I want to share why I was excited about this book when it came to the Editorial team at Berrett-Koehler Publishers, because I think it's significant. After Lean In came out and quickly rose to become a bestseller, it seemed like everyone wanted to write about women in business. It seemed like every week we were discussing a new proposal for a book on how woman can rise to leadership, and from there, a new trend emerged: there was a sudden onslaught of books on how women should behave in order to ...more
Power Through Partnership should be required reading for all College-age women. Polk and Chotas challenge women to think creatively about non-traditional paths to leadership and success, pointing to partnership as one-such path. But they do more than encourage thinking; they provide a concrete framework for women seeking better professional options, a framework supported by the best practices of their own highly successful partnership as well as those of the 125 partnership-mentors they intervie...more
Power Through Partnership is beautifully written, well-organized, and uses the interview material collected by the authors judiciously. Best of all, it does exactly what it promises to do, guiding women through the process and pitfalls of forming and sustaining (and ending) business partnerships. It's worth adding that their advice applies, not just to ongoing partnerships, but to one-time partnerships such as writing a book together or organizing an event together. I especially like that the au...more

Initially I couldnt put the book down. Having worked in an organisation with 70% of women workforce, I could relate to a multitude of ways how different women have impacted me emotionally, mentored me to become better, helped me deal with conflict, and how partnering with them helped me succeed. What caught my attention was when I could relate how partnerships with women in my personal life have helped me grow & evolve. As my expectations from this book heightened in the beginning , I did feel t...more

This book was an easy and inspiring read for women as we think about working together. In my opinion, the very last chapter was the most insightful and the most applicable to the work I hope to do. I recommend this book for a book club, women's resource group, class, and any female aspiring entrepreneur....more

I loved this book! It's an essential guide for females of all ages, particularly those who dream of a career with the ever elusive work/life balance so many of us crave. (Don't today's men want that as well? There's solid advice for all within these pages.) The authors met in 10th grade and became friends collaborating on a classroom assignment. After reconnecting many years later, they realized their complementary careers might provide the balance between home and office they both wanted. This ...more

There are lots of good ideas in this book. For instance, we should profile female partnerships more. Also, female partners should find other female partners and learn from them. However, I didn’t feel like I learned much for the 125 interviews that were completed. I was continually frustrated by the mention of a partnership and a one sentence quote from the interviews. Most partnerships I hadn’t heard of and there just wasn’t enough information given to help me understand their circumstances, ch...more
What an excellent discussion of a topic long overlooked. Even if you're not in the business world, Power Through Partnership is like a pair of glasses that brings into focus the potential for women to do great things on their own collaborative terms. We don't have to follow the status quo. As a part-time freelancer, it's made me think of how I partner with other women every day, not just in work, but in my daily life. It's already happening! Why shouldn't we be intentional about it on the busine...more
This is a must-read for all women. Whether you've always wanted to partner up and have been afraid or have never even given it thought, this book will open your eyes to all sorts of possibilities. It also shows you that women are out there rocking it, which is hopefully enough to help you get over that lack of confidence many of us struggle with....more
This book is a good first step for women who are curious about taking the leap into partnership (or sister ship, as the book mentions). The ideas are organized, the suggestions tangible, and the authors are encouraging. I hope the authors might follow up this book with one that highlights the qualities and elements of highly effective/ high quality women-led organizations.
This is an important book for all women to read. Partnership is a fantastic model for women to consider for their professional lives, just as it has worked for men for years. This is the first book that provides insight and models to support women in seeking out, initiating, and maintaining effective partnerships that yield significant personal satisfaction and commercial achievement.
