Power Through Partnership

How Women Lead Better Together

Betsy Polk (Author) | Maggie Ellis Chotas (Author) | Anne-Marie Slaughter (Foreword by)

Publication date: 11/03/2014

Power Through Partnership
Drawing from their own twelve-year partnership and from interviews with 125 women business partners across the world, Betsy Polk and Maggie Chotas have learned something powerful: when women work together they discover a level of support, balance, confidence, accountability, and a freedom to be themselves that is rarely found in other work relationships.

Heroic male partnerships are a staple business success story, but female partnerships rarely get the same kind of attention. Power Through Partnership is a call for women to recognize and build on the inherent strengths that make them uniquely able to create successful, trust-based professional relationships. Polk and Chotas demolish the myths that keep women from collaborating and then offer readers advice for handling potential challenges like finding the best partner, dealing with conflict, facing fears, taking risks, and knowing when to let go of a partnership.

Featuring lessons learned from women partners in all kinds of industries, this book shows that when women collaborate " combining complementary skills, pushing ego aside and supporting each other " they can work as full equals to achieve something that's exponentially greater than the two alone.
