Getting Things Done: Problem Solving through Negotiations
Working well with those whom you'd rather not work with
To get things done you work with a range of county staff, elected officials and community members … some of whom may not agree with your goals. What techniques and tools exist to help you pursue your objectives? This course examines practices that improve the likelihood of achieving desired objectives. It examines the elements which contribute to success, from interpersonal relations to building a system of monitoring and a culture of accountability. Participants look at themselves and the values that underlie ethical behavior and trustworthiness. Other components address coalition building, collaboration and setting expectations.
