Are you looking for a Colorado partnering facilitator who will:
- Apply tested communication strategies to build empathy and mutual understanding?
- Help members find ways to anticipate and eliminate roadblocks to trusting relationships?
- Guide participants to better define roles and responsibilities?
- Capture lessons learned and brainstorm other approaches on future projects?
- Introduce tools and interpersonal methods to minimize conflicts, misunderstandings, delays or claims?
- Encourage quieter personalities to engage and channel those with stronger styles?
- Help project team members get to know one another: strengths, preferences, achilles heel weaknesses?
- Seek constructive outcomes for all concerned prior to the end of each session?
“Laura did an excellent job in coming in to help get our project team off on the right foot. The analysis of how each member would work in the larger group was very beneficial. She also returned later in the project to help get negotiations on very tough issues started so that the project could continue down the path to success. I look forward to working with her again in the future as I will recommend her to future project teams.” —Jeffery Hampton, P.E., Project Engineer 1 at Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Denver
“OMG! You are so good at facilitation. We talked more than you did and that is a sign of great facilitation. The meetings are done and lots on the table. Everyone [on their end] felt good about it and so did my staff. We have some work to do but the issues are out there and dates confirmed for when groups will have worked through what process and reported back. There will be a compilation of agreements and what needs to change…” —CEO of a Colorado non-profit organization
