Poor Partnerships

August 27, 2008

Strong female leaders often partner with others to reach their goals. Today’s world abounds in collaborative partnerships. Leaders must realize it is dangerous to their business to have an unhealthy or destructive partnership. In order to identify poor partnerships review this list of signs:

* The parties don’t have similar goals.
* The parties don’t share similar work ethics.
* One of the partners must compromise on their convictions.
* One of the partners benefits and one always loses.

Good partnerships do not foster co-dependence or independence but rather interdependence. The partnership multiplies the productivity of both parties.

    Thanks for this post Tracy. I think these are pertinent issues we need to keep on our radar when engaging in partnerships with other strong women entrepreneurs. I know my experience with collaborations has been very positive, thanks to the sensitivity and caring shared by female partners along with some shrewd business sense and a desire for the team to benefit as a whole.

    Thank you for your comments Erin. You are a perfect example of how a woman entrepreneur expands her horizon by partnering with other women to create new and exciting products for your business. The edible invitations you created with Jen Comfort is a shining example of how good partnerships work and benefit both individuals. I hope more women will check out your website to learn more about you and Sweet Talk Boutique products.
