Engagement

Engagement is a spectrum; it is not binary by-nature as it is often described. Meaning, we often make references that people are engaged or they are not. In fact, engagement flares, dims and flares up again depending on the conditions to which we can direct our energies, passions, contributions and the like.

Bringing people together can inspire powerful, positive action or it can be ineffective with people feeling powerless leaving apathy to settle in. Designing your engagement activities for effective levels of engagement is a crucial but often an overlooked/undervalued activity. Sadly, when convening is not done well it is almost always expensive and/or could lead to unintended consequences that make leaders hesitate to bring groups together at all.
