No pair is the same, so we always customize. But we begin with this proven process:
We bring you together for 2 days. 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 (in person or virtually) seven times over the course of the following four months, to honestly take stock of progress and challenges and to reinforce or extend the learning to build a powerful partnership. We close out with a half-day culminating conversation. We will help not only strengthen 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.
