Writing with a partner requires alignment of purpose. Together, partners must ask themselves What are we trying to achieve? They must articulate the why (purpose) and the what (goals) that establish the foundation for the partnership. Partners can explore concepts independently, then collaborate to discuss their ideas, negotiate divergent concepts, and confirm tactics. Collaboration keeps partners from taking parallel or duplicative paths that would inhibit progress.
No project can be fully realized until partners develop trust in one another. Trust implies that there are no hidden agendas and that concerns are discussed openly. Exploring conflicts, either perceived or real, is essential to achieving resolution and reinforcing the goals of the partnership. Maintaining their focus on the purpose keeps the partners on track, and confident as they advance the project. Organizing content and establishing milestones for celebration keep the partners aligned, committed, and enthusiastic.
