Four simple steps to opening partnerships with an “O.P.E.N. house”
Opening moves matter. In chess, an effective opening strategy can set a player up for certain victory. In relationships, positive first impressions can set both parties up for a win-win partnership.
If your lab is looking to build new relationships within your institution, open strong by hosting a simple “open house.” It’s a great way to bring new partners into your lab right from the start. Meet them, greet them, and show them who you are and what you can do for them.
