This book and subject was a remarkable find. For those that find themselves in a role having to manage stakeholders, whether individuals or groups, this is a must read. I work with a number of organizations that need community alignment to ensure the success of projects, improvement plans, resource allocation, and funding. Transcendent Partnership addresses those opportunities and challenges that we face. Just getting work done or moving forward is a hurdle, and Mary’s insights gives understanding and the steps that walks one through difficult conversations and maps the consequences. Every situation is unique, and the framework in this resource gives a new perspective to untying hands in the development process. Well done and thank you!
