Stakeholder Engagement

Table Globe & Stars

It takes multiple parties at the table to make a full circle. Creating that loop requires:

  • Comprehensive subject-matter expertise
  • Knowledge of and natural ease with process and group dynamics
  • Careful recruitment of appropriate and sufficient parties
  • Comfort with discomfort and turbulence
  • Skill in applying mediation and facilitation principles
  • Clear guidelines going in
  • Willingness to course-correct during the journey, and
  • Ability to achieve a landing in which all parties feel substantially grounded.

On behalf of clients, Full Circle staff has served as a delegate to stakeholder dialogues (e.g. carpet, electronics, pharmaceuticals).  We have also directly organized and implemented stakeholder engagement (e.g. pharmaceuticals, automotive, carpet).

As the negotiation aphorism teaches: If you are not at the table, you may end up on the menu. In that light, let Full Circle help you arrange your guest list, catering options, wine list, and decor to assure a positive outcome for all stakeholders.
