THE PARTNERSHIP ECONOMY
Powered by purpose
Fueled by trust
Partnering with people for breakthrough results
Foster genuine partnerships among people in your value chain. Partnerships are not extractive or transactive, but contributive and collaborative. In a real partnership, everyone succeeds.
Put customers in focus. Organize to delight them and help them succeed. Rewire siloed thinking and dismantle bureaucracy. Engage external shapeholders to manage risks and innovate your future.
Ignite stakeholders' passion for a purpose that transcends profit. Purpose is a unique contribution to a mission that is larger and longer-term than oneself. Discover your organization's purpose and commit to it.
Live and lead from core values: do the right thing no matter the circumstance. Value the people in your stakeholder ecosystem. Earn their trust every day. This the simplest and the hardest principle of all.
