Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Many of the greatest accomplishments can be reached only by two people working together. Tenzing and Hillary were the first to scale Mt. Everest. Malone and Stockton were the key to each other's success on the basketball court. Eisner was never as effective at Disney without Wells.

But while some partnerships reach great heights, others fall short. Why do some people click while others clash? What do great pairs have in common? And what can you learn from the most powerful partnerships to strengthen collaboration in your work and personal life?

Based on Gallup's groundbreaking research, Power of 2 details the eight elements that prepare partners to succeed in their most important endeavors. Rodd Wagner, coauthor of the bestseller 12: The Elements of Great Managing, and Gallup World Poll leader Gale Muller, Ph.D., share the science and the secrets of successful collaboration.

Mixing key insights about human nature, field-tested discoveries, and inspiring stories of partnerships that reached the pinnacle, Power of 2 will change the way you think about working with someone else.


"I firmly believe in the ability of 'ordinary' people to come together to achieve extraordinary results. Power of 2 identifies the key ingredients for breakthrough performance -- a shared mission, a commitment to collaborate, an understanding of individual strengths -- and assembles them into a blueprint that any company would be wise to adopt."
—Brian J. Dunn, Chief Executive Officer, Best Buy

"Those who collaborate achieve the mission. Those who go it alone are likely to fail. This basic principle is too often forgotten. Power of 2 is required reading for anyone, in any kind of organization, who intends to get the job done."
—Lieutenant General Russel Honoré, U.S. Army (Ret.), former commander of the Hurricane Katrina Joint Task Force and author of Survival: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save You and Your Family From Disasters
