| Pioneering the Shift
from Employee to Partner
Most people want to do the
best job they can, be well compensated for it and be recognized
and respected for their achievements and talents. They want
to have their ideas considered and appreciated and want to
feel a real sense of accomplishment and contribution in all
that they do.
We say that the path to this
experience is through ownership and accountability, which
are the fundamental building blocks of creating “partnership”.
However, accountability has been misused and abused in most
organizations. Therefore, most employees don’t recognize
the opportunity that it can afford them.
They can produce exactly what
they are looking for when they create “partnership”
with their co-workers, employees, superiors and stakeholders.
When people operate as partners they trust and respect each
other. They listen powerfully to every person they interact
with. They speak straight and authentically. They clean up
any upsets or problems responsibly. They include people in
their thinking, ideas and projects. They work accountably
When a culture of partnership
is present in any organization the best qualities of people,
their best efforts and their best work and results occur naturally.
They feel part of a company that cares for them. They experience
being part of a larger vision working in collaboration to
fulfill the shared goals of an aligned future.
Our commitment is to
a new future in the way we relate.
