Four Worlds has established a set of principles that guide our work with clients. It’s the foundation upon which our consultants work, and serves to build confidence in both the process and the people involved in a given issue. By adopting these principles, we build trust among our clients and stakeholders, and have established ourselves as a leader in conflict management and transformation. We focus on water resource management, scientific mediation and facilitation, technical assessment, capacity building, religious mediation, and life coaching.
The 4 D’s framework is another process that is used to guide clients through the decision-making process. It is designed to promote collaboration, communication, and consensus-building among stakeholders, leading to better decisions and more positive outcomes.
Discovery is the first phase of the process, where Four Worlds helps clients identify the issues and concerns that need to be addressed. This may involve conducting research, gathering data, and interviewing stakeholders to get a clear understanding of the situation.
Dialogue is the second phase, where we facilitate discussions among stakeholders to explore different perspectives and ideas. This phase emphasizes active learning and is designed to help participants understand each other’s positions and interests.
Deliberation is the third phase, where stakeholders work together to prioritize alternatives and develop solutions. This phase may involve mediation to help resolve conflicts and find common ground.
Decision is the final phase, where stakeholders agree on a course of action and develop a plan for implementation. This may involve further negotiation and collaboration to ensure that everyone is committed to the plan and understands their role in achieving the desired outcomes.
