Hi Hollie! Loved reading this. I'm a big believer in thank you notes - old school style, hand-written. But in general, my work is very word of mouth and my relationships I see as two-way...definitely not quantity over quality. 1 great relationship can cancel out 3 iffy ones. I work on strategic partnerships and collaborations for artists (with hotels, brands, etc.) so I very much related to your ideas and work. Thanks for posting! Anne

100%...So hard to quantify often and often times not celebrated. But worth it when its genuine and authentic connections, unbeatable feeling.

Hey Hollie! Thanks for sharing your experience with the Elpha community. It's really refreshing to see your 5 skills for managing and cultivating partnerships. I often feel that points like these are either overlooked or sometimes disingenuous, unfortunately. However, the simplicity of these 5 points, in combination with one another are powerful in themselves. Truly great to see the visceral component in managing and cultivating partnerships, so thank you for sharing this!

You are so right, when you think about these skills being overlooked/feeling disingenuous. Hopefully, as we continue to build communities and spaces like Elpha, we all have a voice to share the things that have worked on our unique paths. I'm excited to hearing more from this community!

I am low-key obsessed with DigitalOcean UX and community. I love the thoughtfulness and empathy with which they seem to design not only the product but also interactions with the users (through articles, resources, and microcopy). Thank you for sharing this and giving an insight into how y'all make the magic happen :)
