In this 4-hour session, participants will discuss:
The definitions of engagement and consultation – are they the same or different?
Opportunities of good quality engagement for both the organisation and the community
Identifying stakeholders and understanding their different roles and influence in the engagement
Ensuring that engagement practice is considered during decision-making processes
Frameworks, policies and tools kits
Understand the resources needed for successful engagement
The relationship between internal and external engagement practice
Different engagement methods – why so many?
Reporting engagement practice
Something you can do tomorrow to improve your engagement practice.
NOTE: If working in local, state or federal government organisations, we include details of legislative requirements for consultation (and/or engagement).
This session will be delivered at a level, recognising that participants are unlikely to be the hands-on operatives of engagement practice, rather the leaders and decision-makers, who also determine both whether to engagement and what resources will be made available for the engagement.
Who should attend? This session has been designed for Executives, Senior Managers and Decision Makers (including Elected Members) of organisations that engage.
Recommended Experience: Engagement – none, Leadership – minimum of 12 months
Delivery: This session can be delivered at your own location or in a public training facility.
We recognise that Executives, Senior Managers and Decision Makers (including Elected Members) makers are busy people. We designed the practical engagement for leaders module to facilitate leaders, whilst exercising their leadership and decision-making duties, to recognise the practice of engagement in their roles.
