Mindcamp Choice Session Description

Know Your Personal Stakeholders

(Maggie Dugan, Timothy Dunne)
60 minutes

“Part of me wants to, and part of me doesn’t.” Have you ever said this?

Within you there are many different parts – different voices that represent the many roles you’ve played, or still play, in your life. We call these different parts personal stakeholders. Your personal stakeholders can help you, and they can inhibit you. If you know them better, you can use them to fuel your creativity and enhance your ability to communicate clearly with your family, friends and colleagues.

Learn more about how you solve problems, make decisions and communicate with others by exploring these different parts of you.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Inventory your personal individual stakeholders
  • Meet and listen to these stakeholders, and understand how they impact you on a day-to-day basis
  • Learn how to develop strategies to deliberately call upon your personal stakeholders to help you solve problems, make decisions and communicate creatively
Maggie Dugan
Barcelona, Spain
Maggie’s key stakeholder is workshop designer and facilitator, who love to create events that provoke innovation: creativity workshops, leadership development programs, and helping scientists develop more innovative research proposals. Maggie is part of the facilitation team at Knowinnovation (KI), and head of its initiative, Inclusive Innovation, which uses the same methodology to activate innovation working with the global south.

Maggie designed and facilitates the Africa Science Leadership Program (ASLP) and a similar program in Southeast Asia, the ASEAN-SLP, to inspire early- and mid-career scientists to explore and redefine what it means to be a creative, collaborative science leader within their institutions, their countries and their regions.

Timothy Dunne
Barcelona, Spain
One of Timęs favorite personal stakeholders can transform a room full of jet-lagged scientists into a cathedral of laughter, energizing them for a day of vigorous innovation. Bringing the principals of structured creativity to academic researchers with his colleagues at Knowinnovation has been the Focus of Timęs last decade of work. Tim is also co-author, with Tim Hurson, of a book entitled Never Be Closing: How to Sell Better Without Screwing Your Clients, Your Colleagues, or Yourself.

Tim loves nothing better than to see people realize their dreams and achieve their true potential. That’s why he and Maggie serve as a volunteer staff and sit on the board for the non-profit Summer Stars Camp for the Performing Arts, a summer camp for economically disadvantaged youth that gives kids the chance to discover themselves and their potential through the performing arts.
