Dialogue Partners offers civic engagement coaching and expert advice to help organizations to meaningfully participate in issues that are important to them especially those that involve emotion or public outrage.
The ability to identify, assess and resolve conflict can diffuse intensity and create opportunities to bring people together. We provide expert advice to practitioners and organizations to help build their stakeholder engagement skillset, ensure that they implement public engagement best practices, and identify potential areas of conflict before the public becomes enraged.
We can also review and comment on existing public engagement and knowledge building initiatives. At Dialogue Partners, we commonly conduct reviews of the following civic engagement deliverables:
- Guidance documents
- Process designs
- Consultation plans & toolkits
In addition, we can share specific methodologies, approaches and techniques for dealing with conflict to help your organization access collective wisdom and make your community engagement processes and outcomes sustainable.
