A partnership is like rubbing two sticks together. One stick won’t start a fire.
A good partnership is based on the truth that good minds don’t think alike. They think differently.
Partnership is more productive than either membership or followership.
In a good partnership, “No one’s ever done it that way” doesn’t end a discussion; it starts it.
A good partner is the other partner’s biggest supporter and severest critic.
A partnership succeeds when no partner is willing to be outdone by another partner.
Partners don’t just share credit; they increase the amount of credit to be shared.
A good partner doesn’t just make the other partner look better. A good partner makes the other partner be better.
In a good partnership, all partners look to the future – but not in exactly the same places.
