How do you ensure the commitment to your partnership is reciprocal?

Successful partnerships are dependent on relationships that are authentic and trustworthy.  Through consistently honest and open dialogue, effective partners develop relationships that are based on mutual respect, optimism, personal responsibility, and the cultivation of commitments.  In this highly interactive session, available in both in-person and facilitator-led virtual editions, participants will learn about partnering skills and partnering toxins, how to develop partnering agreements, and a method of engaging in challenging conversations that is sure to improve partner communications and creativity.

Win-win is a belief in the third alternative.  It’s not your way or my way; it’s a better way, a higher way.  Stephen R. Covey
