Meeting facilitation is also offered online through Zoom videoconferencing which allows for break-out groups and full group processes.
Project Success = Initial Partnering Workshop X Ongoing Partnering Reinforcement
Partnering is a continuous process whereby initial partnering relationships are reinforced through ongoing reinforcement practices that are agreed to at the onset. Failed attempts at partnering often result from lack of participation in the partnering process beyond the initial workshop. Our approach is to work closely with all parties to design and facilitate a partnering process that is customized for each project. We emphasize and facilitate establishing an initial foundation of trust, and create ongoing reinforcement throughout the project based on the principle that one without the other limits the success of the project.
How long is a typical partnering session?
Initial Session 1 day – when parties have not worked together in the past or a significant number of team members are new to partnering. 4-6 hours – when parties have worked together before and are familiar with partnering.
Follow-up Sessions – 4-6 hours
How do you customize a partnering session for my project?
We interview the key team members on the phone to get their input on the project related to their goals, what is needed to for the project to be successful and potential topics/issues they want to include in the session. Then we design the session and get agreement with all parties.
