September 2018 Monthly Dinner Meeting

Join us Thursday September 27th for a Dinner Meeting in Thousand Oaks

Topic: What to Do When Your Stakeholders Won’t Talk to You

Why is it so difficult to persuade some people to share information? Don’t they know that you are just trying to help them? Better business solutions are not produced out of thin air.

Better business solutions come from an understanding of the problems and opportunities and strategies that are rattling around in the minds of your stakeholders. Now, all you need is for your stakeholders to transfer that information to you and your team. And often times they do. But sometimes, they either cannot or will not share their knowledge. When this occurs, you almost never get to cancel the project. Now, everyone looks to you to figure it out. Let’s look at some approaches to collaborating and gathering information from uncooperative stakeholders. You can turn those difficult stakeholders into cherished business partners.
