Strategic collaboration

FB_IMG_1529520367939

One of the many lessons I have learnt about life is that all creations were designed to function through partnership because nothing can be fruitful by itself.

A tree doesn’t make a forest, so whenever you get isolated, you miss your chances of fruitfulness.

Strategic partnership exists and functions for a common purpose, with a common vision and by a common strategy and they are guided by these principles:

READINESS: There must first be the mutual readiness of the partners and each of them must be prepared and equipped for the alliance.

PURPOSE: The partners must have a common vision, interest and intersection of purpose that orchestrates the partnership.

UNDERSTANDING: There must be an acceptable depth of understanding that builds the foundation of agreement for partnership because two can’t work together unless they agree. Effective communication enhances understanding.

TRUST: Each partner must build mutual trust and have a reservoir of character, integrity and capability.

FOCUS: There must be a focus on the common interest, the vision and the goal of the partnership.

SYNERGY: Each partner must value their connection and synergize, so as to create a win-win partnership.

INVESTMENT: Partners must be willing to invest in each other and in their partnership.

EXPERTISE: Each partner must bring on board his strength, gift, knowledge, specialty and talent to grow their strategy and partnership.

Successful people everywhere understand that one is too small a number to achieve greatness, so they seek better collaboration instead of bitter competition.

It is therefore your responsibility to find your strategic partners and succeed together!

The Gift of FATHERHOOD

Every true father deserves to be honored, because the role of a father cannot be overemphasized.

A father is a source of strength and Inspiration to his children and he at all times deserves to be honored.

Everyone at one point or the other needs someone to behold- a father, a mentor, a role model.. and every father who plays these roles deserves to be honored.

The father, together with the mother should exemplify leadership, values and character for their children who in turn must learn to always honor their father and mother.

As the world celebrates the gift of fatherhood, i want to honor my dear Dad, Sir Sam Orji for being the best father there can ever be.

And to the many other father figures I have been extremely blessed with, I love and honor you all now and always.

Happy Father’s day to every father out there who is blazing the trail. May God bless and honor you!

 

Let it GO!!!

Let-it-go

One of the amazing characteristics of an eagle is “farsightedness”.

It’s sees it’s prey from miles away and swiftly moves to get it and off it goes again soaring high, but if the weight of whatever it has picked up wouldn’t allow it soar as high as it should, then the eagle must let it go!

The eagle knows that if it must maintain a high altitude, it must let go of every “heavy weight”.

So we must learn a vital lesson from the eagle and refuse to continue struggling to live and soar with loads of heavy weights.

Whatever they may be: bad habits and addictions, negative relationships and influences, negative thoughts and wrong perspectives, negative emotions and memories and lots more…

If you must soar like the eagle and maintain a high altitude in life, then you must make this one decision now:

Let it go!

 

Power of collaboration (my experience)

Very recently, a senior friend called to fix a business meeting with me, so I confirmed my availability and as we met, she informed me that she wants us to work together on a particular project.

After all said and done, I was an associate consultant on the project and a part of the team that delivered a high level teamwork and communication training for one of the foremost multinational oil companies in Nigeria.

Collaboration made it possible!

Every great feat is achievable through collaboration, because one is too small a number to achieve greatness.

We must always realize that two or more good heads are better than one and on our journey to greatness; we must be relevant and valuable and seek relevant and valuable collaborations that significantly repositions us for greatness.

 

 

Who do you flock with?

A young man, born cripple had certain friends who carried him daily to a gate that had a large influx of people going in and coming out so he could beg for alms and this routine of theirs for a long time changed nothing.

We must be intentional about our relationships and be careful of friends that are committed to seeing us remain the same, friends that make us to fail, to fall and to flutter, friends that add no value to our lives and never think of how we can get better.

We all need true friends like those who helped their paralyzed friend get to Jesus through the roof top, to receive his healing- they were committed to seeing their friend get healed and better.

True friends are rare, they are deeply committed to adding value, they speak the truth at all times, they sharpen each other and refresh each other.

So take an inventory of your relationships and ask your self, who do you flock with?
