Miles Nadal's 12 Principles of Partnership
A Core Part of My Values and Beliefs for Successfully Selecting a Partner
We believe the following principles provide Peerage with a sustainable point of differentiation and a durable competitive advantage in the marketplace.
We also believe that by following these principles, we select better partners who deliver superior, sustainable, profitable growth and optimize value for all stakeholders.
Only partner with people you like, admire, and respect.
Only partner with people you want to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner with, a second time.
Only partner with people with whom you want to spend a long weekend on a small boat, in a small cabin, on a small ranch, or in a small RV.
Only partner with people you trust enough to make the executor of your estate.
Only partner with people who have large craniums, big candle power, and great judgement.
Only partner with people who have the human compassion gene. If you don't want to give time, talent, and treasure to the benefit of others, you are very selfish. Compassionate leaders motivate and inspire their employees to reach beyond their own self-imposed limitations.
Only partner with people who share the same passion, dedication, and willingness to sacrifice for the common mission. Remember, “consistency is more important than intensity.”
Only partner with people who are kind to animals; if you are mean to your dog, you have no humanity.
Only partner with people who understand that God gave you two ears and one mouth in proportion for a reason, and use them accordingly.
Only partner with people who understand arithmetic. If you can't count, and you can’t meet time-bound and measurable objectives, you have no business to be in business.
Only partner with people who are good communicators. If you’re not a good communicator, you won’t be able to successfully navigate the ebbs and flows of the challenges of the partnership over time.
Only Partner with people who bring “Who Luck “.
As Jim Collins said in the book Good to Great, “Who Luck” is the luck of finding the right mentor, partner, teammate, leader, or friend.
The best way to sustain a strong current of good luck is to associate with great people and build strong relationships with them.
When luck turns bad, they will be there to help out. When times are good, they will share unselfishly. This is what building a professional partnership network is all about.
In challenging situations instead of asking what should I do, ask who do I know who can help me? The power of proximity creates “who luck” !
I have had the thrill of having extraordinary partners who bring a large amount of “Who Luck”. It seems everywhere I turn, people are eager to always help me.
