Even though an organization may have differing perspectives, experiences and desires, there may be enough commonality to build an alliance and work together. Involve different professions – Policy makers, business owners, school administrators, attorneys, judges, university officials all have a perspective on this problem and can add to the discussion of the issue. Involve different cultures – People from various cultural backgrounds bring a different understanding and communication to an issue. Sometimes differing assumptions and viewpoints can create and/or contribute to the discussion.
10 Develop Relationships with other Organizations Create a trusting, open environment – Foster two-way communication based on listening for and sharing valuable information and by being responsive, respectful, candid and honest. Show commitment to other organizations and the community – Be involved; invest in the community, show a commitment to work in the community on this issue; use the resources and tools that are available to us. Appreciate other organizations – Show appreciation for organizations that help us. This will help to continue to develop relationships beyond one issue.
