If I had to reduce my consulting work to one concept, it’s helping people build and sustain high participation organizations. I believe participation is the key to every strategy available to social movement organizations. I help folks with strategic planning, staff and leadership skill development, how to understand and create a comprehensive campaign based on first doing a power structure analysis, negotiations and bargaining training, and lots of other ways to build high participation organizations.
If you are interested, please contact me.
Big Bargaining Teams
The photo on this page shows me during a caucus in a day of union negotiations. This is what I mean by “big bargaining teams.” We had over one hundred workers attend negotiations this particular day back in 2006. Collective bargaining, done in an open and transparent manner, can be a fully transformative and powerful experience for workers. That’s why the big business groups are attempting to abolish collective bargaining, it works.
