Want a Successful Business Partnership? Don’t Withhold.

Want a Successful Business Partnership? Don’t Withhold.

Successful partners keep an open line to each other. They keep each other informed and up to date. When someone gossips about your partner to you, you ask them, “I’m not sure why you are telling me this. Have you already mentioned it to my partner?”

Don’t get caught up in gossip, especially if someone tells you it is confidential.

Successful partners share relevant information and possible solutions with each other. Their intention is clear: to create successful outcomes, not hoard the information to look good at some later time.

Successful partners share their emotions with each other. They say things like. “I’m concerned. Maybe you are too. Let me tell you how I feel about our meeting earlier today. I want to get something off of my chest about something you said about my project. When you said, we need to scrap the project without talking to me first, I felt upset. Can you understand why your comments upset me?”

The Bottom Line

Successful partners don’t harbor grudges or resentments. They know how they feel and are committed to eliminating or reducing the tension that they experience by talking it out. Withholds lead to resentments. Saying what’s on your mind leads to clarity and problem solving.

  • Don’t withhold information.
  • Don’t keep secrets.
  • Don’t keep your feelings to yourself.
  • Don’t keep stories that other people tell you about your partner to yourself. Don’t keep solutions to yourself.
