What are you up against?

In your role, you have to deal with different stakeholders, from different departments. And that’s pretty busy. One stakeholder wants this. The other wants that. And that changes every so often.

You are regularly informed too late (or not at all) by stakeholders, which causes problems. When you communicate with stakeholders, you notice that the message often does not get across (or not enough).

So how do you set your priorities? How do you avoid becoming a plaything for your stakeholders? How do you make sure your proposals land? How do you make sure you are engaged by your stakeholders. In other words: how do you achieve results together?

The objective of this program

This program makes you more effective in dealing with different stakeholders and different interests.

After this you will be better able to:

You effectively engage in the conversation with your stakeholder about setting the right priorities. Your mutual relationship strengthens. You also get along with difficult stakeholders.

You know how to recognise and deal with resistance. You are able to communicate your proposals and plans in such a way that you get stakeholders on board.

Who is this program for?

We understand that you have little time and thus little desire to absorb dry theory. We also understand that you hate long-winded training sessions.

That’s why you don’t get any thick readers or books in this program. We have translated all concepts into short online learning missions. You can play these via your phone or PC at any time of the day. You score points and try to beat your fellow participants.

The training sessions are purely for practicing, practicing, practicing. So no long-winded explanations by the trainer. But to work directly with your fellow participants. With practical exercises. Which are instructive and inspiring!

Program modules:

In the first module, you will learn more about your own stakeholder environment. What are your stakeholders trying to achieve? How can you mutually create value? How do you start the start-up conversation with your stakeholder? This will help you (together with your stakeholder) arrive at the right priorities.

You don’t always have your stakeholders to choose from. So you have to be able to work together with difficult characters. How do you do that?

We make you aware of your own preferred style in dealing with ‘difficult‘ stakeholders. You then learn to apply other styles. So that the situation does not escalate but mutual understanding arises. And so you can work together with ‘difficult’ characters.

Organisations are always changing. This can sometimes be difficult for yourself to deal with. But in your turn you cause this movement yourself. When you launch ideas, make proposals or take initiatives that have an impact on stakeholders.

What do you encounter in both cases? Resistance. In this module you will learn where that resistance comes from. And how you can effectively remove it for yourself and others.

Ultimately you can only have impact if you are able to get others on board. This requires effective and convincing communication. In this module you will learn the secret of effective communication. And we provide you with techniques that enable you to move your stakeholders with your ideas.
