willing to partner
The will of the individual is compelling, collective will is resolute. Diversity is a strength, not a weakness. Black and white, left and right, apples and oranges, even the most unlikely partnerships are greater than the sum of their constituent parts. A partner must be willing to listen and not only be heard, communication. They are as loyal when accepting criticism as they are humble when receiving praise, dedication. A willing partner focuses not on the black, nor the white, but on the silver lining.
It’s easy to get along on the good days, when things are going well and according to plan. Throw a wrench into that plan – a change of scope, a schedule delay, a disagreement among consultant firms – and those that embody this trait rise immediately to the top. These are the people that seem to have a sixth sense. They have a unique vision and ability to see through the challenges and disagreements and find the common ground. They are builders of consensus and bridges to the gaps among a team or within a working relationship. In the pursuit of a common goal, this trait recognizes those who know a strong partnership is the key to success.
