Building Coalitions

Course: Building Coalitions

Audience: Executives, managers, professionals, supervisors
Method: Online or in-person
Duration: 4 hours

This course teaches the four key components of coalition-building–conditions, commitment, contributions and competence–that must be assessed at each stage of development. First, political, economic and community conditions must be right. Second, there must be a core group of people committed to achieve the goal. Third, they must be able to contribute and/or recruit from others the necessary ideology, power and resources to reach the goal. Finally, you must have the competence to manage both the social change strategy and the coalition’s internal development. Participants will come away with a concrete understanding of how to build coalitions within their organizations.
