PQ – Partnering Intelligence
The concept of Partnering Intelligence can be attributed to work by Steve Dent in the 1990’s and outlined in his book ‘Partnering Intelligence: Creating Value for Your Business by Building Smart Alliances’.
Partnering Intelligence is based on six elements that make up a behaviour-based system that results in an environment conducive to building trust and creating mutual beneficial relationships. It is important to be ‘fluent and fluid’ in all six attributes in order to reap the benefits since the six elements build on and reinforce each other. The six elements are
Trust: The foundation of all relationships. Without trust, there is no communication. Without trust there is no win-win. Trust is the basis for all healthy and productive relationships.
Win-Win Orientation: The ability to resolve interpersonal conflicts and solve problems using win-win strategies.
Self-Disclosure and Feedback: A clear and constant exchange of information and feelings.
Comfort with Interdependence: The ability to relinquish control and include others in the decision-making process and rely on them for the completion of tasks.
Comfort with Change: The ability to do different things and do things differently, in addition to adapting to your partner’s changing needs.
Future Orientation: Working together toward a common vision and set of goals based on a plan that is mutually developed and agreed upon.
