Have you ever worked hard on a really important problem, come up with a valid, workable solution – a proposal that really, really is the right thing to do – only to see that proposal:
It’s one thing when a proposal that’s poorly thought-out gets hung up because of political gridlock, such as NIMBY… In our opinion that’s just fine.
But it’s an entirely different thing when a proposal that’s legitimate and important gets hung up because of “politics” or NIMBY – that’s serious!
If you work in the public-sector, this is not really news to you. You know how difficult it is to get anything done because of “politics.”
But did you know that becoming effective (i.e. proposing and implementing the right thing) is systematically attainable? In spite of “politics!” For the past 40+ years, we have been teaching everyday public-sector professionals how to transform themselves into Implementation Geniuses.
Using our systematized process, neither your discipline nor level matters.
What matters is that as part of your professional mission, you are working on legitimate problems or opportunities, and the solution you are proposing is reasonable and responsible.
Spend just 2-3 days learning our approach and you will know precisely how to implement your legitimate and important work -- REGARDLESS of how controversial the issues related to your project may be.
In other words, this isn't about public-engagement as an end in itself.
Rather, we see citizen participation as a means to an end: Your ability to fulfill your mandate, your mission through the implementation of your projects and proposals by getting your opponents to conclude what you're working on is legitimate, it is reasonable, it is responsible.
Let us be clear -- this is NOT about pulling the wool over the eyes of the public or your project's opponents!
This is about openly, directly, and genuinely developing their Informed Consent (particularly of your proposal's fiercest opponents!) to proceed with your project because it really IS the right thing to do given your mandate. . . In spite of the related costs, drawbacks, etc.
With our training, you can master the difference between being an average ineffective bureaucrat, and being an Implementation Genius.
