Consultations are key to a high level of engagement by your stakeholders. Your stakeholders might be community members, your staff team, consumers or clients of your organization; anyone who feels they have a stake in your outcomes.
Our facilitators have a great deal of experience in designing and leading consultations. We remain calm and focussed during those consultations that address contentious topics. We ensure our processes are able to work around typical barriers to participation such as literacy, language, or ability.
As reliance on technology increases, and budgets for face-to-face meetings shrink, we frequently work with clients using virtual means. Visioning, strategic and operational planning, and stakeholder or community consultations can all be undertaken without the costs associated with bringing people together. Let us show you how!
Teams can get stuck. Assumptions are made. Operational differences push sections apart. We can assist with reconnecting your people. Helping teams work through tough situations, making good decisions, drives much of the work we do. Groups in difficult situations can move forward.
We work with the team leader and members to craft processes that bring alignment. We assist clients to connect remotely located teams through the use of technology in facilitation. We work with people to move past “turf protection” to create a shared vision. We lead groups to make consensus-based decisions. These decisions “stick” because all involved contributed to their creation.
Often visioning can get caught up in the blue sky of the future. Our approach is practical, useable and generates ideas that are at once visionary and achievable. Our clients leave with a clear statement of where their organization wants to be in 3 to 5 years. The vision is consensus-based and driven by the wisdom of each participant.
We design and facilitate dynamic planning sessions that put the stakeholder first. Groups choose us to work with them to create plans with momentum. We bring proven methodologies that support learners of all types. At the end of the process, our clients have, in hand, directly relevant, meaningful plans that they can put into effect immediately. Created in the participants’ language, each person owns the plan. They include measurable outcomes and assigned accountabilities. The plans are able to live inside today’s dynamic reality.
