Stakeholder Trust – Stakeholders (internal and external) can be your greatest resource OR the greatest impediment to achieving your organization’s goals. To gain stakeholder trust, you must understand how your stakeholders are convinced. Studies show that emotions trump data when people make decisions about you and your initiatives. Therefore, it is crucial that you engage stakeholders at an emotional level to achieve real influence.
