Brokers carry responsibility for the process of building a partnership and ensuring its effective functioning. The partnership building process is a complex process with four distinct phases - each phase requires the broker to fufil specific tasks or responsibilities which in turn require distinct roles or skills. To support the broker in this process, a leadership compass will help the broker select the appropriate roles within phases. The broker is representative of a new kind of leader, one that guides and supports rather than directs.
