Good People

Sabrina Colón"Build into your process milestones to assess what you’re doing and don’t be afraid to change course if your original public involvement plan is not reaching the audiences you hoped. There is nothing worse than working a plan you know isn’t solving the issue just because it’s what’s on paper." - Sabrina Colón

Tuesday, August 13, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

In our August Learning Webinar, John Godec MCP3, Debra Duerr and Wendy Green-Lowe CP3 of The Participation Company, and Doug Sarno MCP3 of Forum Facilitation Group discuss delving into understanding of human behaviorthe battle for control, and toxic participants and how we approach these issues as P2 practitioners.

It's never been easy, but to be successful these days, we need to adjust to a hyper political and partisan environment. This session will explore the key battles we face in designing and conducting successful participation. We'll discuss creating a level playing field, creating trust and facilitating success: what are the obstacles, and what are our "big guns"?
