Growing Your Practice Through Collaborative Partnerships



I was inspired to create the talk, Growing Your Practice Through Collaborative Partnerships, after listening to podcasts and reading many leadership books in the last few years.

Through collaboration, you can amplify your strengths, shore up your weaknesses, save time and money. Shared authority, resources, and accountability between practices can help you achieve common goals that would otherwise be very difficult or expensive to accomplish.

  • Common collaboration missteps that can throw your plan off track and how to overcome barriers.
  • Leadership and partnership lessons from some of today’s business experts.
  • Common themes among Collaborative Leaders, Level 5 Leaders & Serving Leaders.
  • The essentials of OKRs – Objectives and Key Results (Andy Grove & John Doerr)
