Engage Stakeholders

Stakeholder engagement is a function of values, purpose, and clarity of roles. The deeper the resonance stakeholders feel between their personal values and the values of the organization, the greater the potential engagement.


This potential is activated by shared purpose and a clear articulation of the role each person plays in realizing that purpose. People are most engaged when they clearly understand the part the play in manifesting an organizational purpose that they feel is directly connected with their personal values.

Center for Nonviolent Communication

The Center used Synanim to create a mission statement, engaging nearly 200 stakeholders from around the world. Inspired by this experience, Board member and Brazilian political activist, Dominic Barter sought to use Synanim to enable constituents to draft legislation, which Brazilian law allows. He had the support of a Brazilian Senator but the project was abandoned when the Bolsonaro government was elected in 2018.
