Collaboration is a Talent

What does it take to be a good business partner?
I agree with 

Margaret Heffernan, sentiments...

Humility - because strategic partnering works when you appreciate your own weaknesses and plug them with someone else’s strengths.
Patience - because partnerships take time. (Cirque du Soleil didn’t consummate their deal with Disney until ten years after the first approach.)
Vision - because a wide perspective is needed if you aren’t going to get entangled in games of one upmanship.
Partnering represents a profound competitive advantage. But many companies just can’t do it. Any ideas why?
