C. Plan for Implementation

Once a decision has been reached about which partnership-oriented practices to use, you will need to think about how China might implement these practices. The plan for implementation requires that you:


  • Review the partnership-oriented practices that are recommended to establish a trusting partnership.

    Review the partnership-oriented practices in Handout 4.1 and Activity 4.10a with particular attention to the examples and applications that might be especially effective for China to use with Aaron.

  • Identify practices that China can use with Aaron at the beginning ground, middle ground, and firm ground phases to establish a trusting partnership.

    Complete the implementation plan in Activity 4.13a to show how China can use specific partnership-oriented practices to build a trusting partnership with Aaron. (Remember that China will need to incorporate the basic communication strategies in Module 3 related to attending and active listening, seeking and verifying information, and joining and supporting.)
