Survival of the Friendliest

Darwin talked about survival of the fittest but now a new book is focusing on survival of the friendliest.

Cooperation and sociability are turning out to be just as important as physical strength and endurance especially in the high-tech age.

Dogs and wolves are cited as examples.  Wolves being strong and fierce and dogs being their friendly descendants.  Wolves are endangered.  Dogs are people’s best friend and exist in great numbers.

Friendliness may be worth doubling down on from the board room to personal relationships.  Learning how to win cooperation and teamwork are the skills that can make us thrive.
