When you have a partner, you are far more concerned with their success than if they were merely a client. A client is someone that hires you to perform a service, but a partner is someone you work alongside with to achieve the greatest possible good.
Its a situation where the ultimate successful outcome is a win-win, with usually a couple of tertiary side wins as well (such as the community or the environment).
The negative fall out is the flip of that. Everybody loses, including the side players… the school, the event, the public, the town’s economy.
So, let’s work to build partnerships. We all thrive in those working conditions.
