Our ability to achieve Interior's mission depends on our ability to cooperate with others. But partnerships are hard work - they require skill and resources, from both our employees and our partners. We are working to provide the resources that will help our employees build and sustain successful partnerships. There are many effective ways to develop these skills. Training can build skills. Developmental opportunities, like details, can jump-start an employee's understanding of partner organizations. Publications can guide, inspire, and teach. Examples of successful partnerships inspire our employees and our partners to do new and exciting things together. Recognition and awards help ensure that our employees and our partners continue the often difficult, but always rewarding job of working together to conserve, use and protect America's natural, cultural and historic heritage.
