# 1 - Create a clear end result and vision of success for this project. What are you wanting to create together? Why are you doing this? (Note: lack of clarity on this can create a lot of divergence as you go.) How will you know that you will have been successful with this?
#2 - Be proactive and don’t assume. In the remote space, at the best of times, we see each person’s world in a small box. This may not be representative of everything that is on the go.
#3 - Plan it. Take time as a partnership to ask yourselves, what’ important about this? What are you wanting to achieve?
What are your strengths? What are the gaps between the strengths of your partnership?
Find common ground as well as differences. What are the areas we foresee might be challenges? What can we do to mitigate against those?
#4 - Be proactive with communication and ensure you do this on a regular basis. Shift your mindset to one of “of course” to “What should I communicate?” Given that it’s likely we are under-communicating rather than over-communicating.
