New Book To Help Mend Your Breaking Relationships
Toronto: Put bluntly, our relationships suck – socially, economically, politically and religiously – at home, work, politics and in faith. Relationship analyst, consultant and speaker Robert E. Hall has successfully examined the strategic implications, quantified the compounding cost and provided the solution to the social, emotional and especially economic relationship decline that now gravely increases our societal risk of permanent failure.
Underneath all of the chaos in our families, alienation in business, dysfunction in government and the food fight in faith and secular belief is a simple reality: we are exiting relationships at an unprecedented and unsustainable rate:
• Over the past 50 years people are fleeing marriage in unprecedented numbers as divorce is up 50%, marriage is down 50% and in 2012 over half of babies born to those under 30 will be to single moms
• The average number of close friends is down by a third in the past 20 years according to research by the American Sociology Review
• The defection of employees from their employers doubled for skilled workers, sales people and managers for the five years prior to the recession and a MetLife surveys in 2012 says 1/3 of employees are planning to leave their employer by the end of the year.
• Customer defection rates have risen 30% in recent years.
• Defections from religious affiliation has doubled in the past two decades
• Finally, defections from political parties has nearly doubled in the past fifty years
People are leaving personal and organizational relationships in unprecedented numbers. Why?
Robert, author of the new book, This Land Of Strangers: The Relationship Crisis That Imperils Home, Work, Politics and Faith, now for the first time, makes sense of our relationship fight and the attendant flight that is wreaking so much havoc.
Richard Boyatzis, a Harvard Ph.D. and author of the international best seller, Primal Leadership calls it This Land of Strangers “the most important book of the decade.”
