Whether it is with a friend, spouse, family member, client, or service provider, a true partnership is built on a number of factors… the most important if these is trust.
What does trust look like in a professional relationship, let’s say for instance, your Event Technology Management company. Ask yourself these questions when evaluating whether or not there is trust between the two parties:
1) Can I share my budget with them and feel comfortable knowing that they will spend my money as if it is their own?
2) Can I sleep at night knowing that there is no way they would ever let me down? At the end of the day, execution far outweighs price.
3) When something goes wrong, are they pointing fingers or are they offering solutions to remedy the situation ASAP, even if it is not their area of expertise?
4) Do they trust me?
If you can answer yes to these questions, you probably have a very good partnership and can rest easy that you are getting a quality product for a fair price, and that you are working with someone that is as invested in the project as you are. Knowing you can trust the people you surround yourself with will not only allow you to be successful, it will save you a lot of energy and stress.
