BooksWeekly: Friend or Foe?
While a superb introductory piece for conflict resolution and teamwork, I truly think that the authors could have made this book longer and better. They could have included more research, more hard evidence to back up their theories on innate human behavior and the sociology behind cooperate and competition. This book feels rushed, like a rough draft edited only for grammar not for content.
Friend & Foe: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, and How to Succeed at Both
How to decide when to cooperate and when to compete…and how to become better at both. In our most important relationships, from the negotiating table in the boardroom to the breakfast table with our kids, we routinely face challenges that appear to offer two opposing solutions. Yet the question — should we cooperate or should we compete — is often the wrong one. Our most important relationships are neither cooperative nor competitive. Instead, they are both. These comments really hit home with me, evoking memories of dozens of situations when, as a parent, I said or did something wrong for all the right reasons. I was an enabler.
