About the Book
The Partnership Charter is a document that clearly outlines the goals, expectations, responsibilities, and relationships of a business's principals. The charter identifies potential sources of conflict and how they can be resolved, while addressing such sensitive issues as personal styles, values, money, and power.
Illustrating every principle through engaging stories drawn from Gage's front-line experience consulting to business partners, as well as interviews with the founding partners of such successful businesses as Ben & Jerry’s, Progressive Insurance and Manpower, Inc.
The Partnership Charter dispels common myths and presents a practical framework for launching, building, and sustaining a thriving business partnership.
