Align around a common goal
We often say that clients hire us either when something really bad has happened with their stakeholder engagement efforts or when they are being intentional about creating a positive and effective stakeholder experience from the on-set of an effort. While we prefer the latter situation, we are well-equipped to help your organization right your stakeholder ship.
We define stakeholder as anyone who has a stake in the outcome of a particular effort. Stakeholder engagement then starts with identifying and understanding those who matter most to your effort. Important questions at this stage include: what is their proximity to your organization, their level of influence, their overall stake in the outcome and the issues that matter most to them. We understand your past experiences and desired future and develop a stakeholder engagement plan that seeks to align vision, build consensus and develop a path forward through a shared purpose.
Depending on the engagement approach for each stakeholder, we may recommend in-depth one on one interviews, small or large group facilitations, team building workshops, surveys and visual communication vehicles tools that provide a clear, visual roadmap to success. The key to our approach with you is that we don’t believe in cookie-cutter engagement approaches; rather, we bring best practices and tools to our discussion with you to ensure you receive a plan that is tailored to your and your stakeholders’ needs.
