 "In corporate life, I think there are three important areas which
 contracts can't deal with, the area of conflict, the area of change
 and area of reaching potential.  To me a covenant is a relationship
 that is based on such things as shared ideals and shared value
 systems and shared ideas and shared agreement as to the processes we
 are going to use for working together.  In many cases they develop
 into real love relationships." Max DePree, chairman and CEO of Herman
