Understanding Poverty to Engage Effectively with Your Clients

The lives of those who face the day-to-day realities of poverty can be very complicated. Working effectively with these populations comes with unique challenges. And the frameworks for creating solutions—the beliefs and assumptions—we bring with us to this work makes a big difference.

Ryan Jacoby of Game Changer Consulting, LLC draws on his 15+ years of experience with Habitat for Humanity, as well as training in Bridges Out of Poverty and Appreciative Inquiry, to help participants reflect on how they approach their work with those living in poverty. During this workshop, participants will think critically about how they currently engage with their stakeholders. Topics will include:

• Differences between situational and generational poverty,
• Poverty’s potential impact on program delivery,
• Key principles of Bridges Out of Poverty,
• An introduction to the practice of Appreciative Inquiry with training exercises, and
• Strategies for creating relationships of mutual respect and trust to ensure the most effective and meaningful engagement.

Those working directly with populations affected by poverty are encouraged to attend, as well as those responsible for setting strategy and developing programs for organizations working in these areas.
