Strategic Partners aren’t out there on their own. They’re a part of a community of like-minded entrepreneurs across the globe. Officially, we meet several times a year for training and networking. Unofficially, partners get together to work on projects, bounce ideas off each other, or just have a few cold ones. Being a sole proprietor doesn’t have to be lonley.

The sky’s the limit when you partner with 360 Solutions as a Strategic Business Partner. There’s no one way to success. It’s more of a “choose your own adventure”. Your individual strengths and background often determine the best way to build your business. Still, previous partners have found success in seven ways:
Improvement only comes after knowing yourself. The P60 personality assessment is a foundational tool all of our Strategic Partners use when evaluating employees in an organization. Make it a part of your consulting services or resell it to organizations with high turnover. Use it as a way to offer value to a prospective clients.
Host workshops for organizations and individuals to learn how to transform their from traditional to High Performance. These can be limited one-time engagements or regular training programs.
Bring small numbers of business leaders or employees together as a Mastermind Group. Use the 360 Solutions curriculum as a jumping off point and let the power of collective experience improve interaction and retention of key leadership principles.
Many Strategic Partners are sought-after public speakers. Any one of our programs can make a great keynote speech. Speaking engagements enhance your visual expertise. Co-author a book with our founder, Chip Wilson, to further increase your reputation as a thought leader.
Work with organizations and clients in their facilities for interactive, hands-on development. This is the preferred method for implementing the High Performance Leadership Framework. Use our professionally produced workbooks to facilitate, or have your class use our High Performance Leadership iPad app.
Help organizations improve their performance by identifying existing organizational problems, and develop plans for improvement. Typically, organizations seek out consultants’ specialized expertise for a variety of reasons. Executive coaching facilitates professional and personal development towards specific goals.
Take employees out of the day-to-day work environment for a retreat. Studies show employees are more engaged when out of their normal surroundings.

Solid teams are the foundation of High Performance Organizations, and developing those teams takes serious effort and consistent discipline. Team development requires hard work but is extremely rewarding for those willing to pay the price. 360 Solutions builds groups into High Performing teams by helping them develop each of the fundamental building blocks of a solid team, one step at a time.
Team members need to develop a team charter, meeting norms, processes, roles, goals, measures, and action plans. Most teams find the challenge of directed development exhilarating and empowering.
They also discover that working together and making joint decisions and commitments helps them understand each other better, respect each other more, and become a closer and more focused team.
Once there is a team charter, the challenge is to close the gap between where the team is now and what it wants to accomplish and become in the future. We know that as teams apply and follow step-by-step with the team-building blocks found in this program, they will find the strength and resources to achieve their charter and goals.
They’ll know they’re a High Performing Team when they can:
We believe teams that follow these principles can make great strides toward becoming a High Performance Team if they learn how to use the tools effectively and put their heart and soul into the challenges this program presents.
When working with organizations, 360 Solutions assesses both the organization and the individual.
Just like a doctor diagnosing an illness, you first have to understand the problem before fixing it. Diagnosis comes before development of plans to improve the organizations’ health. Results are used to set a baseline for later comparison and to measure progress.
We assess in eight different areas:
Organizations can only survive if they maintain harmony with their external environment. This includes listening to customers’ needs, understanding changes in technology, knowing the competition, and understanding legal, social, and political climates.
Strategy is a set of decisions that explain how an organization adds value to its customers and distinguishes itself from competitors. A well-developed strategy tells the organization where it’s going, like a rudder in a stormy sea.
A core process is the major flow of work through an organization. Sometimes called the value chain, it is the sequence of events or steps performed by the organization to achieve its strategy and provide products and services to customers. When it is aligned with the strategy, all other business activity should support its accomplishment. Understanding, streamlining and properly supporting the core business process is the central job of any organization.
How people are organized around business processes. It’s not just the org. chart. Structure defines roles and responsibilities inside an organization. Does it help or hinder performance?
The interrelated sets of tasks or activities that help the organization coordinate work. They are usually standardized. The most effective systems are often the simplest.
Culture is how the organization really operates. It includes leadership style, worker attitudes and habits, and management practices and beliefs which make up the distinctive “personality” of the organization. It is like the air that permeates everything and is both the source and outcome of organizational behavior. Culture mirrors the true philosophy and values of the organization — the ones people actually practice. As such, it is a measure of how well the organization has translated its philosophy (organization strategy) into action.
How is the organization performing? Results show an organization’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s important to be clear about expected future results.
Leaders drive success by setting goals and monitoring results. They scan the environment, define vision and strategy, and design the infrastructure to make it all work. Successful leaders are the head of an empowered, independent workforce.

Strategy is the way an organization meets the challenges and opportunities presented by the environment. Organizations need to be able to:
As organizations prepare to compete in today’s ever-changing and challenging environment, they understand leadership is the most important theme in business training. Take a moment to think about the word “leadership.” What does it mean to you?
For our company, it’s a rich and significant word. It stirs up a sense of idealism, excitement, hope, and courage — a word that inspires us to be our best. We normally associate leadership with the most influential people in history. However, it also conjurs up memories of family members, teachers, coaches, and mentors who influenced us to reach our full potential.
When 360 Solutions builds up leaders in an organization we focus on:
The most important factors for sustaining long-term success is understanding that:
