Flexible Consensus-Building Processes for Groups

Agree is a full service firm offering facilitation, construction and non-construction Partnering, mediation and other consensus building processes, as well as training focused on the effective management of conflict.

Agree designs and facilitates events ranging in size from small working groups of 2 to 10 people to large public meetings of 150 to 200 people.

Our facilitation experience includes:

  • Task-focused Workshops
  • Cross-functional Work Groups
  • Action planning Forums
  • 'Town hall' style Meetings and Citizen's Working Groups
  • Class EA Public Consultation and Public Information Centres

We customize our facilitations to address unique organizational needs, while ensuring meaningful involvement of participants. Clients maximize their potential for a successful outcome through:

1.   Pre-Event Consultation and/or Alignment Meetings that provide assistance in:

  • Determining goals
  • Defining roles and expectations
  • Public consultation program design
  • Event design and agenda preparation
  • Coaching of in-house presenters

2.   Event Facilitation

  • Interact with and guide participants
  • Resolve communication problems
  • Encourage active participation of participants
  • Apply decision making and problem solving techniques
  • Maintain focus on meeting goals and key issues
  • Obtain closure on unresolved issues
  • Build relationships between participants
  • Minimize conflict

3.   Post-Meeting Follow-Up

  • Prepare Summary Report
  • Discuss appropriate future action

A Professional Facilitator will help when you need to:

  • involve people, generate creative solutions, develop strategy and form consensus
  • narrow down a broad range of options
  • manage a complex meeting where stakeholders are seen to have a vested interest
  • de-brief a complicated experience to derive the most learning from it
  • raise the 'difficult to discuss' issues
  • allow for conflict resolution/mediation of contentious issues
  • develop a vision for the future

Costing a facilitation will depend on the unique needs of each project and the personnel required to achieve the desired outcome. Personnel options include:

  • Sole Facilitator
  • Sole Facilitator and Scribe*
  • Lead and Co-Facilitator
  • Lead and Co-Facilitator and Scribe*

*Note: We are able to provide Summary Reports when a Scribe is in attendance at the meeting.
