When you’re tasked to lead groups, build consensus, and deliver solutions to clients or community stakeholders, the quality of every single interaction matters. Getting your board meetings, community meetings, and internal meetings RIGHT and planning them thoughtfully is a no-brainer, yet so many organizations fail at optimizing these opportunities. Why? Because, surprisingly, many lack key facilitation and people skills to engage others. United Way has become the global leader in engaging and mobilizing people to carry out its mission.
