Nurturing Partnerships



Partnership Assessments

Partnering is an ongoing process of relationship building and can be an iterative process as an organization’s mission and resources grow and change with time. Partnerships should, ideally, be fully assessed beforehand for readiness but should also be assessed for alignment once a partnership has already formed.  Assessments of established partnerships are used as a continual improvement tool.  
"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." – Mother Teresa

"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success." – Henry Ford
