The Common Outlook training was really valuable because it gave our organization the opportunity and the tools to reflect on how to produce the outcomes in a negotiation that we want to have happen. In the nonprofit sector, participating in this kind of training is rare. Given that we negotiate a lot with donors so that our programs can be delivered – in our case – to disadvantaged Canadians, the Common Outlook tools can make a difference to the success of our programs, and therefore to our low-income clients. I strongly recommend the training to others in the voluntary sector.
