And in the words of IISC Ireland s Regional Director Louise O Meara:.. I have just finished a three day workshop with a great group of people… Participants came from lead networks, organisations and teams throughout Northern Ireland and brought with them lots of energy and plenty of challenges!.. We started with a reality check – we listed the challenges participants are facing (it was a pretty long list!) - and then over three days explored a range of frameworks and tools to use in addressing them.. These included frameworks for designing and implementing inclusive, collaborative planning processes and for involving others in decision making in ways that build ownership and real buy-in.. Tools for building agreements and reaching consensus were tested, and the role of developing and communicating a vision in ways that inspire and engage others was explored.. We looked at how to set about designing results-focused agendas and implementation plans that really give coherence and focus to our work.. A number of models were applied to help deepen our understanding of how we - and others - respond to change and what helps people make the transition - emotional and otherwise - to new beginnings.. The workshop ended with another reality check – we revisited our original list of challenges generated at the start of the workshop and dialogued about how the models and tools we met will help us address these.. The creativity and inventiveness of participants and how they intend to make the models and tools work for them was powerful to hear.. No silver bullets, no magical solutions… but a series of real, tested tools and approaches grounded in values of respect for human dignity and the need for greater involvement of others.. Last word to Goethe… “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.. Begin it now.. ’..
