Partnership Approach

The Associate Partner Program is a comprehensive, balanced program designed to meet partners’ needs and results in joint success. At PS Culture Matters every partnership is an opportunity to understand our partner’s needs and work together to deliver results. We’re not interested in a one-time sale. Instead, we cultivate long-term relationships that grow along with partners’ GAPM™-based business. As a result, we look for partners with unique characteristics and whose core values are similar to ours.

We are looking for professional service providers to partner with who can put the Accountable Culture Management™ Process in front of progressive organizations. This could be accountants, lawyers, consultants, financial advisors, or professional service providers of any kind with an interest in helping organizations improve their performance. As members of the PS Culture Matters’ Associate Partner Program, partners will be eligible to receive a variety of sales, marketing, and support benefits.
