Frequently Asked Questions

Describe your approach to working effectively with external decision-makers and building relationships to influence them.

This skill set is paramount because this core competency involves the ability to explain, advocate, and express facts and ideas in a convincing manner and to negotiate with individuals and groups, both internally and externally. 


It also involves the ability to develop an expansive professional network with other organizations and to identify the internal and external politics that impact daily operational needs. We have that skill set, and we are firmly committed to establishing and maintaining working relationships with external organizations. 


We approach each situation with a clear understanding of the organizational and political reality. For us, it is necessary to use developed contacts to build and strengthen our internal support bases. Why? In order to be credible, we must have a deeper understanding of the substantive issues in order to establish a nexus of commonality.


Once we have established the nexus of commonality, we can now move on to creating the building blocks of trust. With trust, we are then empowered to move toward an agreement of intent and purpose.
