Description: “The Relationship between Business Partners – good Marriages and better Divorces” – led by Cathy Foster
People enter into business partnerships for a wide variety of of very good reasons, yet fewer than 20% of partnerships last five years. While this is an American statistic, this isn’t far off the British experience. Research shows:
It is the relationship between partners and not the business plan that leads to the success or failures of a partnership venture
It’s the interpersonal and emotional dynamics that can upset a partnership – written agreements are no protection
Cathy Foster of Business Duo Coaching will take you through best practice for partnership building and maintenance, as well as breaking-up. She’ll also give you top tips to take back to your business and help you explore how wrong you can be if you make assumptions about each other’s viewpoints.
If you’re not currently in a partnership, come anyway, as the lessons to be learnt are true for any work team.
Cathy is a relationship coach, working with her business partner Neil Wilkie. They work with any two people whose crucial relationships are critical for success. Their website is www.businessduocoaching.com.
