Pro Bono Australia Alliance with CMA
Tuesday, 13th March 2007 at 3:07 pm

Pro Bono Australia has formed an alliance with workplace training experts CMA to bring the Not for Profit sector a range of negotiations and skills workshops at a special ‘charity’ rate.

CMA is a leading Australian provider of education, training and advice. Since 1993, CMA has delivered specialised expertise in relationship management, negotiation and influential communication through workshops and seminars.

CMA is offering Pro Bono Australia’s Not for Profit readers access to three of its most successful workshops – "Getting to Yes", "Difficult Conversations and "Influential Business Writing" in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.

Pro Bono Australia founder Karen Mahlab says she is delighted to form this alliance with CMA: an organisation which shares similar values to Pro Bono Australia and whose reputation is excellent.

She says it goes one step further in Pro Bono Australia’s mission to develop skills and resources to community organisations across Australia.

Mahlab says CMA offers Not for Profits a unique learning experience drawing on world-wide strategies developed at Harvard University at a cost that they can afford. The Not for Profit rate is incredibly good value and unavaiable anywhere else.

Some of the workshops will be offered for free to Not for Profits.

CMA’s Operations Manager Shaynee Jaffe says CMA is keen to offer special rates to the Not for Profit sector through Pro Bono Australia.

The course dates are:

Difficult Conversations

Melbourne 28 June

NFP Rate: $550 (inc GST)
To view course details visit www.cmaservices.com.au/dc

Influential Business Writing

Melbourne 22 June

NFP Rate: $550 (inc GST)

In dealing with multiple stakeholders including donors, volunteers and staff, Not for Profit practitioners often need to call on critical interpersonal skills. CMA is an acclaimed specialist in training professionals in these skills, including negotiation, influential communication, sensitive conversations and feedback skills.

Their workshops are based on theory originating from the Harvard Negotiation Project, whose principals helped establish the business 14 years ago.

Here’s how a number of Not for Profits found the CMA courses.
– It was wonderful to participate in such a systematic comprehensive program presented in such a polished manner within an ethical framework. Ruth Wein, Holocaust Services Co-ordinator – Jewish Care
– CMA provides practical and highly useful advice on how to deal with sometimes difficult scenarios. Brooke Groves, Project Co-ordinator – Ardoch Youth Foundation
– A brilliant course, that helps not only in professional but also personal negotiations. Lisa Cream, House Manager – Ronald McDonald House
– A fantastic training program, engaging material, a sound theoretical framework and time for plenty of practice to cement knowledge. Fleur Geer, Training and Development Officer – Melbourne City Mission
– This was a thoroughly enjoyable and useful course. It exceeded all expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending it to others. Thank you! Anja Nenadic, Development Coordinator – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
– I will feel more empowered going into my future negotiations by using what I have learned here. Bronwyn Percival, Donor Liaison Officer – Open Family
– This was a simple but powerful model that could be used in any situation. Most helpful in clarifying thought processes and approaching conflict management in a systematic way. Tracy Gemmens, HR Manage (National Office) – Red Cross
– This workshop really demonstrated how if you can analyse both sides of a conflict it is not so difficult to work through to a solution. Danielle Landy, Customer Service Manager – Make a Wish Foundation
