Some tips for making partnering work are:
1. Spend time upfront discussing expectations, strengths, vision and where you want to go with your work/project.
2. Look at where overlap and gaps may exist.
3. Create a plan together with specific accountabilities, responsibilities and feedback loop.
4. Discuss how you want to operate as a team.
I often receive requests from coaches for coaches who are interested in reaching out to the group coaching community. I wanted to share with you on such request as a Marketplace Opportunity. This is from Coach Fiona MacNeil who writes:
"Calling All Group Coaches!
Hi, my name is Fiona MacNeil. I'm looking for several experienced group coaches who want to create an affiliate marketing partnership. If you offer international/virtual group coaching, I have 300K followers on Facebook who'd love to meet you!
All coaches are invited to send me a "Friend Request" on Facebook. Please send me a private
message with a bit of information about you and your business goals. I look forward to making new
friends and discovering new opportunities!"
You can reach Fiona via Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/CoachFiona.
If you have an opportunity you want to share with the group coaching community as a marketplace opportunity, please contact me. (Please note that I am not responsible for, or connected to, any business results related to these marketplace opportunities I pass on unless specifically identified.)
Questions to consider:
What partnership opportunities exist for you right now?
What more in your business can you create through partnerships/synergies?
What are your expectations around partnerships? What do you bring to the table that is unique?
What will make your partnership excel?
Have a great week,
