Our Approach

Through our partnering solutions, we help organizations build Smart Partners, thereby creating partnering cultures that attract the business relationships and human talent needed for successful partnering relationships in the Information Age.

We take a holistic and systemic approach to improving your partnering capacity. Based on established adult learning practices, we transfer our partnering solutions to you using a simple three-step approach: know yourself (KNOW), use the process (SHOW), and practice the skills (DO).

Three Learning Phases in Partnership Continuum Inc.'s Approach to Improving Partnering Capacity

Clients take online assessments that provide insights into their style of behavior along with a personalized analysis of the style.

After completing the assessment, thought-provoking learning content, designed to stimulate and prompt action from the learner, is downloaded including content theory, personal debriefing and developmental action plan.

Learners observe our professional facilitators role-model the appropriate partnering behaviors.

Learners are provided an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the content through simulations and content review.

Learners practice new partnering behaviors in a safe environment while other learners and facilitators provide feedback and insights helping individuals determine the appropriate adjustment in their partnering style.

Learners develop an action plan with specific steps to improve their partnering capabilities. This may include creating a system of peer support to help reinforce their new partnering approaches and behaviors.

Solution Approach:

1. Companies Succeed Through People

We train people on how to increase their Partnering Intelligence, giving them the foundation for successful partnering on a personal and business level and providing their organization a competitive advantage in today's information-based economy.

2. Our approach emphasizes the following:

- We build your partnering competency. The ability to form trusting and mutually beneficial relationships through collaboration is the first competency you and your organization must possess. This means you must be fluent in the use of the Six Partnering Attributes. These attributes are the critical set of relational skills needed to create a winning environment in a partnership. We build your competency in the use of these attributes, which then become the foundation for a Partnering Infrastructure and Partnering Culture.

- We strengthen organizational effectiveness. This happens through use of our proprietary online partnering assessments, corporate training programs, leadership development training programs, models, and tools. These enable clients to strengthen their organizational effectiveness, drive performance improvement, and attain measurable impact on the business and the bottom line.

We teach a partnering process. The partnering process ensures that you bring balance and understanding to the needs you have - from both a task and relational perspective - and that you can articulate them, negotiate them, and measure them to determine success.
