“Business and human endeavors are systems…we tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system. And wonder why our deepest problems never get solved.”
― Peter M. Senge
The word ‘engage’ automatically triggers another – employees. That’s what organizations usually talk about – employee engagement. However, engagement is far beyond that.
Organizations need engagement from other stakeholders too, who are equally critical to their survival and growth. Customers, suppliers, vendors, financial institutions, the community – all need to be engaged to help organizations craft their strategies.
Leaders today have to recognize the interplay between functions, and their impact on the organization before they make decisions. Facilitators support organizations to explore linkages, and devise process to engage with all the actors in the system. Skilled facilitators design processes that engage all functions, and bring about interactions that allow groups first to recognize and realize the impact of the interplay, and then help co-create plans that are inclusive.
