In this illuminating and thoughtful text, Neil Pembroke shows how relationships form the heart of chaplaincy, nursing and social care practice. Developing ideas from Martin Buber and virtue theory he shows how authentic, compassionate self-communication forms the basis of relatedness in human services work. Drawing on examples from everyday life and human services work settings, Pembroke demonstrates the importance of trust and feelings of belonging in the working environment. He considers in particular the connection between spirituality and the idea of personal charm, showing how charm can be seen as a vital component in the communication of self, which enables us to nurture the physical and spiritual well-being of those we care for.

As the director of the Creating Working Relationships Programme at Ashridge, one of Europe's top 20 business schools, Fiona Dent knows how important it is for individuals to work together effectively. In her latest pocketbook (she has also written our popular title on leadership) she describes how to create, develop and sustain constructive working relationships. 'Whatever your level in the organisation, profession, role or nationality', she says, 'much of your success will depend on how you interact with those around you.' The book describes how to create, build and sustain relationships. It identifies the key features that make a relationship work (eg openness and honesty, empathy, respect and trust) and those that don’t (eg jealousy, arrogance, conflict of interest and misunderstanding). The focus is on helping readers recognise their own approaches to relationships at work, thereby enabling them to identify and understand the differences in other people's approaches and modify their own behaviour accordingly. This modification, combined with good interpersonal and communication skills, lies at the heart of relationship-building.

The Protection of Working Relationships

A Comparative Study

In recent years it has become clear that many businesses, motivated by avoiding the rigidity and the price tag associated with labour law and social security, have succeeded in eroding the protection of labour law by creating numerous categories of workers classified as non-employees. In 1996 the International Labour Organisation (ILO) adopted Recommendation 198, which asks its Members to undertake action to reduce 'disguised' employment relationships, with the goal of ensuring that those actually working in an employment relationship are actually given the corresponding legal status. Though these are - from a legal approach - two conceptually different phenomena, they are closely related from a social policy point of view. In order to make a substantial contribution to the discussion on these developments a group of noted European labour law scholars has undertaken the research assembled in this book, recommending labour law reforms based on a close examination of existing conditions. The eight authors analyse measures and legal instruments offered by the European Union and the ILO to cover persons performing personal work, as well as specific developments in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Poland, Germany, and the United Kingdom. In each case they describe viable ways in which categories of persons not treated as employees can be brought under the protection of labour law and how the distinction between employees and self-employed can become more clear. In a concluding final Chapter comparative conclusions are drawn on the basis of this study and recommendations are given to the EU, the ILO and the individual Member States. Among the specific issues covered are the following: * redefining the subordination criterion; * the role of the courts; * determination of the contract of employment; * forms of labour involving more than two contracting parties (e.g., employment agency arrangements); * the legal position of temporary workers; * 'employee-like' persons, e.g., home-workers or commercial representatives; * the 'bogus' self-employed; * introduction and effect of legal presumptions in labour law and/or social security; * developing uniform criteria for the employment relationship; * criteria for identifying self-employed but economically-dependent workers; * extension of protection of labour law to persons other than employees or the self-employed; and * social rights applicable to all work contracts irrespective of their formal qualification; * floor of core rights. This study seriously contributes toward overcoming the reluctant and piecemeal measures commonly taken to extend the protection of the employment contract. Although the authors acknowledge the continuing tension between labour law protection and the need for a flexible workforce, they also recognize the positive effects of best practices that lead to more certainty, fewer disputes, and clear (but still flexible if necessary) agreements. The book will be warmly welcomed as a signal contribution to addressing what one labour law scholar has called 'the most important industrial relations issue of our time.'

Beyond Nice is about creating excellent working relationships in Churches and other Christian organisations. It looks at why Christian bodies struggle with people issues and people management. The author has taken his experience as a practising Christian in the business world and has sought to understand why Christian organisations often find it more difficult to manage people than businesses do. He also explores potential solutions to this problem, and central to this are almost 40 interviews conducted with Christian leaders; bishops, pastors, charity leaders, academics and consultants. He also looks at the example Jesus gives us of how to deal with and lead people. Together, these things are combined to offer potential solutions to current Christian leaders, and some food for thought to Christian followers about how best to support their leaders.
