Partnering For Success


Not in Canada? Join us LIVE via the webcast.

Increasing Engagement.

Partnering Under Pressure.

Dissolving Partnerships.

Every day you have to make tough partnership decisions; while managing constantly changing and competing priorities. As a leader you know you can’t increase the performance of partners who aren’t engaged, but you also know you can get them engaged if you don’t understand what they value.

Measuring the productivity and value of your partnerships is critical to ensuring success. Understanding when and how to best dissolve a partnership that has run its course, helps free up essential resources for higher priorities.

Your board members, executives, senior leaders and partners, all know that partnering is essential to the success of the organization, but they’re often challenged and frustrated by;

  • adapting to changes they didn’t anticipate or influence.
  • thriving after integrations or mandated partnerships.
  • being held accountable for results they feel no control over.
  • partnering with people they don’t know, like or trust.

Partnerships are only an investment until they become an expense. Smart organizations align partnerships with their high level strategic priorities for short and long-term success.

Move from crisis to cause, even under pressure.

In this interactive, practical and hands on workshop, you will discover the critical criteria every partnership must have to be successful.

Armed with this new knowledge we will discuss the three most pressing issues leaders deal with around partnering: improving engagement and performance, partnering under pressure, and knowing when to dissolve a partnership.

The goal of this session is to arm you with the insights you need to create meaningful conversations with your partners that immediately transform your results.


  • The 3 critical criteria for Value-Based Partnerships
  • Strategies for improving partner engagement, starting today
  • Methods for managing partnerships under pressure
  • Action steps for determining when to dissolve a partnereship

Join us, and learn how you can partner for success!
