Publisher's Summary

In The Partnership Charter, psychologist and business mediation expert David Gage offers a comprehensive guide to the art of establishing and maintaining a business partnership. The centerpiece of his approach is the Partnership Charter, a document that clearly outlines the goals, expectations, responsibilities, and relationships of the principals. The charter identifies potential sources of conflict and how they will 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 Progressive Insurance Company and Manpower, Inc., The Partnership Charter dispels common myths and presents a practical framework for launching, building, and sustaining a thriving business partnership.


What the Critics Say

"This is a clear and helpful book, best for people who are considering setting up a partnership. Readers who are already in partnerships, however, may find Gage's advice useful but harder to implement. Overall, this book is a solid addition to the business guide category." (Publishers Weekly)

Excellent book for partnerships

If you could sum up The Partnership Charter in three words, what would they be?

Valuable, thought-provoking, & straightforward. As someone contemplating bringing others into my business as partners, this book was perfect. The author provided valuable, actionable material instead of just opining on their perspective. There are great example stories and the framework is easy to follow. I've listened 3x already and plan to keep this on my re-read list.
