Business Partners Relationship Clinic
Successful commercial partnerships include many of the same requirements that successful marriages encompass, but substitute shared business objectives for intimacy. The business itself, not mutual attraction, is the reason for the relationship between partners. Over time, the demands and trajectory of the business can damage the relationship, but more likely, the relationship will damage the business. Many well-intentioned partnerships derail as the demands of making the business go and grow, begin to pile up. For this reason, planning a partnership is essential. Planning addresses equity agreement, role design, assigning authority, planning for change as the business grows, structuring communication and preparing for conflict. Each of our Business Partners Relationship Clinic programs is a hybrid of relationship counseling and industry-attuned executive coaching, customized for you and completely private. For intended business partners, our Partnership Success Planning creates clarity and structure at the outset. For others, we offer Partnership Reset as a means of resolving conflict, clearing the air, refreshing partnership rules, responsibilities and authority, and healing your relationship. For families having trouble in business together, we offer Family Business Reset. Each program is facilitated by a seasoned C-level executive coach and experienced psychotherapist.
