047: Batman and Robin – Founder Dynamics
Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | RSS
Superheroes; more specifically, Batman and Robin, are the stars of today’s episode. Batman is always choosing his rivals, going out, and fighting crime… But he’s stubborn. And when faced with adversity, Robin jumps in as his backup and saves the day. One isn’t more important than the other, and in this case the roles vary depending on the situation the partners in at the time.
Whether it be in a cofounder relationship or in a romantic one, someone should be Batman and the other should be Robin. Steli and Hiten explain how they’ve handled this kind of relationship with others and with each other. They go through how they divide up work with their cofounders, and why trust was the reason their own partnership succeeded.
Today’s topics include:
- What the background is behind today’s theme
- How to have a good ‘Batman and Robin’ relationship
- Why Hiten likes Spiderman
- The reason you should be paying more attention dynamics
- Why trust is the foundation of the Batman and Robin relationship

Tips of the day:
Hiten: If you’re not thinking about relationships or the dynamics, start thinking about them. Problems come up when you don’t know how to deal with them.
Steli: For all the Alpha males and females out there, take a moment and think about an area of your life where you really want to embrace being Robin, and go full-force on it.
