Thought partnership is the practice of sharing ideas and experience with others to help them navigate complex challenges.

A “thought partner” is someone other than one’s typical work or even industry colleagues who helps business and organizational leaders to consider both personal, professional and leadership issues and how they intersect.

A thought partner adds value to conversations by bringing an experience-based perspective, a genuine curiosity about key issues, and a range of listening and question-asking skills that assist leaders to formulate innovative plans for an organization’s future direction.

Their job is to understand the subject the "thinker" is considering, understand the values the thinker is operating out of, understand the outcome the thinker desires, and mobilize a variety of communication tools in support of the thinker's process.

Thought partners ask good questions, are sensitive to the values and ultimate purposes of the leader and organization, and although they challenge ‘business-as-usual’ assumptions, are non-judgmental about other’s ideas and viewpoints. Thought partners challenge organizational leaders to think innovatively and to assume a creative perspective in order to solve what are often seemingly intractable problems.

Above all, thought partners are committed to the person who is asking a question or seeking clarity, and offer support, safety, powerful questions, accountability, and patient presence for their thinking journey. A good thought partner acts as a catalyst for clarity and confidence for the person in need of answers.
