Benchmark also offers Stakeholder Analysis & Mapping to help you discover stakeholder criteria and expectations.
Earning Stakeholder Trust – Trust is the foundation of successful stakeholder relations and this stakeholder communication training will ensure you have the skills necessary to build trust and solidify stakeholder relationships. When stakeholders understand and trust your organization, doors of opportunity open up. To gain trust, it is crucial that you engage stakeholders at an emotional level. Studies show people are more influenced by emotions than by data. Our stakeholder engagement experts also know that people naturally resist messages that confront their core filters, such as culture, identity, beliefs, emotions and perspectives. This is why many organizations fall short in their efforts to trust and influence stakeholders.
The Process – First, our experts will assess the results of your stakeholder research. Second, we will help you understand the role of emotions and other core filters that determine how stakeholders perceive your organization. Third, we will equip your people with communication skills to effectively establish trust with your stakeholders. After the training your people will be equipped to move forward in unity with “one voice” to engage your stakeholders.
