There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about.
Designing a collective process that works for everyone involved is a critical first step in creating a successful collective vision for change. To prepare people to work together, you need to understand how to do the pre-work to build trust and bring together a diverse group; how to create an inclusive, welcoming space; and how to facilitate. These tasks take time and energy, but don’t skimp here. The time and effort you put into laying the groundwork makes extraordinary results possible.
