The term “partnership” is not one we often hear in the workplace, but when we do, we can easily mistake it for teamwork - the two however, are different. Partnerships are an important component of any job, but they become critical when associates feel they are working in silos.

“Building Winning Partnerships” discusses what a partnership is and the factors that ensure winning partnerships are achieved. This course will help you understand how to establish partnerships that will equip individuals and teams with the skills they need to strengthen current working relationships and overcome workplace challenges. “Building Winning Partnerships” will also discuss the components required to achieve a successful partnership as well as provide a series of checkpoints you can review to ensure you stay on track.


Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the difference between teamwork and partnerships
  • Identify 5 partnership success factors
  • Learn how to apply 6 checkpoints as you establish your partnerships
  • Discover how to address challenges with confidence

Overall the course was okay. Not having ideas on how to make the case study a successful outcome was a bit of a disappointment. It really was a pointless case study, as it didn't really teach how to put the checklists and 5 factors that we learned about into play. It would have been nice to go through the case study and have been given examples of how Grace was able to make the "Dream Team" work and achieve or fail at their task.

Course Complexity: Intermediate
