Now you’re talking, but…

Are you getting results?

Are your meetings productive?

Is the lack of progress frustrating?

Is your team achieving the best results?

The heart of improving group effectiveness is skilled facilitation. CDR facilitators elicit participation, ownership, and creativity that helps people work together to accomplish their goals.

We provide facilitation assistance to a wide range of clients in a variety of settings— from working with cross-functional teams to developing  peace accords between local government and indigenous organizations. Our experience in successful consensus building can help you:

  • Create a public policy for improving social or environmental impacts

We work hard to grasp your issues and orient towards your goals so that you leave feeling satisfied with how the meeting was run, the results you achieved, and the high level of participation in reaching the final outcome.
