The risks of going it alone

by on
in Workplace Communication

Say the name Burt Bacharach and people think “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “The Look of Love” or any number of pop hits he wrote with lyricist Hal David into the 1970s.  But, although Bacharach was the more famous of the two, he learned how valuable teamwork is.

After a rift in the mid-’70s ended his musical partnership with David, Bacharach tried again and again to replicate their success, to no avail.

Then, in the 1980s, Bacharach began collaborating with and married lyricist Carole Bayer Sager. Teamed once again with a wordsmith, Bacharach began writing hits, including “Arthur’s Theme” and “That’s What Friends Are For.”

The lesson: Even if you think you can do it all, you need the talent around you.
