3.1 Helping you to get things done

Being successful in anything you undertake depends on achieving what you said you would, whether that is for your colleagues, friends in a club or people you work for.

However, this is not always as easy as it sounds. In a complex world, getting things done often requires working with other people and influencing them to help us. For instance, it might not be possible for one small local organisation to set up a community garden but by working with other groups and the local council this could be enough to get it off the ground. Who you know and have conversations with will determine how easy it is to form a partnership.
