Engaging stakeholders: Building a Container for change
Stakeholders engage when they resonate with the content and goal of a Stakeholder Dialogue, regardless of whether it is a stakeholder consultation, a stakeholder platform, a broader initiative or a stakeholder partnership. Initiators of Stakeholder Dialogues often assume that other stakeholders must be interested in the same issue, and are, by default, willing to engage. However, this is probably the exception. The context of most change initiatives involving Stakeholder Dialogues is much more complex: there can be contradicting agendas of stakeholders, conflicting interests or actors who are overwhelmed by other commitments.
