Partner to Partner follow up...
Since returing from Inspire I have been asked on numerous occasions to share what we see as the critical foundations of joint partnering success… so here they are:
- Effective partnerships start with a personal connection with a fundamental alignment on the WHY (See Simon Sinek’s Ted Talk for more on this).
- Effective partnerships require ongoing investment which go beyond financial investment and include energy, sincerity, candid conversations and accountability.
- Effective partnerships demand reflection & adaptability; we all operate in a dynamic marketplace and as such our partnerships need to be flexible and elastic.
Let’s go deeper on thie first point for a moment; the WHY. Taking incredibleresults as an example, I could write you a list of what we do but you might view it as the consulting equivalent of a market stall, give us a quick glance and walk away. I could tell you how we deliver our services which is great if what you care about most is delivery, but if I tell you that our why centres on our fixation to inspire others to realise their ambition and enable incredible results, then doesn’t it suddenly become a little more interesting to you?
Doesn’t it give us the potential to make a meaningful connection based on shared beliefs? And doesn’t it give us the opportunity to do more interesting, inspiring business as a result of those beliefs?
Whats your WHY?
