A Guide for Dialogue and Collaboration
by David J. Mitchell

Convening: A Guide for Dialogue and Collaboration engagingly describes the art and science behind one of the crucial skills of our times. In an age of complexity, when partnerships are increasingly necessary to address or resolve difficult issues, the ability to convene takes on a renewed importance. This book is a practical guide for individuals and organizations seeking to develop or enhance their capacities to convene. Whether bringing together a group of colleagues to better understand a complicated matter, or assembling diverse stakeholders to develop mutual respect, convening can provide the most effective means for resolving problems. The process helps to build trust and chart a path forward. This indispensable guide provides the essentials for successful convening and encourages organizations large and small, public and private, to use this flexible tool to advance strategies and objectives with a much greater likelihood of success.
