Amidst all the collective angst about our political discourse, I found myself, one afternoon last fall, in a meeting with the leadership team of the government affairs group at the law firm, Arent Fox. One partner, Jon Bouker, is a Democrat. Another, Dan Renberg, is a Republican. And as we talked, they kept making me laugh. Watching them interact, watching them brainstorm together, watching them riff on each other’s points, I realized we could all use a little more of whatever makes them effective. So I asked them to come on the show, along with fintech expert Kate Flocken from the firm’s emerging technologies group, to share with you, our listeners, the secrets of how to get things done in a polarized and partisan environment.
