Founded in 1981, Dohrmann & Associates works with community-based groups and highly complex national organizations.

We believe in the power of collaboration where people and organizations work together to realize shared goals by exchanging knowledge, learning and building consensus.

We believe in civil discourse which is "the language of dispassionate objectivity which requires the respect of all participants and neither diminishes the other's moral worth, nor questions their good judgement; it avoids hostility, direct antagonism, or excessive persuasion; it requires modesty and an appreciation for the other participant’s experiences."

We believe in the power and value of compromise, which is the concept of finding agreement through communication and a mutual acceptance of terms — often involving variations from an original goal or desire — and which is rooted in the precepts of balance and tolerance.
