Alliances are the New Leadership

I believe that the future of business is in collaboration; no company can go it alone. Working together with other organisations in strategic alliances and partnerships is the best way to develop synergy and create speed. In doing so, it enables the type of growth that can’t be realised by one company working alone. It also means that those involved need to develop new leadership skills. By developing the alliance leadership skills needed to succeed, these skills will benefit and grow not only your company,  but also your own capabilities.

Work With a Coach

Working with a coach on your alliance leadership success is much like working with a guide on a journey. As your coach I’m committed to guiding you along your journey to greater success. I will be your sounding board and will provide ideas aimed at helping you achieve your goals. As your coach, I’m independent from your organisation and I will provide you with a different, “outside in” view about yourself and about your work.

Train (Your Team)

Practice makes perfect. Would you expect a top athlete to show up without practising and perform at their best to win a game? Probably not. The same applies to employees in an organisation; we need to learn and practice skills to be able to be at peak performance for the company where we work. In our Alliance Masterclass (open registration or in-company) we teach and practice alliance-specific skills to enable you and your team to deliver stellar results within your alliances.

Keep it Healthy

Are we still on track and where can we improve? Important topics to know, yet not easy to define when you are in the middle of a collaboration. That’s where my Alliance Health Check comes in! It measures how your alliance is doing and helps you to identify possible areas for improving your alliance. The results of my Alliance Health Check are presented in a report with clearly defined areas for improvement.

Making Business Collaborations Work

Did you know that research has shown that 80% of the companies that follow a structured approach create successful strategic alliances and partnerships, while on the other hand 80% of ad hoc, unstructured alliances fail?

My work is designed to help you and your team to belong to the group of companies that report success with their strategic alliances and partnerships! In other words; I help you make your business collaborations work!

    Stéphane LucchiniMedinCellBusiness Development and Alliance Management Director
  • Peter is the coach and mentor you want by your side during those “headwind” situations, when progress seems difficult, as well as “tailwind” situations when the wind is at your back and there’s a need to sustain focus during fast paced growth.

    Janice Babia-RamosJohnson and JohnsonGlobal Marketing Director
  • Peter is extremely flexible in his approach, allowing me to guide the content and structure of the sessions, but always ensuring that he fully understands the challenges being faced. He offers sound advice and often draws on his own experiences, which adds a very useful dimension to ideation and problem solving.

    Helen MartinMedinCellStrategic Alliances Manager
  • Peter is an excellent strategic alliances and personal coach. His sharp observations, and thought provoking questions, helped me in defining a purpose-driven approach to my (professional) life.

    Jorge FernandesInnovation Executive and Strategic Advisor
  • Peter is gifted with the ability to coach executives so they can take their leadership skills to the next level. He creates a safe environment where one can openly discuss situations in which even the most experienced leader can benefit from his advice. His ability to make a given individual understand and execute on his or her opportunities to become a better leader has enabled me to perform my best and, most importantly, to guide my team through change and uncertainty.

    Andi GardnerBiogenDirector, Alliance Management & Integration
