Business Mediation

If your partnership is showing strain or breaking down completely, you can get help now. I have repaired many business partnerships using my low-stress method of bringing definition and processes to the business. Definition? We’ll define the problems in business, not personal terms. Processes? We’ll reach agreement on processes that determine who does what and how big decisions are made. We can fix most partnerships using remote video conferencing. It works and it’s very low cost. Contact me for a free consultation. All work is 100% confidential.

“You don’t have to put up with the stress that comes with partnership problems. We can fix the partnership. If it’s beyond repair we can work out a fair separation from the partnership.”

Repair Your Partnership

We can get to the bottom of your partnership issues and adopt solutions that take away the tension permanently. Having a moderator keeps the discussions calm and civil.

Negotiate a Buyout

Sometimes it’s better to leave a problem-ridden partnership. Only you know when it’s time to get out. If you’ve reached that point, let me help you avoid the serious liabilities that can come up years later. Or, it might be time to ease out a non-performing partner. Sometimes separating is the best solution for everybody.

Develop a Partnership Agreement

I rarely see good partnership agreements. Most people start businesses with friends or family members and never prepare the most important document in a partnership. Let me help you define the terms that should be in your Partnership Agreement.

You don’t have to live with the stress. Most business partnership problems can be fixed with a few video conferences. If the problems are serious and the partners agree, I will come to you and work in person. Please contact me now to arrange a free, confidential conversation about your partnership. I guarantee you will fee better after we talk.

Do Not Stop Working if You Want to Leave the Partnership
Do Not Stop Working if You Want to Leave the Partnership

When the business partnership breaks down, the darker sides of the personalities come through. A dominant partner turns into a bully. A person who does not do well with conflict will withdraw. As the bully gets more aggressive, the pacifist withdraws further. Eventually, the bully gets so angry they are ready to lock the other partner out. The pacifist quits coming in. The next blowout is over money. The course is as logically predictable as what will happen to your car if you hit the highway with no oil in the engine. It will get louder and louder until the engine seizes.

How to Draft Resolutions to Strengthen Your Partnership

I recommend that partners talk through a specific issue and then draft an agreement (called a resolution) that sets a policy. You can keep this in a binder to serve as amendments (or foundation) to your Partnership Agreement. In this post I’ll explain how to talk about things that bug you with your partner and how to draft a binding resolution to fix the problems.
