Literature Review on how People think/feel/act in Business Relationships
This request is to do a literature review on all available research and/or articles on how people think about relationships, feel about relationships and act on relationships in their professional lives-- and also how they manage them when they cross into their personal lives. For example, how do people nurture their professional network? Regular coffee time or lunch dates, send articles to people, remind themselves to email them, only contact them when they need something, send holiday cards, etc.
And what happens if their work and personal relationships overlap. If those people also get exposed (e.g., on Facebook) to their personal lives, does that change the nature of their working relationship? Does it help? Make things trickier?
We are looking for researched findings, advice from experts and evergreen truths (if any). In particular, how have relationships changed due to technology advancements (internet availability, device proliferation and social networking).
When research is cited, we are also interested in the methodological techniques used to obtain the results.
Summary of the themes with sources should be provided in a Word document.
Work Arrangement: We allocated $20/hour for 20 hours of work, which totals $400.
