How to Make the Most of Your Partnerships at Work and in Life

by Rodd Wagner & Gale Muller, Ph.D.

Many of the greatest accomplishments can be reached only by two people working together. Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary were the first to scale Mt. Everest; Karl Malone and John Stockton were the key to each other's success on the basketball court; Michael Eisner was never as effective at Disney without Frank Wells. Authors Rodd Wagner and Gale Muller teamed up to lead a five-year endeavor to crack the code on collaboration and to discover what elements are crucial for two people becoming a successful team. Power of 2 details the eight elements that prepare partners to succeed in their most important endeavors.
