Tell us about your partnerships
There is a potential to partner with members in our community sharing Nonviolent Communication and similar methods such as restorative justice. There is also the potential to partner with groups that have been working to for change for health and sustainability. These would increase the value and support of the awareness campaign calendar and create a more complete community effort. For example during the Season for the Earth - Earth Day to include a group wanting to create community gardens. There are a variety of groups that can be included for creating a successful calendar.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your solution? If so, where and why?
Currently I have begun to target Parents on the subject of introducing Nonviolent Communication techniques. I have been asked to submit a proposal to the Early Childhood Education for Montessori Schools for their upcoming conference as a speaker. There is also pre-schools, daycare's and conferences, trade shows and focused groups that center on parenting and children.
There is potential for a referral Nonviolent Communication and similar methods for parents to hire in their communities for added training. Also for Parent Advisory Training's and Teachers Pro D Days.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
The environment of this internal organization will be based on the same principals as the methods it hopes to introduce. The intention would be to have those interested in Nonviolent Communication participate in the development. Structures for meetings and dialogues will follow the same format as being promoted to our provincial education institutions. Goals will be to focus on values and needs. Business systems developed by Nonviolent Communication facilitators will be introduced as operational procedures and guidelines with a structure for the purpose of operating the business successfully, such as hours to accommodate the clients & systems for ensuring bills are paid and collected, etc. This operation will be service orientated therefore will be organized to provide excellence.
