Being on the receiving end of ‘make your partner look good’
Blog > Being on the receiving end of ‘make your partner look good’
February 5, 2012
Last week I had the privilege of working with a couple of people who – probably even unknown to themselves – epitomised the principle of ‘make your partner look good’. I was that partner, on the receiving end. I can’t yell you what a joy it is to work with people like this. Reinforces for me how important it will be for me, in the future, to make my partner look good too, whoever it is I’m working with. Oh, and it helps a LOT if you like, maybe even love each other a little, admire each other’s work, trust each other and just like hanging out together. How different could work be if we sought out those people who helped us be ourselves and do our best work?
