We've created a fictionalized book (a parable) that teaches the elements of the Relationship Quotient. It's an adventure that draws the reader in, then gently creates the learning points of the 5 C's of the Relationship Quotient.

A Wall Street investment banker has a meteoric rise to the top, only to have it all implode on him. He loses he job, his reputation, access to all his assets. Avoiding arrest for his part in the SEC scandal, he takes to the road, finding himself in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas.

This is the story of how he learns to build genuine relationships with people as he rebuilds his life. Thanks to the mentorship of a "wise beyond his years" 10-year old boy.
