This two, half-day online workshop will help you and your team (re)build trust with oftentimes cynical, skeptical and oppositional citizens. Attendees will better understand and manage interactions with highly suspicious and skeptical citizens who don’t believe in government authority or the value of public service professionals.

February 17 – 18, 2021 (previously scheduled for October 20 – 21, 2020)
Register early, save with Early Bird pricing and help make this a successful event. This not only saves you money and secures you a seat in a limited seating event (see above for varying min/max class sizes by course), but it assists us in our planning because all training events require a minimum number of participants. Decisions for “go” or “no go” events are made within the week after the Early Bird Deadline.
