How do we get started on establishing an Alliance?
Address these three questions: Who am I?...Who are you?....How can we help each other? Think about what you can do or how you can help your
teammates and colleagues to "get the job done". List the 3 best, most valuable skills you have that can make a difference. Set up small group discussions to talk about your skills. Identify at least one other teammate
and colleague who can use your skills. Start a dialog with at least one other person (maybe two?) using the best of what you know to help them achieve their goals. Share ideas about programs, procedures, and things that
have and have not worked well so that other's can re-use your "lessons learned".

possibilities. A larger awareness of needs. The satisfaction of continuous learning through others. The excitement of having more "tools" in your toolbox...more resources at hand. Your capabilities and
opportunities get bigger.

productively if you build collaborative relationships in and out of our organization that bring people together with different skills, experience, and knowledge to provide solutions and answers. The key is to
combine these energies at the right time, the right place and on the right issues and needs.
