Every organisation has relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders that can affect both its own performance, its communities and its wider impact. In this half-day session, developed and delivered by NEF Consulting senior associate Vincent Neate, you will learn how to improve your organisation’s stakeholder relationships through a better understanding of:
- Relational Thinking – the practice of putting the relationship first in everything you do. You can use this one structural model in both one-to-one relationships and in relationships that involve many people.
- Relationships as a response to the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) environment.
- The Common Good Builder, a problem-solving methodology designed to bring multiple stakeholders together to find a mutually agreed and satisfactory solution to a common problem. Organisations can use the Common Good Builder in problem solving with stakeholder groups, team building, setting objectives and goals, innovation, crisis recovery, and community engagement. It was first developed by Together for the Common Good.
