Building relationships is at the heart of the work we do as organizers, and the key to building the power we need to create change.
The relationships we build not only become sources of new resources and interests, but also of leadership, imagination, and commitment to a shared future of working together on behalf of a common purpose.
And while relationship building is something we do everyday in our lives, it takes practice to be able to build relationships in a way that is intentional, generative, and transformational.
That’s why we’re excited to share that our next skill practice session is on relationship building through 1:1’s! Come join us on June 11th to get on the bike together and strengthen our relationship building muscles.
In order to ensure an in-depth learning experience for everyone, the session will be limited to 30 seats – we’ll close the registrations once the seats are filled, so be sure to sign up early to get a spot!
