Collaborative Informed Consent(R)
Consulting and Facilitation Training
WIN IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION; STAY OUT OF THE COURT OF LAW WHILE BUILDING WORKABLE AND SUSTAINABLE RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR STAKEHOLDERS!
The Collaborative Informed Consent (CIC) model helps prevent community and communications crises resulting in public outrage and possible litigation while enhancing our professional and personal connections and reputations with our regulators and community stakeholders.
The model and process help us develop meaningful and workable relationships with the various stakeholders interested in our work using an informational, educational, and engagement strategic approach.
The collaborative informed consent approach has been refined over 50-years by L. Darryl and Kay Armstrong at ARMSTRONG and Associates. It has brought local, regional, and even national recognition to managers who use it consistently and with commitment.
Adopting the CIC model and "mindset," getting trained in how to plan, implement, and evaluate it has created long-term, meaningful, and productive relationships between community members and project managers and their teams nationwide. As managers, you get your work done in collaboration with the stakeholders and regulators. You learn how to stay at and talk around the table with each other even when the going gets tough.
In addition to helping you develop your CIC plan of action, we will also train you to facilitate successful and productive meetings.
