Engaging in Community & Building Partnerships
It is vital to your success in business to not only originate but grow and maintain strategic partnerships with other organizations in your community. These partnerships will help grow your network and create strong alliances among those who choose to work together and most importantly partners can advocate for your organization as well as contribute their own contacts, skills, talents and assets, allowing you to broaden your social impact and company services. Keep in mind, partnerships with other organizations take time, effort and energy, but will in the end achieve a greater return on social capital and community brand perception. Partnerships should be formed strategically, based on the value the partnership brings to your organization and your clients.
