Great combination of research, stories and practical advice on forming powerful partnerships
on October 26, 2009
The Power of 2 is a wonderful mix of research, stories and practical guidance to improve the partnerships in anyone's life. This is a book for all. The themes presented to strengthen partnerships can be applied to business, social, and marital relationships and can even be applied to your relationship with your children.
Gallup research shows that there are eight elements of a powerful partnership; complementary strengths, common mission, fairness, trust, acceptance, forgiveness, communicating and unselfishness. Rodd Wagner (the author of the bestselling 12: The Elements of Great Managing) and Gale Muller write in a wonderful style that brings to life through stories and real life examples the findings of this research and provides glimpses into powerful partnerships like Michael Eisner and Frank Wells of Disney; Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft who crossed 1,7 78 miles of Antarctica in 97 days; Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman and Amod Tversky in their study of decision making and Karl Malone and John Stockton of the Utah Jazz professional basketball team.
If you are interested in reaching excellence in your partnerships this is the book for you.
