Partnership is a Verb

Having a partner can be great when you’re a business owner, but it’s easy to become complacent, or let hotter fires prevail over your efforts to maintain a healthy partnership. 

So make time with your partner a priority habit. Plug in weekly partner meetings at a time most likely to stay sacred and at a place away from the office to avoid interruptions or delays. Talk about your big picture plans and the day-to-day.  Resolve discrepancies before they become full-blown conflicts. Tell each other what support you need back at the office.

Whether your partnership is an asset or a liability begins with your commitment to having a great relationship.  After all, partnership is a verb.

    Probably the two most successful partnerships I have seen among my clients were Black & Veatch when it was a partnership structure – and that lasted for MANY years – and continuing today, Ascend Travel, formerly known as All About Travel. The two partners are probably the most integrated leaders I have ever seen in business. They are an extraordinary example on so many levels. For those interested, they are worth going to school on.
