Friend FoeWhat does it take to succeed This uestion has fueled a long running debate Some have argued that humans are fundamentally competitive and that pursuing self interest is the best way to get ahead Others claim that humans are born to cooperate and that we are most successful when we collaborate with others In FRIEND AND FOE researchers Galinsky and Schweitzer explain why this debate misses the mark Rather than being hardwired to compete or cooperate we have evolved to do both In every relationship from co workers to friends to spouses to siblings we are both friends and foes It is only by learning how to strike the right balance between these two forces that we can improve our long te Imagine going to to an orchestra performance You are really looking forward to this occasion as you have heard great things about the performers and the music they will be performing But as the first notes start playing you realise something is off The music is discordant uncoordinated even and the whole audience is in a state of confusion Disgruntled and frustrated you leave the performance at half time having learned no than before you got there For anyone wanting to learn about when to cooperate and when to compete —a fundamental element of personal and career success — this is the state of academia confronting them Although a great deal of research has been done and a great many insights gathered the field is difficult to access for experts and lay people alike Until now that is Profs Galinsky and Schweitzer in their roles as conductors of the orchestra are able to weave together individual instruments and tones into a comprehensible melody And their contribution does not end at the role of conductor this dream team of researchers and writers have also been crucial in the development of some instruments and playing techniues in the orchestra metaphor having written over 250 scientific articles on this very topic Galinsky and Schweitzer achieve a sheer genius feat being able to provide the interested readerlistener with the latest knowledge in cooperation and competition tied together with personal stories and anecdotes that touch both the heart and the brain The line of outstanding social science writers like Steven Pinker Malcom Gladwell Daniel Gilbert and Daniel Kahneman must now also count Adam Galinsky and Maurice Schweitzer amongst themselves Bravo
