Partner Cultural Awareness

 

Click here to listen to this video as a podcast.

Seek to understand the seven attributes of organizational culture: Mission, Practice, People, Governance, Financial Capacity, Tradition and Institutional History. 

Consider how you introduce elements of your organization's culture to new and long-standing partners as your organization changes over time. 

Assess the gaps in your understanding of a partner's culture and the benefit of learning more.

Discussion Questions:

1. Describe three cultural attributes of one partner that serve to strengthen collaboration.

2. Describe two cultural attributes of one partner that differ from your organization. How do these differences benefit the partnership?

3. How do you express the value of these attributes to your colleagues within your organization and to other partners?
