Developing a Partnership Strategy

Intensive, real-world training for today's modern executives

The Partnering Economy is here and relationships are the new currency. Are you equipped to succeed?

The effect you desire to have as a leader takes a team, a mastermind, an organization, a community, or a system. Nothing great is done alone and individual dreams are realized through collective impact. Which makes working together the secret sauce for transformation in any organization.

Whatever you and your organization are up to, you can’t do it alone.

When was the last time you did something completely independently? Even the air you breathe and the water you drink require Mother Nature. That salad you ate for lunch – did you grow and harvest it from scratch, without the help of the elements? The purpose that calls to you – would it hold the same meaning if other people didn’t exist? People give you a purpose.

We exist in nested hierarchies of complex networks within ecosystems – physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, financially, educationally, and economically. The challenge for current leaders is that the amount of stakeholders continues to increase. In addition to investors, you may have Board members, suppliers, employees, direct reports, affiliates, associations, and more.

With all of the numerous partnerships to keep track of, manage, and measure, it can get overwhelming.

HAVE YOU FACED THESE CHALLENGES AS A LEADER?

Finding The Right Partners

Finding the right partners to work with, who share your cause or goal can be difficult without a partnership strategy.

Conflict Among Partners

The lack of purposeful agreements with your partners and stakeholders often leads to miscommunication, conflict or lack of trust.

Lack of Resources & Engagement

When you partners are disengaged or not providing resources, its often a sign that your partnership doesn’t meet the 3 Critical Criteria for success.

Unproductive Meetings

Hosting productive stakeholder meeting that actually move your cause or mission forward require planning and preparation.

Don’t leave your partnerships
to chance or circumstance.

If you’re in the Strategic Planning phase with your organization, if you’ve been given mandated partnerships, if you’re going through a merger, or if you’re applying for accreditation; developing a partnership strategy will exponentially amplify your success.

Build partnering into your strategy.

The Partnership Strategy Intensive is hands-on program that teaches smart, effective value-based partnering skills to leaders who want to increase the value of their partnerships, while increasing their value as a partner.

Through intensive training workshops, virtual meetings and partnership webinars, we explore the key principles of Value-Based Partnerships; building the skills to identify and develop strategic partnerships while freeing up and redistributing critical resources.

  • Identify your highest priority partnerships
  • Create alignment between partnerships and strategic priorities
  • Invest time, energy and resources in the right partnerships
  • Catch problems in advance with regular partnership audits
  • Partner confidently with those you don’t know, don’t like, or don’t trust
  • Gain credibility as a more valuable community partner

Are You Ready to Develop a Partnership Strategy?

The Partnership Strategy Intensive has four distinct phases:

PHASE ONE

PARTNERSHIP AUDIT

We kick off the program with a virtual training session to introduce you to the Value-Base Partnership Principles© and the 3 Critical Criteria every partnership must have to be successful. We review the components of the VBP Audit Tools and prepare you to complete your partnership audit prior to the in person intensive.

PHASE TWO

INTENSIVE TRAINING

The in-person training workshop is designed to be educational, with an emphasis on consultation feedback. We focus on helping you address your toughest partnership questions that arise during the audit, including: building new partnerships, partnership performance, dissolving partnerships, or obtaining additional resources

PHASE THREE

PARTNER TRAINING

This is where we engage your partner network to create a common understanding and shared language; providing an important foundation for your ongoing partnerships. This jam-packed webinar provides them with the basics of the VBP Principles, at no added cost for you, or them. Invite your internal executive team and board members and the teams of each of your partners.

PHASE FOUR

PARTNER REVIEW

Until now, your partners have been put under the microscope. It’s time for you to reach out to your partners to check-in about their perceptions of the partnership.  We give you the tools you need to facilitate meaningful conversations with your highest priority partners, to determine if you’re on track to success.
