Data Analytics and Three Levels of Love

As a data analytics manager, you are only as good as the people around you. Creating a high-performance data analytics team is imperative if you want to succeed.

Love is one of the most common words in the English lexicon—and hence, the most misunderstood. The popular definition of love—the one that pop artists croon about and teenagers dream about—is actually lust. It’s an irresistible, all-consuming, hormone-driven emotion that binds us to another person. But research shows that lust fades after two years (at most). For a relationship to survive, lust must be replaced by love.
