Worth a Look: Convergence – Center for Policy Resolution

Categories: Worth A Look

Convergence was founded in 2009 to offer an alternative solution for addressing urgent social and policy issues that were bogged down in disagreement and discord. Drawing from decades of experience solving difficult policy issues, Convergence was formed to use dialogue and collaboration to generate breakthrough solutions to important yet intractable problems. And it is working. Convergence is now at a turning point. With our proven process generating workable solutions to four challenging issues, we want to do more. By 2020, our plan calls for:

  • 10 projects of national consequence completed or under way
  • Implementation of key action programs identified by our project teams
  • R&D into new areas of focus
  • Development of a turnkey toolkit for organizations looking to adopt a culture of collaborative problem solving.

For a brief time an Assistant Professor of International Relations at the University of Denver and the University of Washington at Seattle. A graduate of the National War College and a Phd from the University of Southern California.

ROBERT STEELE: I have had the honor of meeting Dr. Calhoun, and consider him one of the most eclectic brilliant people it has ever been my pleasure and privilege to know. He is vastly more diverse in his interests, and also very critical — I tend not to publish reviews of items I consider less than 4 or 5 stars. Any amount of time with Dr. Calhoun’s reviews will be time well spent. Below I have selected a representative handful of reviews that I particularly admire but I cannot do him justice here. Please spend time at his Amazon directory page.
