What’s the difference between Relationships and Partnerships?
Relationships are haphazardly formed by expectations rarely examined, spoken or aligned upon. Instead, the basis of our interactions is unconscious, implied, inferred, assumed and withheld — right up until the moment our expectations are failed, disappointed or betrayed.
Partnerships are consciously created through the ownership of specific accountabilities. This process creates confidence, trust and respect ~ making extraordinary accomplishment and intimacy possible. Through what we call the Elements of Partnership, the partnership is nurtured, sustained and restored by a series of “victories of human spirit.” These elements form the heart of partnerships.
Why do we have to learn the Elements of Partnership?
Both men and women have compelling instincts, old injuries and insults, hidden destructive beliefs, and “neuro-highways” of habitual behavior. This makes it more likely for us to PREVENT what we want versus ACHIEVE what we want!
If you have the need, desire and courage to explore the paradigm of partnership and an experience far beyond mere relationship, you’re the perfect candidate for Alison’s newest online program.
“The Heart of Partnership webinar had great content that I can apply immediately to my personal and business situations. Understanding that people’s reactions to accountability are often a result of a lack of clarity between the two parties was an eyeopener for me.” ~ Kimberly, Naperville, USA
In The Heart of Partnership you’ll:
- In your MIND
Understand what each element is, why they occur in sets, and how they work together to produce connection, power, accountability and a strong sense of being valued.
- In your CONVERSATIONS
This specifically requires new ways of listening and new ways of speaking. How do you listen to invoke connection and clarity? How do you speak to turn a “yes” into reality? What does ‘acknowledgement’ sound like versus ‘appreciation’? We’ll demonstrate what partnership conversations sound like while invoking alignment, passion and teamwork.
