Stakeholder Consulting

Identify and implement effective stakeholder engagement strategies to more easily accomplish your organization’s goals.
How You Succeed – Trust is the foundation of successful stakeholder relations and rapport is the bridge. Data alone does not earn stakeholder trust, yet many organizations spend a great deal of time on data to influence their stakeholders. Studies now show emotions override data when people make decisions! Our stakeholder consultants are Certified Master Practitioners in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the study of behavior and language patterns, and we have studied emotions and other behavioral filters for years. We will help you strike the right balance with data and strategies to connect with your stakeholders at an emotional level.
How We Can Help – We know that people naturally resist messages that confront their core filters – identity, beliefs, culture, emotions and perspectives, and this is why many organizations fail to effectively earn trust and influence stakeholders. First, our consultants will help you identify key stakeholders important to your goals. Second, we will help you clearly identify their core filters, concerns and expectations. Third, we will help you develop the appropriate data and messages to connect with your stakeholders. In addition, we will advise you on an outreach plan for using the media, social media and other programs to engage key groups and individuals. Stronger stakeholder relations can simply open more doors of opportunity for your organization.
