Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The hidden superpower of great leaders? Deep connections.

Our individualistic society has created a cult of self-sufficiency. The result: fear, division and domination, which has crushed our ability to relate meaningfully to each other in the workplace and diminished our ability to innovate and collaborate.

Jean Oelwang, president of Virgin Unite, has interviewed over 60 business and life partnerships - including Desmond and Leah Tutu, and Ben and Jerry - revealing how to nurture relationships with depth and purpose. These kinds of deep connections have a profound ripple effect on everything we do, supporting us to achieve more, withstand anything and amplify impact. Enduring partnerships are the foundation of a meaningful life as well as the backbone of any successful organisation. In this audiobook, she unpicks the values that connect great partners, the daily rituals that they use to stay in sync and the habits that allow them to disagree respectfully and productively.

Packed with wisdom to nourish the relationships that give us strength and meaning, Partnering is a call-to-action for individuals resisting individualism to lead with purpose and impact.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A superb listen

Good narration and easy to follow. Inspiring stories of great leaders and business leaders, the dynamics of their relationships and how they've gone on to achieve greatness.

A gap between the stories and my day life

There are good stories that can inspire, but the author makes no meaningful links between those and our ordinary life. I felt that the book depicts this perfect world made by perfect partners without caring to touch the struggle we face to create it, without assessing practical tools that are necessary for us to achieve it.

The belief that good relationships have a great
Potential was the reason I bought the book. Sustaining it all over the book was redundancy.
