Facilitation skills rooted in equity and healing are foundational to being an effective leader in the 21st century. These skills are transferable to any multi-constituency and diverse participatory setting and across any topic of collaborative effort. These skills are indispensable in the diverse communities where movement organizing and social enterprise happens. Where groups seek to serve the collective or public good, facilitation is essential. All facilitators become leaders. Not all leaders are born facilitators.
