Creating Business Partnerships

Creating Business Partnerships

Influencing and partnering skills are the basis for success for any consultant or internal staff professional. These skills allow you to form strong business relationships with your "clients" and enable you to impact positively on their thinking and actions. You need to ask yourself:

  • What power base do you operate from for optimal success?
  • How can you build long term, value added relationships with your "clients"
  • How do you build your influence within you organistation?

You need to find ways in which you can impact on and change the existing paradigms and behaviours entrenched in your organisations. The partnerships you build are equally critical to the value you can add.
