Relationships in business…

What kind of relationship exists between the management, employees and customers where you work?

Tonight I’ve been teaching on relationships in the workplace in a ‘Business Ethics’ course in Hopkinsville, Ky. We have been looking at relationships between management… employees… & customers in the average business in regards to ‘expectations’ and ‘responsibilities.’

What expectations does each role have of one another?

How does this play out in a group like the church? I know we typically don’t describe the church as a business… but it does have business like attributes in a culture like ours that is so consumer driven.

For instance… What should be the relational expectations and responsibilities shared between church leaders, volunteer servants and participants? Can the church learn anything from well run and effective businesses in this area?

What should the church be teaching the management, employees ad customers that make up their congregation?
