You will learn this in Stakeholder Engagement

To maximize your impact, you need a strong base of support among the stakeholders who make up the community around you. It starts with establishing trust-based relationships that promise mutual benefits for everyone involved. With a clear understanding of what matters to your stakeholders, you are well positioned to attract their interest and win them over to your cause.

This course opens you up to various styles of stakeholder engagement, so that you are equipped to reach different audiences and effectively manage their expectations. You will enhance your awareness, knowledge and skills to build valuable relationships that help you to achieve your goals.


  • Stakeholders see you as a trusted partner who takes their interests to heart
  • Stakeholders engage in dialog with you and show openness towards your ideas
  • Stakeholders benefit from the win-win situations you develop alongside them


During the course we will explore topics like aligning your personal values, talents and goals with stakeholder engagement. Understanding the dynamics of trust-based, mutually beneficial relationships and becoming aware of unconscious prejudices that affect stakeholder relationships will also be on the agenda. Plus you will learn to deal with resistance and difficult stakeholders, and learn how to develop an action plan to continually improve your stakeholder engagement.
