As part of an internal capacity building process, CRC recently held a day of Diplomatic Training for the entire CRC Team, hosted at our new office in Westville. Robert Botha of the James 1:27 Trust, a Yezingane Network member and specialist in Diplomacy training, spent a day at the Children's Rights Centre, going through the process of demystifying what Diplomacy is all about. We had an exciting time of learning negotiation skills, which made the challenges that governments and even civil society face all too clear The biggest goal is to get a situation where everyone wins, though as we learnt through a highly realistic game, designed by the United Nations that this is hardly ever as straightforward as it appears. We were journeyed through various dimensions of diplomacy throughout the day, from the importance of physical appearance to the neccessity of courteous communication. Diplomacy skills are extremely important especially for effective advocacy. For more information on how to get a hold of Robert Frost, contact us at the Children's Rights Centre.
