Business Partners Counseling Roadmap to Relationship Transformation

Richard Chandler, MA, LPC, Business Partners Counselor, will work with you and your partner(s) to restore your business relationship from hopeless and stalled out to revitalized, optimistic & future-focused!


Business Partners Counseling Roadmap

Phase 1 - Stabilize

We begin by stopping the relationship bleeding. We get clear on your business’s current reality. Together, we map out your unique path to partnership and business success. We apply insights from multiple assessments to reveal deeper motivations for rebuilding trust.

No Sudden Exits

  • Partners commit to relationship rebuilding
  • Reverse discouragement with fair rules of engagement

Mutual Purpose Trust-Building

  • Committing to your shared vision
  • Gaining confidence in your partner's good intentions


Assessments for Clarity

  • Understanding your partner's psychology
  • Revealing your own and each other's uniqueness

Phase 2 - Revitalize

Learn optimal communication tools that turn arguing into agreeing and distancing into productive engagement. Talk through issues that couldn't be talked about without things falling apart. Progress from facilitated crucial conversations to unmonitored ones successfully.

Partnership Communication Method

  • 3 communication rules for buy-in
  • Stop arguing and successfully engage

Discuss the Undiscussable

  • How to really listen
  • Learn to respond, not react

Communication Field Practice

  • Tools to have difficult discussions on your own
  • Debrief those conversations for course correction

Phase 3 - Thrive

We've stabilized and revitalized your business partnership; now it's time to thrive! Build momentum with advanced consensus-building communication. Lock in your progress, course-correct in the face of new challenges, and happily travel into your partnership future!

The Friction to Consensus Formula

  • Learning to account for differing perception filters
  • Searching for mutual ways forward vs. negotiating

Optimizing Strength-Based Roles

  • Identifying each partner's "right work"
  • Supercharging cooperation & rewarding collaboration

Partnership GPS

  • Go with agreement
  • Pause to consider
  • Stop. Be OK with no
