New Tactics Workshops

 
New Tactics offers a variety of workshops covering the Strategic Effectiveness Method. The value of the workshops is in gathering the members of your organization together to discuss and agree on the outcome of each step. Many minds and thoughts add value to the process, resulting in a campaign that is better and stronger. The workshops are customized to your organization and its specific issue, helping to move your work forward in an effective and strategic manner.

New Tactics offers a variety of training workshops in the Strategic Effectiveness Method to meet differing needs. They are described below from the shortest to the longest. We also offer the opportunity to train individuals to become Strategic Effectiveness facilitators for their organization or network, which includes extended on-the-job mentoring.

All workshops are designed for one trainer and a small group of participants for maximum participation and effective interactions. The Half-Day Introductory Workshop is delivered in a “hands-on” case study format and therefore has no restrictions on the number of participants. For further information including costs for larger groups or to schedule a workshop, please contact Emily Hutchinson at NTWorkshops@cvt.org. Please note that the costs listed below do not include the following additional expenses: trainer travel expenses, printing of workshop materials for participants, or any other logistics related to the training (participant travel, interpreters, workshop space, etc.). These expenses would be the responsibility of the host organization.
