  • Partnering

  • 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 book 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.

Jean Oelwang is the President and Trustee for Virgin Unite and Senior Partner at the B Team. She sits on the Advisory Council for The Elders and the Boards of the Carbon War Room, Ocean Unite, Ocean Elders and Just Capital.
