Humans are social animals. From tribal beginnings to agricultural settlements and modern cities, our ability to interact and cooperate with our peers in complex systems is arguably the skill stack that differentiates us from all other life on Earth. However, we still have a lot to learn about strong and healthy relationships. What are the keys to long lasting partnerships, whether they be romantic, business, family or sports teams? How can maximally leverage the power of the pack in all aspects of our lives?
In this episode we look at relationships… why they succeed, why they break down and how we can become better at fostering stronger ones in our communities.
