they suffer He argues that effective leaders foster remarkable cultures where people believe the best in one another, want the best for one another, and expect the best from one another p 63.Humility Humble leaders know themselves well and are comfortable in their own skin, which breeds in turn authenticity and empathy He describes two kinds of growth spirals One is descending characterized by defensiveness, rationalization, stagnation, and alienation The other is ascending, characterized by openness, honest evaluation, solution orientation, and inspiration through unity He also proposes a Poor Man s 360 question that I intend to use What s it like for you to be on the other side of me He also states that there are two kinds of leaders in organizations There are value creators, who bringto the table than they take away, enriching the lives of others and their relationships There are also value extractors, who getfrom you than they offer It shows up at networking events, and Ross proposes a practice he calls NetWeaving, of looking for ways, to connect others with common interest, paying it forward, as it were Often we don t lead like this because of fear, which great leaders transcend when they decide that being open handed actually creates for them a greater capacity to receive as well as give.Accountability Good organizational relationships flourish when everyone s OAR is in the water when there is ownership, accountability, and responsibility Good organizations have accountability in how they engage in workplace conflicts, the goal of which is to avoid throwing sand He gives five practical suggestions in this regard 1 I will talk to you before I ever talk about you.2 I will engage in candid conversations with humility, knowing I have room to grow.3 We will seek objective input if we come to an impasse.4 I recognize that the objective of the conversation is to seek understanding, resolve issues, and move toward unity.5 I will forgive quickly with some qualifications about destructive behaviors pp 177 183.Sometimes this means practicing RAW conversations These Reveal reality, Advance creative dialogue, and Wrestle with solutions This last seems particularly important that both stay at the table with time outs if it gets too emotional until there is resolution.Sustainability This circles back to the idea of leaders who move beyond self interest in their leadership They are grounded leaders who are emotionally mature, have established convictions, and are determined They are rooted in reality, emotionally centered, relationally rich, results oriented, other focused, mission minded He offers a great example in the founder of Chobani, Hamdi Ulukaya, who is committed to high wages for his workers, and a share of the enterprise His insights about the revolving door of employee turnover focuses on how most organizations hire too quickly, and he contrasts Chick fil A, where hires are interviewed by every person they will directly relate to in the organization over an extended period.Each chapter includes reflection questions to help one crystallize the chapter content and apply it to one s own situation The writing style is clear, personal, filled with illustrations and acronyms to help remember the content If that is not sufficient, Ross includes a glossary at the end of the book For those looking for an approach to relationships that is faith based, you may recognize biblical illusions and principles in the writing But because this seems directed to a wider audience, there are no Bible references or discussions of faith in the workplace.There are lessons here for any relational context, including marriage This is especially valuable for anyone who leads a team or an organization whether a sports club, a work group or business, a task force, or a church or non profit group Unhealthy relationships can suck the life out of an organization Healthy relationships with a high performing team can be exhilarating Randy Ross s book can help a leader, who is ready to learn, to develop the latter.________________________________Disclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher I was not

    Success in business is not due to skills, strategy, or products Success in business is built on a foundation of healthy relationships That is the conviction of author Dr Randy Ross As he explains in his latest book,Business is also about relationships Relationship, through which those who have a need are linked with those who can supply, es an exchange of value that benefits both parties In fact, relationships are they very foundation of business And healthy relationships are always at th Success in business is not due to skills, strategy, or products Success in business is built on a foundation of healthy relationships That is the conviction of author Dr Randy Ross As he explains in his latest book,Business is also about relationships Relationship, through which those who have a need are linked with those who can supply, es an exchange of value that benefits both parties In fact, relationships are they very foundation of business And healthy relationships are always at the center of thriving businesses I would go so far as to say that good business is never about simply making money It s really about building relationships and making a difference in people s lives The better you build relationships, themoney you will make Thepersonally you connect with others, theyour business will flourish.I call it relationomics Now, don t go look it up, because I made up that term But relationomics, as I define it, is the study of the observable impact that relationships hav eon economic activity It s an assessment of the value created by relationships as opposed to simply a fiscal transactional analysis In the marketplace, a significant causal correlation exists between the strength of the relationship and the flow of resources The stronger and healthier the relationship, theproductive and profitable the transactions between those parties tend to be.Within the book, the author explains the importance of being intentional about building relationships, demonstrating humility in both giving and receiving feedback, investing in others well being, being accountable and holding others accountable, and leading with love On the one hand, the author s concepts are not new or revolutionary They have appeared in other books and articles On the other hand, he presents the ideas in very understandable and practical ways that you can easily think through how to implement and practice Each chapter ends with a series of questions that will help the reader think through how to use them.Disclosure I received this book free from Baker Books through the Baker Books Bloggers program The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review

    The first thing I should say about Relationomics by Randy Ross is that it s not simple wisdom you find from a self help book Being a Christian in this day and age means having the practical ability to make your faith work in applicable ways to show others the reality of who Jesus Christ is In other words, our actions should demonstrate the truth that God s Holy Spirit is still active and speaks to us In the same manner Randy Ross has helped individuals and organizations over the years obtain The first thing I should say about Relationomics by Randy Ross is that it s not simple wisdom you find from a self help book Being a Christian in this day and age means having the practical ability to make your faith work in applicable ways to show others the reality of who Jesus Christ is In other words, our actions should demonstrate the truth that God s Holy Spirit is still active and speaks to us In the same manner Randy Ross has helped individuals and organizations over the years obtain better relationships with one another Management teams ought to get along and help encourage team members fulfill their roles and goals in those organizations, such as Chick Fil A, McDonalds, General Electric, Panasonic, Comcast, and Cox Communications Randy Ross has helped these organizations achieve better results from the community at large It s no surprise then that what he writes can and will help out With Relationomics the goal Ross has is to promote healthy relationships not only in the work environment but also in every day life From being on a management team to dealing with the front line of assisting customers with a purchase we ought to and can do better to build meaningful value in one another s life And that really is the name of the game How can a customer make consistent and right choices if no one is there to help them, say buying sheet rock to create rooms in their house to give an example We need to find ways to develop and sustain those bridges with others That s what Ross covers in the pages of Relationomics and evensuch as becoming a value creator decreasing employee turnover leading beyond self interest and so muchBefore founding his current company Remarkable , Randy has led several not for profit entities in Texas and Florida, serving as VP of recruiting for a large regional mortgage corporations, based in Atlanta Later, Ross became the Chief People Officer of North American Automotive Group Him and his wife, LuAnne have four children and reside in Atlanta, Georgia I received a complimentary copy of this book from Baker Books to review this in an objective and fair review

    The single greatest factor impeding healthy relationships is myopia Randy says this tends to look like me first It s the tendency to make choices based on what is best for me, with blatant disregard for how choices may impact those around me A good marriage is a work of art crafted over the course of time by two broken people who recognize their frailty and extend grace to each other Now I recognize that that last quote seems completely unrelated to the title of the book and in many ways The single greatest factor impeding healthy relationships is myopia Randy says this tends to look like me first It s the tendency to make choices based on what is best for me, with blatant disregard for how choices may impact those around me A good marriage is a work of art crafted over the course of time by two broken people who recognize their frailty and extend grace to each other Now I recognize that that last quote seems completely unrelated to the title of the book and in many ways it is, except the context in which this quote was placed in the book Randy was called in to help solve some less than desirable work relationships and realized the manager was also on the brink of divorce He focuses instead initially on this man s relationship with his wife, gives him some feedback on what he should take responsibility for in that relationship and then, over the course of time, divided his time equally between coaching his work relationship and his marriage relationship The change that happened in both relationships was amazing Because he worked to relate better with his wife, he was, in turn, able toeffectively relate with his team members.Why Because this man was learning to be a value creator and not a value extractor What do those words mean Being a value creator means, in my own words, to live life for the benefit of others, to live for the good of the company you are working for, the family you are living with, the people you are in community with, etc Being a value extractor, again in my own words, is basically living to suck the life out of other people and making life all about yourself.One of the things I want to start to do with the books I read is to find a question that comes from the content of the book and apply it to myself And the question for me from this book is this Am I a value creator or a value extractor It s a question my husband and I have been chasing around since I read about the concept in this book.I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to everyone I especially view it as a must read to anyone contemplating starting their own business.I received this book from Baker Books and was not required to write a positive review

    In Real Estate one might say that it s location location, location, but when it comes to business, Randy Ross says it perhaps should be relationship, relationship, relationship The bottom line of a business may be all about the financial success, and so the title of this book plays on the word economics , and thus we have Relationomics Business Powered by Relationships Baker Books, 2019 People want to feel valued, most of us recognize that fact, and so this book gives some practical advic In Real Estate one might say that it s location location, location, but when it comes to business, Randy Ross says it perhaps should be relationship, relationship, relationship The bottom line of a business may be all about the financial success, and so the title of this book plays on the word economics , and thus we have Relationomics Business Powered by Relationships Baker Books, 2019 People want to feel valued, most of us recognize that fact, and so this book gives some practical advice for showing value Perhaps you ve heard something along the lines of take care of your people and your people will take care of you Ross offers some good ideas on how to do just this But in a surprising twist, it s not all about rewarding the employees, although that can certainly be appropriate at times much of this book centers on what the CEO Manager Boss Supervisor can do to personally improve his or her leadership skills so that people want to do their best for that boss A major premise is that it s up to the leader to create, develop, foster a culture where success can happen naturally In this remarkable type of culture people 1 Believe the best in one another, 2 want the best for one another, and 3 expect the best from one another p63 The rest of the book seems to build on these ideas A favorite part of this book for me was part 2, Stay in the Fray Humility It seems to address some of the issues that leaders and followers at all levels struggle with Down to earth, no nonsense advice with little room for doubt about how important the author thinks humility is I ve read a lot of leadership books, and didn t find anything new here, but the simple straight forward writing style made for an enjoyable read I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion I was not required to write a positive review

    I found Relationomics to be an incredibly insightful book Directed to those in the leadership in the business world, Dr Ross shares his wisdom in a straightforward and orderly way The book is divided into four distinct relational qualities Intentionality, Humility, Accountability, and Sustainability Each of these sections are then divided into four chapters which take these relational components and drill in deeper to their applicability One of the most satisfying additions to each chapter I found Relationomics to be an incredibly insightful book Directed to those in the leadership in the business world, Dr Ross shares his wisdom in a straightforward and orderly way The book is divided into four distinct relational qualities Intentionality, Humility, Accountability, and Sustainability Each of these sections are then divided into four chapters which take these relational components and drill in deeper to their applicability One of the most satisfying additions to each chapter was the quote that followed each chapter title I almost missed these jewels but found myself going back to each one and contemplating their inclusion For me these quotes gave authority to the author as someone who s extremely well read and studied himself Although I m highly recommending this book, I ll admit I had some difficulty reading it straight through for the sake of this book review To me it s content is suited wonderfully as a reference although I m not sure this was Dr Ross intent I found the chapter titles to besuited for a straight through read since they were catchy and unique and not straight forward and academic like a textbook might be I think my difficulty in plowing through this one was mostly on account of the straightforwardness of the content This is one of it s greatest strengths as well but I felt like the author drilled to the bedrock of his relational breakdowns that I found myself wore out spending so much time on some of the simpler components Again, however, I find the straightforwardness and ease at which Dr Ross writes to be it s greatest strength as well I finished so many chapters and said to myself how great that content was for sharing with others Whether it be in preparation for leadership classes or coaching others in your organization, the content provided in this book would be a valuable resource What I appreciated most about Relationomics is that it didn t lose steam toward the end but rather hit it s climax in the last two chapters The second to last chapter was the crescendo, taking the reader to the most valuable leadership quality, Leading with Love In most worlds, the business world especially, love is rarely a paramount consideration amongst the leadership Dr Ross defines love in the context of business relationships simply as wanting the best for one another If this simple yet profound quality would exist in excess among our greatest CEO s, politicians, and even the leadership of our countries churches, there would be know doubt that our country would flourish and excel in ways we cannot imagine The message of this book is invaluable and even if you ve heard everything that Dr Ross has said from previous authors and teachers, nothing that is said is not worth hearing again I strongly suggest this book and plan to read it again and recommend it often
