YOUR TIME IS WORTH LEARNING...

Why the Public Doesn't Trust You
How to consistently get a “Thank
goodness you’re there!” reaction from your public, even anti-government opponents.
You Can Be Responsive AND Responsible

Being "responsive" to your public too often means giving into their demands... which amounts to being less responsible. We'll show you how your team can actually be BOTH -- but it's not necessarily as you, or the public would expect!

Why You Can't Rely on Science
Americans aren't particularly impressed by scientific evidence or all your solid data. But don't despair, that doesn't mean it's useless in creating more informed (and less political) decision-making.

You're Contributing to the "Us vs. Them"
You're mission is legitimate and your intentions are genuine, but your unwittingly sending contradictory signals. Anti-government sentiments are on the rise. You can't afford to play into their fears that you're one of "Them... evil government."

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN IN THE
ONLINE PORTION OF THE COURSE

In the year following your completion of the in-person training, we’ll strive to make a few fundamental “a-ha’s” click in your mind.

Think of this as a deep dive into why our Consent-Building approach works.... Why it's fundamentally different from public relations tactics... Why it does NOT mean you'll do more public outreach (it's wholly different)... And why you can be the best technical expert and still get sandbagged by a tiny segment of the public.

You’ll get a chance to go through the nitty-gritty steps of applying this methodology with our guidance as we look over your shoulder.

Respect & Legitimacy Module

You’ll learn practical steps you can immediately put to use to prevent, and if necessary reverse the public’s anti-government attitudes towards your organization and project.

By applying the methodology you learned in the in-person training and going through this module’s exercises, you’ll understand what it takes to get a “Thank God you’re there!” reaction from your public -- including opponents and anti-government groups -- on a consistent basis.

Values Module
When you walk away from a public meeting or encounter with an opponent feeling like people are “irrational,” that’s a symptom that you don’t fully understand their higher values.

Higher values deal primarily with issues of fairness, rights, freedoms, liberties, responsibilities, duties, etc. While this module isn’t “touchy-feely”, it is going to get to the root of why some people seem irrational. In this segment, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of your opponents’ higher values, and see them as the key to reversing their opposition to your proposals.

Strategic Online Module
The rubber meets the road in this module. You’ll learn how to deploy your limited outreach resources strategically.

By the end of the module, you’ll have completed the rigorous and necessary steps to design an Objectives-Driven Public Outreach Program that’s tailored to accomplish the top priority needs (and how to identify them) of any given project.

Tactics Module
So much of what you’ve probably focused on in the past are Citizen Participation Techniques. During the in-person training, you’ll have already learned not to see any CP Technique as “good” or “bad”, merely as a tool that is either helpful or harmful to the task at hand.

In this module, we’ll share with you some powerful Tactics that not only incorporate what you’ve learned so far, but often take LESS time, use FEWER resources, and yield a MORE informed public discourse… which leads to a more informed decision-making process. You can sometimes accomplish a very challenging Citizen Participation Objective by deploying one or another of these Consent-Building Tactics.

Years ago I took the SDIC training from 'the Bleikers' and consider it to be one of the most valuable set of tools I use to conduct business on a daily basis. It was a true paradigm shift
