Partner-first mindset

Partnerships isn't a department – its a strategy that must flow from every single department.

For partnerships to work, you need to have the tough conversations within every department about how partnerships will accelerate growth.

Building a partnership-first mindest isn't easy, but it is possible. Justin Graci of HubSpot spells out the steps to build a partnerships-first framework into the core structure of your org.

The partner-first mindset starts with:

  • Defining the rules of engagement with partners
  • Talking with leaders and becoming an advocate for partnerships
  • Training partners and direct reps on the value they bring

Quote of the Day

Sixty to 80% of our content should come from the voice of someone else. We should just be there to empower them to take their expertise, their stories, and their experience, and turn that into something that someone can use to learn to be motivated to get to an outcome – whatever that might be. – Mark Kilens, via PartnerUp Pod #78
