2. Facilitation

Working in a competitive environment often necessitates bringing together a range of stakeholders. TDSA can assist you in this by:

  • Providing sample documents (eg. flyers, invitations, participant register) involved in convening community forums, focus groups or decision-making sessions.
  • Facilitating the workshop or session to achieve your desired outcomes.
  • Documenting the content elicited at the workshop or session.

3. Mentoring, professional supervision

Often the work of strategic and operational management is problematic, even more so when major reform is underway.   Often it comes to a few senior managers to focus solely on this issue often, working alone.

Working without peers who understand the challenges and rewards inherent to this work, can create a real sense of isolation and reduces your ability to think outside the square.

TDSA can assist by:

  • Providing professional supervision to workers addressing these issues;
  • Coach you about solutions, processes and approaches; and
  • Mentoring to achieve best practice in whatever your sector.

7. Tailored community-based transport solutions
