No pair is the same, so we always customize. But we begin with this proven process:
We bring you together for 2 days, generally split over two meetings, about a week apart. We build the essentials of a great partnership: Sharing deep purpose, negotiating the best mix of roles, fully capitalizing on your respective strengths and managing your respective and collective weaknesses, and practicing the kind of dialogue that will keep you on the same productive page.
We follow this up by getting together three times at intervals of 2 weeks, then 3-4 weeks, and then 2 months to honestly take stock of progress and challenges, and to reinforce or extend the learning to build a powerful partnership. We will help not only strength the two of you, but support you so that your renewed clarity and communication patterns will radiate out through the organization.
The best time to build a partnership is right out of the gate, in your first days, weeks or months of working together.
Our Onboarding process is customized to fit the individual client’s needs. We usually require two days for onboarding and then follow-up on a set schedule.
