Successful as a development turbo

5 Tips for finding the right success partner
An amazing cooperative basic equipment enables people to significantly increase their individual performance through the we-oriented approach. In essence, this is due to the interaction of three factors:
- Our mirror neurons allow us to recognize what the other wants.
- Through our language, we can express our thoughts in detail.
- We have the ability to cooperate with people we do not know at all.
5 Tips on how to proceed successfully to find the right co-operation partner.
1. Who is eligible?
Ideal success partners are neither best friend nor partner. Too close relationships are more of a hindrance because we communicate less goal-oriented in this constellation.
On the other hand, the combination of different backgrounds and characters has an enriching effect. You do not have to know each other very well and the professional status may differ. Even spatial distances are not relevant thanks to the communication technology.
2. The common denominator
If the expectations and goals of both partners are aligned to the future coexistence, the common denominator is formulated. A probationary period of several weeks serves to check whether the right success partner has been found.
Firmly agreed and reliably managed meetings of success partners at regular intervals clarify whether one is on the right path together. Depending on the intensity, we recommend a week or two-week cycle with a fixed time.
3. Set and maintain time frames
This rhythm promotes the actual conversation. The time frame must be pleasant for both parties. With concentrated communication, thirty minutes are generally sufficient.
The agreed time should benefit both interlocutors alike. Claiming too much of it creates an imbalance. That's why Smalltalk should not open the conversation, but rather end the conversation.
4. Structured flow chart
Statement and feedback are basic building blocks in discussions between success partners. Success partner A reports, for example, Eg, what he has been doing since the last call and may ask for feedback or ideas.
Success partner B asks and may recall agreements. Then A defines the planned steps to the next call. Now success partner B follows the same procedure.
5. Togetherness brings strength
A good network does not consist of as many contacts as possible on different platforms, but from what comes out of a connection: new ideas or knowledge extension through information exchange, but also backing, because one dared.
The fear of being stupid is the biggest obstacle to use networks more effectively. But asking for support is not a weakness. And together you are known to be strong!
