The last in a three-part series on creating effective and powerful partnerships.

Session #3: Exploring the Partnering Cycle

Working through a project cycle as a way of building and tracking a programme of work is familiar territory, but in a partnership something more is required. Systematic attention needs to be given to the changing needs of the partners and to optimizing the potential of the partnership over time. The partnering cycle is introduced as a useful framework to navigate the partnership over time and will be explored over the hour long session.

This is the last in a three-part series hosted by Jocelyn Daw that looks at the ins and outs of effective partnerships. Click for details on Session 1 and Session 2. Sessions can be purchased individually or you can register for a three-session package (for the price of two!)


Series: Building Effective Partnerships by Investing in the Partnering Process

Now more than ever, the world has become increasingly complex. The world’s challenges are so interconnected that a collaborative approach is needed to tackle the various social, economic and political challenges that impact our communities.

Signing an agreement to partner is relatively straightforward, but partnering effectively is significantly more challenging than partners often realize. Paying attention and investing quality time in the partnering process itself is critical to success. Effective collaboration requires common understanding across partners, collective leadership, and strong process and relationship-management. With these critical elements in place, partnerships can thrive and be successful. Without them, partnerships are likely to under-perform or fail altogether.

These lunch and learns are suited for non-profit professionals who are thinking about entering the partnership space and those with partnership experience who wish to deepen their understanding of the partnership process.

Join ECVO in for three introductory lunch 'n' learn events that will help strengthen your skills and practices in creating effective and powerful partnerships.
