Stakeholder Assessment

Accurately identify and assess the needs and criteria of key stakeholders, so you can develop an effective outreach plan to build trust and strengthen relationships.
How You Succeed – Effective stakeholder engagement starts with a reliable assessment to identify key stakeholders, along with their concerns and expectations. Stakeholders are simply more willing to work with you to achieve a mutual set of goals when they understand your goals and trust you and your motives. Real influence requires you to connect with stakeholders at an emotional level, because studies how emotions are more influential than data when people make decisions. Therefore, it is imperative that you strike the right balance with data and emotional alignment. Also, we know that people naturally resist messages that confront their core filters -- identity, beliefs, emotions and perspectives, and that is why many organizations fall short on their stakeholder goals.
How We Can Help – Our consultants are Certified Master Practitioners in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the study of behavior and language patterns, allowing us to uncover the core filters -- emotions, criteria, beliefs, values and perspectives most important to your stakeholders. This information is crucial for you to build an effective and targeted plan to improve or maintain your stakeholder relationships. First, our consultants will help you identify key stakeholders related to your goals. Second, we will conduct an assessment to help you clearly identify their concerns and expectations, along with their core filters. Third, we will help you understand how to use this information to improve your stakeholder relationships and open more doors of opportunity for your organization. Our goal is to give you the edge you need to win with your stakeholders.
