“When failure is not an option, I call Agreement Dynamics. No question about it.”

Agreement Dynamics facilitators have helped ensure the success of retreats for organizations ranging from small non-profits to some of the largest corporations in the nation. Whether the purpose of the retreat is for teambuilding, or a nose-to-the-grindstone intense work session, an Agreement Dynamics facilitator will ensure that the retreat will go smoothly and meet the needs of the participants in real time.
Multi-party negotiations are becoming more common as diverse parties struggle to come to agreements mandated by federal, state, and local governments. Using effective collaboration tools, Agreement Dynamics assists the parties in reaching mutually beneficial and lasting agreements. Our team designs and facilitates stakeholder, committee, and/or task force meetings, as well as handles logistic and administrative support for the groups. (See Facilitating Complex Issues)
Failure was Never an Option: Lake Tapps Task Force
On February 5, 2010, after more than a decade of negotiations, the Task Force and community celebrate the saving of Lake Tapps. Comprised of more than 38 stakeholder groups representing cities, counties, regional, state, federal, private, homeowner and tribal stakeholders, the Task Force was facilitated by Agreement Dynamics.
Agreement Dynamics facilitates a wide array of negotiations. Unlike a mediator, who is usually engaged when the process breaks down, a facilitator is useful throughout the entire negotiation, keeping the discussions respectful and on-track. Our facilitators have specialized in negotiation facilitation for over 20 years and were negotiators themselves before they were facilitators. As a result of our practical experience and understanding of both labor organizations and management, Agreement Dynamics is sought out by both labor and management clients in the public and private sectors. Whether it’s bargaining units of 18 or 80,000, Agreement Dynamics has unique capabilities to help parties achieve mutually acceptable agreements.
