Product Details


“The practice of partnership comes from your philosophy of partnership. True Partnership is a powerful tool for shaping your philosophy into a form that fosters partnership greatness.”
—Chip Bell, author of Customers As Partners and coauthor of Dance Lessons: Six Steps to Great Partnerships in Business and Life

“I have seen too many times where a lack of collaboration between people becomes the root cause of business inefficiencies and loss of competitive advantage. Zaiss’ book helps us understand why and how to change our attitudes and behaviors to form richer and more satisfying partnerships.”
—Russ Millholland, Director of Human Resources, Saint-Gobain Ceramics and Plastics

“Once again Carl has articulated a powerful vision for our relationships and delivers the principles and practices to accomplish it. Applying his model makes life more satisfying at work and at home.”
—Mark Siegfried, Regional Sales Manager, Digital Island

“Powerful partnerships make for a good life. If you read this book it will make you a more conscious partner, and a more open, honest, creative and powerful human being.”
—Brad Blanton, Ph.D., author of Radical Honesty and Practicing Radical Honesty

“Yes this is a business book, but you will cheat yourself if you consider it as just another business book. Zaiss presents a viewpoint that is outside the norm of the traditional business book. It will provoke your mind. It will not gather dust.”
—JoAnn Dye, Director of Training and Development, Great American Insurance

“Don’t miss the profound message of this book. True Partnership issues a quite challenge to discover the possibilities of every relationship, every encounter.”
—Jeff Wilson, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting

“Caution! This book cannot be read just once. Each chapter is loaded with compelling insights that will show you how to take your relationships to the next level. Carl offers timeless principles that have both personal and professional applications. This book should be required reading in Corporate America.”
—Richard Basch, Director of Training and Development, A-TEK, Inc.

“These communication strategies are very simple, yet extremely powerful, and will make a profound difference in all of your personal and professional relationships. Live these concepts, share them with everyone you know, and reap the rewards of satisfying relationships.”
—Mary Stern, President, Metro DC Chapter of American Society of Training and Development

“In a fast-paced world, this insightful book is an excellent guide on how to take control and get beyond life’s roadblocks and how to alter your relationships to achieve greater success.”
—Gary Decatur, President, Choice Hotels of Canada

“In this increasingly wired, interconnected, networked world, the quality of our expanding relationships increases in importance. Zaiss’ book lays out a way that anyone can improve the effectiveness—and consequently the value—of those relationships. The nature of relationships is changing and this book helps show you how you can change too.”
—Peter Leyden, Knowledge Developer, Global Business Network and coauthor of The Long Boom: A Vision for the Coming Age of Prosperity and former managing editor of Wired magazine

“True Partnership uses a fresh approach to address the age-old organizational requirement for team building and leadership training. I found this book to be clear and full of common sense ideas adaptable to the everyday business environment.”
—Sue Richter, National Vice President, International Humanitarian Organization

“Carl Zaiss gives us a way of approaching relationships that pre-empts their breakdown and he empowers us with a surprisingly simple model for repairing relationships that are already strained. The outcome is partnership—a highly desirable state that is too rarely achieved in organizational life.”
—Ira Chaleff, Chairman of the Board, Congressional Management Foundation and author of The Courageous Follower: Standing Up To and For Our Leaders
