Calm & Credible Collaborations

Updated: Nov 1, 2023

Hi there, I'm Christine Jull, and I'm thrilled to explore the world of collaborations alongside you.

Over the past 2.5 years, I've teamed up with Ines Curin and Girls Talk Business, working together in various ways. These collaborations with Girls Talk Partners and the community have been truly rewarding experiences. Through this journey, I've learned a lot and gained immense gratitude for the unwavering support, innovative ideas, and the nurturing environment that has given me the courage to make impressive progress.

But there's more to my collaboration story. At the WaVe, I've joined forces with my collaboration partner, Sarah. This partnership has offered me fresh insights into the potential of collaborations and how they can benefit your business. Our collaboration has flourished for around 3.5 years, growing stronger and more impactful.

I feel proud of the relationships I have built as calm and credible collaborations that have added value to clients and communities.

Holding up the best in other women lets us be at our best. We can be vulnerable when we need support and be there when others need support. Relationships are a strength for women; managing our emotions when the going gets tough is easier when we have an excellent foundation of trusted principles to work with.

The conversations we have as the collaboration evolves are vital to the success of the collaboration. Each collaboration is different, and its construction is part of the creativity of the collaboration.

To help you develop your own successful collaborations, I've distilled key principles into a practical worksheet. This tool is designed to guide your exploration of potential or ongoing collaborations, allowing you to fully unlock the potential of these impactful partnerships.

1. Boundaries are for us and what we choose in our connection. A boundary is what we are willing to do or not do. They are not about the actions or words of others, but they are about us choosing our boundaries and communicating it clearly and calmly. The choices from there are in the hands of the other party, who should be clear on our words and actions and why we take them. Then, they can make their own decisions. Clarity and communication create trust in long-term relationships.

2. Attachment – Our level of attachment to someone doesn’t need to align with our love or dislike for them. We can love someone very much and not be so attached that we feel pain whenever we see them do X or Y. A graspy/clingy or distant level of attachment is not healthy in any relationship.

3. Requests – We as adults can only request others to comply, act or talk however we want them to. For example, we might ask someone to help us with a task or always attend a team meeting. We can then get frustrated when they don’t comply. However, when we do make a request, they may comply.

4. Expectations – We can sometimes expect others to meet our internalised rules. These internal rules are often not communicated clearly to others and sometimes are not things we have consciously decided on. For example, we might expect our partner to watch TV with us. We think they don’t love us and feel sad when they don’t. An expectation is only what we can have of ourselves. Any expectation of another adult is based on their thoughts and feelings, not ours, so explicit requests are the only way to communicate expectations, and agreements are the only way expectations can be revisited.
