partnership  start-up

Great partnerships work at two different levels – organisational and interpersonal. Contracts may be signed and targets and schedules agreed, but that in itself does not guarantee that partners will be able to pull together to deliver. Our start-up sessions are all about creating real alignment and understanding at a leadership level, to the point where partners can begin the job of developing a robust and interdependent partnership culture. We help partners take the conversation beyond the easy stuff and to begin to relate to each other with the openness and trust that will be the key to success when the project is running at full speed. Why waste time in a partner relationship learning from mistakes, when you can put yourselves on the right footing from the start? Who is it for: Leadership Teams looking to build successful multi-stakeholder partnerships What to expect: A carefully tailored programme of initial engagement with each partner, followed by a one or two day off-site event to allow people to get to know each other, explore the mission and purpose of the partnership and develop the building blocks of a successful working relationship. Outcomes: – Clarity on mutual expectations between partners – Alignment behind purpose and mission – Stronger working relationships – Better morale and improved energy

partnership challenge

Even with the best will in the world, day to day pressures can put a real strain on any partnership. Rather than ignoring the warning bells, why not take time out for an honest, open and positively focused session designed to keep the relationship on track for success?

We will help you to see the issues from your partner’s perspective, to work collaboratively to identify and break down barriers and navigate the rocks in the road.

Who is it for:

Leadership Teams in established partnerships who either want to be proactive in developing the quality and effectiveness of their working relationships, or who are facing particular challenges that need worked through.

What to expect:

Initial diagnostic work with all partners, followed by the design and delivery of a facilitated programme of workshops. The output from these workshops will deliver clear, measurable action plans for change and performance development.

Outcomes: – Partnership re-energised – Develop and re-establish trust between key players – Resolving specific relationship / performance issues
