Why Community Partnerships are Important!

Leadership

Community partnerships are leader’s collectives. 


Aligned Vision

Each partner must be pursuing the same essential goal. This does not mean they are committed to the same outcomes, approach, values systems and the like. But it must be moving in the same general direction. One partnership consisting of one group seeking to create a community sculpture park and another hoping to win a grant for a water cistern is unlikely to work, for example.


Roles, Responsibilities and Accountability

 Delineating clear roles for participating members and their responsibilities alleviates confusion and streamlines the group’s effectiveness. Additionally, clear roles and responsibilities create channels of accountability. When partners understand how their contributions add value to the overall effort, and can see whether others are meeting their roles, it creates opportunities to provide accountability.


Framework for Culture and Values

Especially important for partnerships tackling a bigger, longer term issue, developing a framework for, well, how the group works, is crucial. Roles and responsibilities can be contained here, but the framework generally covers items like meeting ground rules, decision-making, behavioral expectations, conflict resolution, and overall goals and purpose.


Communication

Strong and consistent feedback loops grease the skids of understanding and progress. It’s also one of the easiest things to achieve, especially today with the proliferation of smart phones and social media.
