pay cuts, signing personal guarantees for business loans, and more. I can tell you we had to do this at Zweig Group at various points in our long history, and the partners stood up and took the hits and maintained the company’s viability. People who will do that are good partners! One more thing: I don’t need to be best friends with my business partners. That’s OK, too. Everyone spends plenty of time with their people at work. We can all have mutual respect for each other and work as a team without having to do everything together, both inside and outside of the office. If you think friendship is a requirement for business partners, you won’t be able to build your business. There are only so many “best friends” anyone needs or can sustain, and that is too high of a bar to throw up for potential business partners. Mutual respect is much more important! Mark Zweig is Zweig Group’s chairman and founder.

Here are the qualities that have been present in some of the best partners I have had over the years.”

Integrity is a term I don’t hear used often, but it’s an essential quality for good business partners. It’s not all about accountability forced on people through their managers. Let’s face it, once people become partners – at least in many companies – they are treated as if they have tenure with no boss. Therefore we need responsible partners who don’t need to be closely managed for results and can instead be counted on to be self-accountable. 5. Great interpersonal skills. I don’t think everyone needs to be an extrovert, and yet that is some people’s understanding of “interpersonal skills.” I do mean that partners must be people who know how to communicate clearly and understand how to treat other people so they don’t alienate and demotivate them. This is a crucial quality for partners! 6. Willingness to make sacrifices for the benefit of the whole. Even though it may not feel like it now, some leaders have had to make sacrifices in the past and could have to again to keep everything together. That may mean
