Today I’m thinking about collaboration – part three of my simple triad of business success:
When I set up my one-woman business I knew it would be really important to create strong collaborative relationships to support me and help my business to thrive.
Collaboration for me comes in many shapes and sizes – I’d like to share just three.
COLLABORATION # 1
🐝 Support and coaching from a critical friend. Sandra Norval, Managing Director of Catalicity has been my coach for the past year, and I’ve been Sandra’s coach – a win-win collaboration of mutual support.
COLLABORATION # 2
🐝 Sharing complementary skills. I have just started to work with Jane Midwinter, ex-headteacher and coach. We’ll be delivering some training together next week and we’re talking about future projects too.
COLLABORATION # 3
🐝 Developing large-scale projects. Sometimes turning a big idea into reality means bringing a team together. I’m doing just that with some other associates from always possible – watch this space for more on this in the come months.
