Group Exercise #1 • Individually, complete the cross-sector partnership assessment form. • Come back together as a group, and identify the following: – What is your team’s answer to each question? – Which questions did team members answer differently? – Which answers surprised you?
What do your answers mean? Let’s go over them together!
Round Robin! • Which questions did team members answer differently? • Which answers surprised you?

Group Exercise #2 • Compare your cross-sector partnership’s traits and behaviors to the traits we just went through. • Where were things aligned and misaligned with the model? • What are your interpretations of why that is? (Try and identify at least 3 interpretations of why that could be). • What are 2-3 things you can commit to trying to do in order to strengthen your partnership?
Final Round Robin! What is one thing that you site is going to commit to trying to better strengthen your cross-sector partnership’s structure/behaviors?
