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?
- 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.
- 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
Next program launches Fall 2017. Reserve your seat today!
The Partnership Strategy Intensive has four distinct phases:
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
