Use a variety of tools for collecting input

Make sure that you can hear from people in a variety of ways - some participants might be chatty, others might like to write, and others might just want to answer questions. Mix it up and have methods available to engage everyone.

Balance the ease of participation with showing that input is valued!

Really helps to treat people like experts- reach out in a way that shows why you are asking for their input in particular, and then make it as easy as possible for them to engage. Ie: honour both their knowledge and their time.

A roadmap to decision making authority needs to be clearly articulated.

Too often decision making authority is not clearly laid out or is removed from the process, giving the impression of lip service. Ideally decision makers are involved and accesible in an engagment process.

Meaningful engagement, not just numbers.

We need to get away from the 'we engaged with 5000 people' (4950 who said "leave me alone")...

Include stakeholders and partners in planning to plan

Include partners and stakeholders early so there is a greater chance that people will participate AND be satisfied with the process.

Understand that brainstorming (like using IdeaShare) is probably just a first step in an engagement process

Brainstorming and initial prioritizing are great. But often we need to structure and make sense of the input, separate facts and values, and prioritize objectives and actions in a more structured way.

For staff engagement, conduct regular employee engagement surveys

This helps understand what’s working in your organization, and it will make your employees feel valued.

Sharing back results of engagement

It is important that engagement is a 2-way street and participants see how their input is incorporated (or not)
