- 1. Strategic Assessment and Planning
If you need a new strategic plan or want to assess opportunities to find new pathways and new partners.
- 2. Facilitation and Meeting Training (Including Integrating Technology)
We’ve all participated in poorly planned and executed meetings that cost both time and money. RESOLVE trains staff (and/or stakeholders) to improve their meeting planning and facilitation skills. We emphasize pre-meeting planning, in-the-room skills, and post meeting follow-through. We offer basic, advanced, and expert training.
- 3. The Use of Science in Decision Making
Science and technical information is often politicized when there is a dispute or uncertainty at a site or policy level. RESOLVE has deep experience with processes that use science to build trust and support effective decision making. We can train your staff or provide direct support to design and/or implement an engagement process that utilizes science.
- 4. Leadership Coaching & Change/Transition Management
Support for new leaders, and during periods of change, is essential to success.
- 5. Leading, Supporting (or Fixing) Coalitions
RESOLVE can manage/facilitate coalitions, provide member training, or help put a coalition back on track.
- 6. Negotiation Support and Training
We can help you plan to win and train you or provide support during negotiations.
- 7. Collaborative Technology—The best tools and training to integrate them seamlessly into meetings.

What makes for a good conversation? A seemingly simple question, but it reminds me of the importance of the basics as we venture into new terrain opened by technology.
I am having so much FUN exploring technological tools for public engagement! The process certainly looks different at times, which is part of the fun. And, yet, I keep coming back to the basics.

Collaboration and Technology Discussion Series – Collaborative Values and Principles: Guidance for Choosing Collaborative Tactics and Tools
May 10, 2010
RESOLVE has published a new article opening the door to conversation about choosing and using collaborative technological tools to increase partnerships and consensus building. The article raises several important questions that we will continue to explore in a series of blog posts and articles about the use of technology in collaborative and consensus building processes. As this discussion unfolds, you can expect to hear from RESOLVE senior staff and board members and gain access to case studies and best practice findings. This paper kicks-off a discussion leading up to the launch of the USIECR Technology Network. Throughout the conversation, we encourage you to read and participate. Send us a video, comment to our blog posts, or shoot us an email! We appreciate the variety of perspectives and experiences from our colleagues and partners who are using collaborative technology in their work.
RESOLVE builds strong, enduring solutions to environmental, social, and health challenges through collaboration – your input is a key component of that collaboration, and we look forward to hearing from you.
The new article, “Collaborative Values and Principles – Guidance for Choosing Collaborative Tactics and Tools” can be found on theRESOLVE website Reports and Manuscripts page
