NO ONE SUCCEEDS IN A SILO 9  Essen/al  Principles   for  Crea/ng  Successful   Partnerships by  Faisal Hoque founder  of:

Slide 1

Today's stranger may be tomorrow's partner. “It  doesn't  ma@er  how  smart  or  savvy  we  are  when   it  comes  to  technology,  product  development  or   any  single  skill.  Nobody  succeeds  in  a  silo.  Whatever   we  venture—personal,  professional,  philanthropic,   poli/cal,  or  private—we  must  remember  the  people   involved  in  and  essen/al  to  our  success.”

Slide 2

PURPOSE “Every  organiza/on  needs  to  pin  down   ‘why  we  do  what  we  do’.   That’s  the  organiza/on’s  North  Star,  guiding  every   aspect  from  product  development,  sales,  and   recruitment  of  customers  and  partners.   A  strong  purpose  drives  growth  and   profitability.”

Slide 3

PLATFORM “If  vision  is  an  expression  of   the  soul  of  a  organiza/on,   plaQorm  is  its  body.   The  assets,  whether  internal  or   external,  lend  the  organiza/on  its   capabili/es  and  character.  These   competencies  are  plaQorms,  or   assets  with  business   applica/ons.”

Slide 4

INSPIRE AND INFLUENCE “The  best  and  brightest  will  be   toppled  if  they  can’t  inspire  others.   It  takes  a  dynamic  person  with  a  posi/ve,   honest,  forward-­‐looking  aStude  to   inspire  and  influence  the  people  involved  in   building  and  growing  partnerships.”

Slide 5

Slide 6

COMMUNITY “A  business  ecosystem  is  "an  economic   community”  supported  by  a  founda/on  of   interac/ng  organiza/ons  and  individuals.   They  are  the  structure  that  surrounds  and   supports  our  businesses.  These  ecosystems,   encourage  organiza/ons  to  coevolve  their   capabili/es.”

Slide 7

COMMUNICATION “Direct  communica/on  leads  to   direc/on.   If  you  can’t  say  something  clearly  and   directly,  wait  un/l  you  can  ar/culate  it   to  yourself.”

Slide 8

THINK AHEAD “We  need  to  surround  ourselves   with  forward  thinkers.   Since  we  know  that  what  we’re  doing   today  will  change  tomorrow,  we  need  to   forge  trus/ng,  resilient  teams,  a   constella/on  of  partnerships.”

Slide 9

Slide 10

THINK LONG TERM “To  thrive  within  a  vola/le  world,  leaders  must   be  aware  of  the  present  moment  while   simultaneously  seSng  their  sights  on  long-­‐ term  goals.   Since  value  crea/on  is  qualita/ve  as  well  as   quan/ta/ve,  no  metric  can  completely   capture  success.”

Slide 11

COMFORT IN UNCERTAINTY “Partnreships  are  oXen  unpredec/ble—comfort  with   uncertain/es  provide  confidence  for  success.” SeSng  smaller  goals  offers  us  posi/ve   reinforcement  when  we  achieve  them.”

Slide 12

FLEXIBLE, ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP “Partnership  needs  changes,  leaders  need   to  keep  evolving  at  the  right  pace.   That  requires  introspec/on,  self-­‐ awareness,  and  a  keen  sense  of  strategy —both  in  the  short-­‐  and  long-­‐terms.”
