Nenda Pamoja—Stakeholder engagement and bringing the organisation on the journey

Cat wranglers apply within


You’d think it would be enough to do a good job. But no good job goes unpunished. There’s always someone who raises a red flag, a risk, a new requirement, or just plain refuses to get with the program.

Often stakeholder management can feel like herding cats!

Your own personal catnip-laced lure lies within, along with proven tools and techniques for improving your engagement and bringing the organisation with you on the journey.

“Ikiwa unataka kwenda mbali, nenda pamoja”

“If you want to go far, go together”

African proverb


Clear priorities

Work out the key relationships to focus on, so you don’t have to be all things to all people


Need vs want

Learn how to determine what your stakeholders actually need (not just what they say they want)


Reduce complexity

Practise reducing complexity by aligning requirements rather than just ‘gathering requirements’


Expanded influence

Learn how to identify what motivates different people and how to structure influential conversations.

“Dealing with stakeholders used to be a big challenge for me, but the Peak State program has given me reliable, structured techniques for liaising with stakeholders regardless of their background. I’m now much more confident and effective, regardless of whether my task is to inspire, persuade, gather requirements or gain buy-in. I highly recommend the course to anyone in a leadership role.”
