Importance of Partnership

Originally published
Originally published: 1/8/2024

As we begin a new year, we go off the beaten path with some lesser-known podcasts and books on partnership. Business-speak over the past few years has shifted from ‘How?’ to ‘Who are you?’. So, we found four podcasts and two books that speak to the importance of partnership whether that is with your clients, your industry, or your team. Some are more philosophical, and others speak directly to strategy. Enjoy the finds.  photo  

Areté: Activate Your Heroic Potential
By Brian Johnson

In Areté, Brian Johnson integrates ancient wisdom, modern science, and practical tools to, as per the sub-title of the book, help you activate your Heroic potential and fulfill your destiny. If you asked the ancient stoic philosophers how to live a good life, they’d answer you in a single word: Areté. We translate Areté as “virtue” or “excellence” but the word has a deeper meaning—something closer to being your best self, moment to moment to moment. Find it here. 


The Power of We: Succeeding Through Partnerships 
Jonathan Tisch and Karl Weber

"In The Power of We, Jonathan Tisch reminds us again that working together still yields the best results. Jon has spent a lifetime mobilizing people and organizations to get a job done in business and civic service. His experience, optimism, intelligence, and common sense are reflected in this fresh look at the rewards of partnerships."
-President Bill Clinton

"Being a leader requires vision, focus, and influence. Jonathan Tisch has exhibited all three in this great body of work about what it takes to be a partner and something bigger than yourself. The Power of We is a must-read."
-Pat Riley, President, the Miami HEAT. Find it here.
