Do you ever wonder if your partnerships are actually benefiting your business, organization or cause?
You know how important productive partnerships are to the success of your organization, but you can't increase the performance of a partner who isn't engaged. Do you know how your partners feel about your contribution to their goals? Without the right tools and information it can be difficult to determine whether or not you have developed strategic partnerships that will actually move your business or cause forward.
Take the guesswork out of partnering.
If you're frustrated by a lack of partner engagement, shrinking resources or poor communication, the Kick-It or Keep-It Partnership Assessment will help you stimulate meaningful conversations among your partners to determine if you meet the critical criteria for value-based partnering. Giving you greater confidence in determining which partnerships to kick and which partnerships are worth keeping.
Determine if your partnerships meet the 3 critical criteria for success.
If you’ve been a business leader for more than a few years, you know how critical partnerships are to the success of your organization. The problem is, you're juggling so many different partnerships - your Board, your Suppliers, your Staff, your Affiliates and Associations - that you're overwhelmed and unsure whether or not your partnerships are even working.
The Kick-It or Keep-It Partnership Assessment gives you 18 opportunities to have meaningful conversations with your partners, to determine if your partnerships meet the 3 Critical Criteria for Value-Based Partnering.
Smart organizations create value-based partnerships for greater success.
Like any marriage or merger, partnerships can be immensely rewarding and impactful - and they can also be really difficult to manage! At the highest level we know that partnerships are about: purpose, people and power - and how the three intertwine.
In a Value-Based Partnership we focus on putting purpose before people, and people before power, to maximize results.
Using the Kick-It or Keep-It Partnership Assessment you'll be empowered to have specific conversations with your partners to ensure you're addressing the preparation, process and results of each partnership.
WHAT LEADERS ARE SAYING:
Energizing. Entusing. Enthralling. Enette's uncanny ability to project your vision on a panoramic screen will sweep you off your feet, blow your mind away and set you on a path to the stars. Powerfully transformational stuff!
Nabil Doss,Vice President - Global Speakers Federation
Thank you again Enette for the Master Planning Weekend that enabled discovery... Discovery for us not only at an individual level but for us collectively as a group. I think we can definitely say that we all took away something special from the weekend - for some of us something profound; as the timing was right, for others; an invitation to be provoked to think differently and still others a challenge to get going.
Executive Leader,Retreat Participant
I went from feeling I had to take on everything myself, which was impossible and overwhelming, to seeing I could let a few things go to another plate, that it was ok to let someone help. I cannot recall every exact word, but at the end of that hour, I felt I understood myself better, understood my reasons for doing what I do more clearly, you helped me see myself in a totally different way. You helped me help myself.
Executive Leader,Coaching Client
Enette was an effective listener and helped us gain insight into several key areas, including defining our purpose, identifying our areas of strength, understanding any partnership as a transformational investment, and sustaining long-term engagement from our stakeholders. Enette is an incisive thinker and articulate facilitator who I would highly recommend to any organization.
Grant Snider,Vice Chair - Business Events Industry Coalition of Canada
It is very important for our successful WPO members take time to reflect on the seven hidden investment accounts. I was appreciative of your focus of the WPO relationships and how to build on our network.Your presentation was a highlight of our WPO retreat.
Rhona Levine Ruben,Director of Corporate Sponsorship, Women Presidents Organization
The VBP Executive Intensive program has provoked lots of personal and organizational insights. Using the VBP tool I have found out precisely the strategic priorities of my organization and have discovered how related partnerships are working and not working for the benefit of us. I am now sharing the methodology with my team and they have been involved too in this process. The VBP has brought me to reflection and action for the better performance of my organization.
José Macías,Facilitator & Founder, Dialogue in the Dark
The VBP Principles have given our organization the tools to renovate our perspective about partnerships. It has given us the light to distinguish which partnerships are strategic and which we should dissolve so our energy and resources are focused on the most important priorities. It has lead us to leverage our performance, giving better results to our sponsors and beneficiaries.
Carmen Farías,CEO, Zihuame Mochilla A. C.
Our organization has always valued partnerships but has never utilized a formal strategy to evaluate these partnerships and formulate a coherent plan. While conducting the VBP Audit we were able to prioritize the partnerships that contributed most significantly to our client services, leveraging our resources more effectively. The process led us through a coherent action plan guided by mutual values and realistic priorities. Our successful and measurable outcomes have proven the value of VBP for our organization.
George Kurzawa,Executive Director, Canadian Mental Health Association, Niagara Branch
As a small not for profit charity it is important that we have clear vision and strategic thinking in all areas of our organization. The VBP Audit and the Executive Intensive helps map out what your top priorities are and then use that as a lens when reviewing your current partnerships or analyzing any gaps. Having it mapped out all in one place ensures each department is aware of how our organization's relationships are mapped out and cross wired. It allows us as an organization to work smarter not harder.
