Transformational Stakeholder Engagement

Modern organisations are facing new and uncertain environments with networks of interconnected stakeholders and increasingly complex and challenging conditions. Against this backdrop, organisations must make the shift from volume to value; from the transactional to the transformational. Embracing this focus means collaboration and communication are more important than ever before.

The Collaborative Core is a proven methodology that enables individuals, teams and organisations to communicate, collaborate, negotiate and innovate more effectively.

Through Collaborative Core, we develop an understanding of the behaviours, needs, objectives and challenges of key audiences to make better quality decisions and take more purposeful actions.

Using the program’s powerful 9 components we can prepare, conduct and follow-up conversations with both internal colleagues and external stakeholders in a more collaborative way. This approach encourages us to be less positional in our perspective and more creative in generating solutions. It enables us to fine-tune our questioning, listening and strategic planning skills.

The foundations of the program stem from the 7 Elements of the Harvard Negotiation Project which have successfully been adapted and built upon to create the Collaborative Core.

The programme is a mixture of experiential workshop-based training supported by ongoing management coaching, with further blended learning and online resources also available.  We will work closely with you to ensure these key elements of The Collaborative Core are tailored to meet the particular requirements of your teams and organisation.
