Workshops with Allan Parker

Community Consultation Negotiation Program

 

Be it a public meeting, a staff think tank meeting, collecting the views of the community at large, a teacher/parent discussion about a required learning approach, a gathering to ascertain the needs of a sporting group or a church community, a family discussing an upcoming special birthday party, we are in the process of consulting and gathering perspectives, opinions, facts, ideas and innovation in almost everything we do when managing groups, communities or meetings.

The community at large considers and exercises its right to a "voice". This also carries with it an expectation of being heard, understood and often that the contributions made are being considered or part of the decision making process.

Managing this process well can create extremely positive dynamics, generate great ideas, stimulate involvement, participation and innovation. The opposite is also true. Aligning the Purpose, Process, Participation with the expectations determines both the success of capturing useful information supporting critical decision making and thus the satisfaction of all parties.

Quality Community Consultation is clearly a HIGH PRIORITY. How each party/person can create a positive impact through being more skilful at negotiating throughout the process is the key success factor for all.

The Community Consultation Negotiation Program offered by Allan Parker explores the opportunities available to make the gathering of community views, ideas and agreements, public meetings, meetings in general, negotiating, planning and idea generating come together in a positive productive way that does encourage participation that produces valuable information and ideas.
