Did you know that you have stakeholders?

Who are your stakeholders?

Anything you do has stakeholders. Stakeholders are people who are affected by what you do, and therefore have an interest, a stake, in it.

They have an interest in what you do, how well you do it, when you do it, and if you care about them while you do it.

So, who are your stakeholders, and do you care about them?

Think about something you are about to do and make a mental note of who it will affect and how it will affect them. In some cases, you may be the only stakeholder, but usually there will be many; colleagues, family, friends, customers, the public, and perhaps even the planet.

If you feel like doodling, grab a piece of paper, and write the task in the middle. Then draw lines outwards and label them with all the stakeholders you can think of. You could get fancy and add a rating to each line on how much the stakeholder will be affected by the task.

Notice as you think about the consequences for stakeholders, your attitude to the task changes, and you may even decide to do it a little differently or involve some of the stakeholders.

So… which task will you think about first?

My best wishes, Paul
