"Kristi spoke on Presentation Skills for our annual OPEN Forum and not only was the room completely full, but each participant...complimented Kristi and us on a very well planned and highly motivational session. Kristi is smart, articulate and engages her audience in a way we have seldom seen other speakers do. She is extremely energetic, inspiring and very knowledgeable about the subject matter."

Partnership Charter Facilitation

You've created a legal partnership to start your business, but what about potential areas of future conflict? How well do you really understand each other? What are your different work styles? How do you treat each other? How clear is your business arrangement? Do you share a common, powerful vision?

Crafting a Partnership Charter can help you and your partners avoid the unanticipated pitfalls of partnership, and plan for your success. The process allows you to talk about difficult, sensitive issues and create guidelines and structures for how to handle them before they turn into crises. This is work that can be done at the start of a partnership, or even after partners have worked together for years.

Using the DiSC assessment and the book, The Partnership Charter: How To Start Out Right With Your New Business Partnership (Or Fix The One You’re In), we design and facilitate a retreat (or a series of shorter meetings) that allows partners to discuss issues like personal styles and values, mutual expectations, fairness, and conflict resolution. We work with you to create clarity about money, vision, governance, ownership, and control. The end result, your Partnership Charter document, is your unique set of conclusions and understandings committed to paper.
