Regular communication, discussions (in person, on the phone, by email) are the key …
Ongoing relationships that enable us to stay on top of the concerns or opportunities facing a
leader … There’s no set time, no set number of meetings.
Instead, an easy working relationship so that we each are free to contact the other with
ideas, with observations, with issues as either of us identifies them, sees them, senses
them – or comes across something that sparks a concept or reflection.
We work on a retainer – either for a project or an ongoing relationship … That arrangement
provides the freedom for the open communication that allows us to do our best work.
