At the earliest stages in developing a collaborative relationship our consultants assist you to take the first critical steps and gain some early wins.
Establishing trust is one of those early wins. Trust is a cornerstone of business and key to sustaining collaborative behaviour. Our consultants assist you to make progressive steps in establishing a trusting relationship and exploiting mutual opportunities.
With guidance and coaching, business success is achieved by improving your behaviours that foster trust, and support the collaborative relationship.

Selecting collaborative partners
We are specialists in helping organisations to identify partners that have high collaboration potential. Our tailored behavioural assessments offer clients the chance to observe and work with future partners on collaborative projects, increasing the likelihood accurate selection and successful long-term collaborative relationships.
With our guidance and coaching, clients form part of the assessment team and gain invaluable insights to how potential partners collaboratively solve problems and align on key issues.
Our experience includes a multi-day supply chain selection in the oil and gas sector.
Developing collaborative maturity
We guide clients to develop their collaboration strategy and coach their people to recognise and adopt the behaviours that create business success for all. We focus equally hard on the processes and leadership which underpin sustainable collaboration and deliver the value creation our clients seek.
Our expertise in each stage of the process from partner selection through to collaborative performance measurement makes People Positive a long-term partner for the duration of a contract.
We have a successful track record in aligning partners in major infrastructural projects. In particular, our work on joint venture leadership and governance has enabled partners to make rapid progress in developing shared values and a common view of the collaborative culture they wish to create.
We place an emphasis on the development of trust between partners and explore those behaviours which underpin or threaten this fundamental element of collaborative working. As a starting point we help clients to recognise that trust requires an organisation to be “trustworthy” in itself and “trusting” of those it seeks to partner with. We know that measuring levels of trust is an essential indicator in any strategy to enhance collaborative working.
Our experience in construction, rail, utilities and oil and gas covers alignment of joint ventures; exploration of collaborative opportunities, and creating the conditions for a successful collaboration. People Positive delivered one of the earliest and most successful collaborations in the oil and gas sector – the Sub Sea Vertical Alliance.
