This is a key insight, Gideon, which requires as much art as science, especially when dealing with communities involving multiple cultural backgrounds that place priority on one side of the balance or the other. That said, the richer the variety and range of relationships that are established early on, the greater the likelihood of identifying the right task at the right time for the person who has been waiting for just that opportunity. This may happen immediately, or after months, even years of patient cultivation. So perhaps another axis to this balance is holding the tension between short-term gains or pressing needs and the "long game" toward adaptable sustainability.
Engagement is the process of building relationships with people and putting those relationships to work to accomplish some goal.

Worked for six years as partner and General Manager of International Marketing Communications for a Tokyo-based enterprise, with responsibility for the preparation and quality control for all English-language materials, including annual reports, corporate profiles, corporate social responsibility reports, marketing presentations, narration scripts, product brochures, and Web sites.
