This service is not unlike the Navigator Strategic Planning process. Sometimes it takes a skilled facilitator to move along a project that has been languishing. Similarly, we can facilitate meetings with work groups that need to arrive at a position of consensus in order to move on. One example was to bring 50 of the smaller Electrical Distribution companies from all across Ontario together to prepare a consensus position against a provincial white paper that would have had, in their view, a disastrous impact on electricity distribution in the province. A day and a half later they were in a position of consensus and all of them signed an Accord that they then presented to the Province and they won the day.
It’s always easier for someone on the outside to see beyond both the trees and the forest to help unstick a project or a process. And like our Strategic Planning Process, we do it quickly without being superficial.
