Wednesday Wisdom – Partnerships and Collaborations

We no longer have the luxury of an abundance of  resources to stand alone.

 Success will depend on building strong and sustainable coalitions both online and up the street.  Time to stop being insular, our survival depends on it.

 Outward is the new black.

Smarter people than I have said this, but it bears repeating.

This can be hard for some organizations to understand. We are so use to standing alone, feeling alone, being alone. Seems like our own voices are the only voices we hear some days. We spend so much time crafting messages that only reach people who look like and think like us.

New voices are mandatory and new language is required. New tools must be created.

Coalition builders will be the winners.
