Title: Developing Partnerships

Developing Partnerships Cultivating Resources
for Your Program
  • Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook
  • Chancellor
  • Flex Workshop February 4, 2009

  • The only way to make it in life is to get up,
    get out, and do it.
  • Susana Bernacchi,
  • from the Internet

Identify resources by
  • Getting outside of your comfort zone
  • Knowing whats available
  • Looking at the bigger picture
  • Not being afraid to try
  • Askingaskingasking

So, how do you do that? You set the stage!
  • Whats your vision?
  • Whats your mission?
  • How do you plan and build your case?
  • Whats your timeline?
  • Whats your strategy?
  • What support is there for you?
  • Do you know how to network?
  • What support do you need to get it done?

State Your Vision.
Whats your vision?
  • A vision requires a visionary, someone who can
    see what may become possible if only one or two
    things fall into place. The visionary, who is
    usually but not always the leader, has to
    look at existing events for his or her group and
    be able to say, We can do a lot better and a lot
    different if X and Y can be made to happen.

A Vision Comes from Three Places Inside of You!
  • Experience
  • Experience lets you visualize from the way you
  • Knowledge
  • Knowledge lets you visualize from what youve
  • Imagination
  • Imagination helps turn randomness into a vision.

A vision links the present to the future.
  • There is an old saying, The future is now, and
    whoever first said it probably had vision in
  • A vision is a bridge between the present and the
    future Because enterprises are increasingly
    complex, you can easily lose focus while youre
    caught up in the pressures of simply getting the
    job done.
  • A vision moves and organization and its people
    beyond the status quo and keeps everyone sharply
    focused on why they are doing what theyre doing
    in the first place
  • The vision sustains and constantly renews
    commitment, keeping the department moving toward
    the future, focused on new ideas and services,
    and enables people to contribute not only to the
    operation of the department but to its progress
    as well.

A vision is based on reality.
  • Having a vision when you have little or no hope
    of bringing it to reality doesnt do you much
    good. All successful visions begin with a sober
    assessment of the strengths and resources. Those
    strengths include
  • People
  • Capital
  • Location
  • Network
  • Partners
  • Previous successes
  • Perception and reputation
  • Ability to change

A vision is not short-term.
  • A vision is something that will carry you through
    the achievement of several short-term goals, to
    achieve some sort of enduring greatness or
    distinction, something for which your group or
    enterprise will be known and remembered.
  • Every vision is different because its based on
    the experiences, strengths, and resources of the
    person having the visions.
  • But all visions should be the same in that they
    are a challenge a call to action to the
    people who will formulate a plan to execute the

A vision is a reminder of why you joined the
  • You cant gain the commitment of followers for
    long without a vision. Inevitably, things go
  • A vision reminds everyone why they are members or
    your group.
  • A vision tells people that, no matter what
    happens, their efforts are worthwhile.
  • By supplying a vision, a leader can hold a group
    together, even when things dont go as planned.
  • The group accepts that whatever barriers with a
    confidence they can overcome those barriers.

A vision attracts commitment and energizes
  • People need a significant challenge, something
    they can commit to that is worthy of their best
  • Getting People to make an emotional investment in
    the pursuit of an incremental gain in quarterly
    profits is never easy, but people are willing,
    even eager, to commit voluntarily and completely
    to something they perceive as truly worthwhile.
  • Every enterprise faces obstacles in its
    development and growth, but with a shared vision,
    people will willingly persist and do what is
    necessary to turn an idea into a successful

And, what a moment that is!
  • A vision depends on the ability to create a plan,
    the ability to create a team, and the ability to
    meld the two into an organization that can bring
    success to the marketplace.

A vision helps you stay ahead of the game.
  • A good leader, while managing in the present, is
    always looking ahead to see what threats are just
    over the horizon, and what opportunities are
    there, as well.
  • Vision is a kind of distant, early-warning radar
    that is set two steps into the future, like a
    chess player anticipating his response to all the
    possible moves an opponent may make, and knowing
    the outcome of the move after that as well.
  • Good leaders train themselves to keep looking
    outward the horizon and beyond it, while
    maintaining a firm linkage to the present and to
    reality. Keep your eye on the target, but pay
    attention to detail.

Keep the vision simple.
  • After it is spoken, or put down on paper, the
    vision should inspire an Aha! or But, of
    course! from whomever is asked to help make the
    vision a reality.
  • One obvious indicator of whether you want someone
    on your team to help make your vision a reality
    is how quickly he or she can grasp both the
    uniqueness and the obviousness of your vision.
  • If you have to convince them, move on to someone

A vision depends on the ability to clearly state
your vision develop plans to get there.
  • As you go from an idea or a dream to a vision,
    you will slowly begin the process known as
  • The purpose of planning is to answer this
    question What should we be doing and how should
    we do it?
  • To give any organization its best possible chance
    of success, you must develop an idea, within the
    knowledge and experience of the team, and within
    the context of its marketplace where it is now
    and where its likely to be five years from now.
  • That plan will determine whether your vision is
    doable, and whether it can become a reality.
  • As youre doing your research, youre beginning
    to know what types of knowledge, you dont have,
    and what knowledge and experience will be
    essential to making your vision into a reality.

Examples of Vision Are Many at COC
The GO! Program
  • 5 week, 100 online courses
  • All transfer level courses taught by 15
  • For Fall 2008 we offered 26 sections with an
    average class size of 31, which exceeds the
    overall average class size
  • For Spring 2009 we will be expanding the number
    of offerings as well as departments participating

The PAL Program
  • An intensive cohort model covering three sections
    of either Math or English with the same
  • English and Math sequences are paired with
    Counseling classes to provide additional support
    to students
  • This Fall we have 4 Math cohorts and 2 English
    cohorts at both VLC and CCC and during the day
    and evening
  • We look forward to increased retention of
    students progressing through this coursework
  • For Spring 2009, based on feedback from our
    faculty, we will be revising the format to be two
    8 week courses still using the cohort model and
    pairing with Counseling classes

Academic Support for Athletes
Mike Sanders, Athletic Counselor
Institute of Teaching and Learning/Associate
Program Award
  • At the January 12th Board of Governors meeting
    in Sacramento, College of the Canyons was one of
    six colleges recognized by the BOG. We were one
    of two that received the Exemplary Program Award
    showcasing our Institute for Teaching and
    Learning (ITL) and our Associate Program (AP)!

GET Lab Tech
  • The GET Lab Tech is designed to train entry level
    lab technicians for cross disciplinary jobs. 
  • The curriculum development and some of the
    equipments is funded from an Industry Driven
    Regional Collaborative grant (IDRC). 
  • The majority of equipment is being purchased with
    the Department of Commerce grant. 
  • The program requires high end laboratory
    equipment such as a scanning electron microscope,
    atomic force microscope and other sophisticated
    lab equipment. 
  • The new lab will be in Aliso Lab.
  • It is anticipated to begin in fall 2009.

Clarify Your Mission.
Next Whats your mission?
  • The mission you create is the path to your team
    attaining its getting to its vision
  • Dont define and target an untakeable hill.
    The cost is too high.
  • Approach your mission incrementally. Do many
    small things well, and youll have a big success.
  • Bring your group into mission development and
    planning at an early stage. Listen to what they
    have to say, and make the modifications you need
    at the start.
  • Work to get ownership of the mission from
    everyone in the group. Your followers are going
    to do the heavy lifting, so they have to know
    what theyre in for once the efforts begin.
  • Make certain that you have a point of no
    return. If the mission is not going well, know
    how far you can go and still regroup. Youre not
    General Custer and leading shouldnt be the
    Battle of the Little Bighorn.
  • Lead people manage events. Keep your troops

Develop a Plan.
Move from an idea to a plan
  • Why should anyone buy your idea?
  • Will it last? Is it enduring or a fad?
  • Can it be profitable?
  • Can it be implemented? Is it doable?
  • Will this help you move toward your vision?
  • Will doing this satisfy your needs or someone
  • How will you do it?
  • Whats the WOW factor for you!

What do you need to move forward?
  • Department plans.

  • Learn more about who you are serving (students,
    transfer, institutions, companies, community
  • Get feedback about their needs and preferences.
  • Conduct frequent surveys.
  • Determine where you want your customers
    involved. (Dont ask for input if you dont
    intend to use it.)
  • Develop simple written plans.

  • Make sure yours is current and clear.
  • Set a definitive strategic direction. What are
    you going from and to?
  • Let others know.
  • Invite comments and feedback. Cultivate a spirit
    of openness.
  • Keep an open mind. Feedback from departments you
    dont think have a comment, may help the most.

  • Speed Make sure information flows between
  • Flexibility Keep an open mind. Dont become a
    dictum of your own structures.
  • Innovation Back new ideas and act quickly.
    (Strategize, approve, process.)

Designing Your Goals
  • Planning and persistence are key factors in
    ensuring that the goals you set will be achieved.
    Here are some things to consider as you design
    your goals
  • Determine in advance the benefits of your goals,
    to yourself and to the organization.
  • Be prepared to sell others on the benefits of
    your goals.
  • Dont be afraid to enlist others to help you
    achieve your goals.
  • Be patient but persistent as you work toward your
  • Believe in yourself, and in your ability to
    attain your goals.

Setting Goals
To get things done its important to set goals,
but what is the difference between a good goal
and one that misses the mark? The best goals
  • Few in number, specific in focus
  • Not too hard, not too easy
  • Mutually agreed upon, with others who will work
    toward the goal
  • Visualized and written down
  • And when it comes to deciding exactly what goals
    to focus on, ask yourself these questions
  • What actions give you the greatest impact?
  • What one thing will you do differently? How will
    you keep your commitment to doing that one thing?

What is the structure to do so?
  • Online Program Planning Forms
  • Concentric Circle Model
  • Analyze secondary effects of decisions.
  • Zero Defects Model
  • Anticipate and plan for unexpected outcomes.

How do you get started?Analyze your
organizations capacity for leading change.
Organizational Infrastructure
See the big picture first!
  • Bloated bureaucracy
  • Entrenched culturemired in the past
  • Getting the sequence wrong
  • Zero defects analysis
  • A way of thinking and doing that reinforces the
    fact that we should do things right the first
  • As we do, we increase staff self-confidence and
    morale and enhance customer satisfaction.
  • Trying to do too much before youve done the
  • Slowing downclogging momentum

Zero Defects AnalysisGetting it Right First
  • Defects have significant costs
  • Time,
  • Money,
  • Resources,
  • Lost opportunities,
  • Unnecessary snafus, and
  • Lost reputations.

Zero Defects was coined by Phillip Crosby in
his 1979 book, Quality is Free.His Position
wasWhere there are Zero Defects, there are
no costs associated with issues of poor quality
hence quality becomes free something we can all
  • Zero Defects is
  • A way of thinking and doing that reinforces the
    fact that we should do things right the first
  • As we do, we increase staff self-confidence and
    morale and enhance customer satisfaction.

Zero Defects is a philosophy or a mentality.
Its not a program because there are no distinct
rules to abide by.Hence it is applicable to any
situation business, profession, or industry evant
or plan.
Zero Defects is not about being perfect. It is
about changing your perspective.What are some
  • Zero Defects does this by demanding that you
  • Recognize the cost of processes
  • Continuously think of where glitches and flaws
    can occur
  • Work to address these flaws
  • Anticipate and
  • Dont assume.

  • Zero Defects is a standard against which any
    system, process, or outcome can be analyzed.

  • Zero Defects is the best way for us to resolve
    the discord before the slack we cut for ourselves
    and what we expect of others.

  • People who will cheer you on and work behind the
    scenes for you.

How do you get started? Build and Use networks.
Networking Why Do It?
  • Helps others understand what we do and what in it
    for them.
  • Builds bridges and connections
  • To resources,
  • To expertise, and
  • To opportunities for our students.
  • Helps us leverage what we have with what others
    have (and perhaps dont know they have) and
    enable us to create something greater than either
    (any) of us could do alone.

  • Helps us to think beyond our own boundaries and
    structures to other possibilities that create
  • Creates an awareness of what were doing.
    (Keller, Attitude is Everything Once you state
    your intention, providence follows.).
  • Enhances possibilities that what you want to
    occur will occur.
  • Opens doors to more opportunities.

How Do you Get Started?
  • Know where you want to end up (what the
    results/outcomes should/could be).
  • Indentify internal external stakeholders
    (partners in your effort).
  • Figure out who knows who can open doors.
  • Articulate (succinctly) your vision and desired
  • Ask for what you want.
  • Let people knowyour possibilities will grow.

There are many ways in which a person can
  • Develop informal contacts with men and women
    inside ones college
  • Develop informal contacts with men and women
    outside ones college
  • Telephone others
  • Referring others for help and information
  • Join professional organizations
  • Shadow someone/some place in the community

What can you expect to achieve or see as positive
outcomes of building a network?
  • Professional advancement
  • Opportunities to further develop their skills
  • A professional network
  • A safe environment in which to try out new
  • A greater understanding of the profession
  • A reciprocity of skills
  • A support system
  • Deepened self-confidence
  • Visibility on campus and in the community
  • Results

Networking Made Easy
  • One of the most important skills you can develop
    to enhance your career is networking, that is,
    taking time to connect with others who share your
    professional interest. Here are field-tested
    ways to connect with others
  • Call individuals doing work you admire. Most
    people are willing to speak to another person who
    shows an interest in their work, job, or
    opinions. Often called informational
    interviewing. This can be a viable way for you
    to develop lasting professional contacts. Be
    sure to ask for referrals of other individuals
    the interviewer recommends you contact.
  • Develop your contact list. At the end of the
    day, think about who you met at work, lunch, or
    after work. List them in your database with
    information about what they do, their interests,
    and so on. Plan a follow-up breakfast or lunch
    with someone youve met to get to know them
    better. By developing your contacts, they will
    be there when you need them.
  • Join professional associations. Its easy to
    compile an excellent source of professional
    contacts in your community by joining
    professional associations that interest you.
    Such groups typically host monthly meetings and
    annual conferences that allow you to develop an
    even broader array of contacts.
  • Write articles for trade and industry journals.
    Not only will you feel good to see your work in
    print, but youll dramatically raise your profile
    both inside and outside your organization.
  • Dont be afraid to use your professional network
    to seek referrals and additional contacts. In
    fact, calling on others will tend to strengthen
    relationships and increase the likelihood that
    they will call on you for help as well.

What You Shouldnt Do. . .
  • Assume
  • Who is interested
  • Who knows what
  • Who is already a supporter
  • Give up
  • Judge yourself too harshly
  • Fail to do your homework
  • History
  • Structure
  • Rules regulations
  • Relationships
  • Fail to use manners

Networking Why Do It?
  • It gets results
  • University Center
  • Customized training for businesses
  • Noncredit Program
  • Clinical Education Center
  • Canyon Country Campus
  • Del Valle Fire Training Facility
  • Nursing Collaborative
  • Create Grant
  • Reinstatement of Football at COC
  • Cougar Flats Field Station

Communication and Networking Tips
  • Improve the quality, not just the quantity, of
    your communication. More communication is not
    necessarily better communication.
  • Communicate sooner rather than later. Dont wait
    for problems to occur head them off before they
    have a chance to develop.
  • Find out the way each person prefers to
    communicate. Some people communicate best on the
    phone, others face-to-face or via e-mail.
  • Dont be a slave to your desk. Meet and network
    with others on their own turf.
  • Keep up with technology. There are more ways to
    communicate than ever before. Stay on top of the
    latest developments.

    responsibility, and strengthen communities.
  • Students can make valuable contributions to the
    world as they gain challenging educational
  • Service Learning increases community involvement
    and strengthens leadership skills through direct

What's the glue that holds it all together?
The most important ingredient in enhancing
resources is relationships!
Do people/businesses/entities trust you/your
  • Are you a person of integrity?
  • Do you play fairly (no surprises)?
  • Are you genuine and straightforward in your
  • Do you follow through?
  • Can you be counted on to help in the relationship
    on both good and less than stellar times?
  • Can you admit your mistake, take responsibility
    for it, then move on?

If you cant or dont, your relationships wont
thrive because people cant count on you to be
consistent, honest, and fair and therefore, they
cant depend on you.
What about leadership?
  • Personal Power It is all about your
  • Charisma,
  • Passion to achieve,
  • Strength of your convictions,
  • Ability to communicate and inspire, and
  • Leadership skills.

    develop at work,

  • The perception of the college in the community
    (our reputation).

  • Your reputation a a leaser in your department,

  • You will return with a renewed faith and
    confidence in your ideas.
  • Changes need a support base and encouragement
    from colleagues to dare to try their ideas. The
    insights of people who are not directly involved
    are an invaluable resource to change.

    organization, provides perspective.

  • Feel survival is in own hands
  • Have important work to do sense a clear purpose
    and are communicated to achieve that purpose

    come to a dead stop.

  • Leadership often focuses on seemingly mundane
    tasks raising profitability, fixing a problem,
    expanding the membership of a group, or winning a
  • Any of these things can be done without belief.
  • They are, after all, just tasks that can be
    mastered by hard work and discipline. And people
    will often decide that its in their own best
    interest to provide the hard work needed to
    accomplish a task, without the pushing and
    prodding of a leader, if only to see something
    through to completion.
  • But for a group to truly move forward to
    achieve a higher purpose takes a commitment by
    the group to the leaders vision. What is yours?

    with your ideas, and even if they do, it may take
    some time to bring them around to your way of

    can wait for someone to empower you to take
    action, or you can empower yourself. You have
    the power within yourself to be as active a
    participant as you want to be. Its simply a
    matter of taking initiative to speak up and to
    involve yourself in the groups discussions and
    activities. Here are tips for empowering
    yourself as a member of a team
