At the outset of this journey to go into business as partners, both you and your partner had a dream. You invested your time and your hard-earned money into making that dream a reality. But now you rarely speak and find your time and energy likely consumed by putting out fires, rather than coordinating, communicating, and planning things that your partnership needs to thrive.
The current state of affairs has left you feeling worried about the future of that dream. You may have even contemplated ending the partnership. Looking for help may be your last-ditch attempt to save it.
In your search you came across me, Dr. Dorene Lehavi, a business partnership expert, and you believe that my guidance could hold the key to saving maybe even transforming your partnership. With the tension between you the real challenge now is how to approach your partner and introduce this potential solution. Here’s a recommended 5-step approach:
- Step 1: Initiate a Heartfelt Conversation: Begin by expressing your desire to have an open and honest conversation with your partner. Let them know that you acknowledge the challenging state of your partnership and that it’s not showing many signs of improvement.
