Working with Decision Makers

ASTTBC members are often required to advise decision-makers, who will either follow our advice or choose another option.  While clients have the right to ignore our advice, there is nothing more frustrating than giving advice that you suspect your client has not properly understood.  Often this misunderstanding arises for surprising reasons.  And so, in this workshop, you will learn more about why your client may not be able to fully hear your advice.  You will also learn more effective approaches for reaching your clients, so that they can make decisions from a base of understanding.  The presenter, Laura Tate, is an urban planning practitioner and researcher who has drawn from a forthcoming book to develop these tips for greater success with decision makers.
