This season, we’re getting right to the heart of communications as a power skill. A lot of people think of communications as a soft skill, but Harvard Business Review just released a study saying it is the single most important skill for organizational leaders to master ... and we agree. Here’s why: communicators have the power to unite. We have the power to understand, and we have the power to drive change, from top down, bottom up and side to side. Communicators have the power to change the world, for good.

So, this season, we’re going to check in with some folks doing just that.

key source for social good communicators

As someone who’s worked in social change for over 20 years, I appreciate these conversations so much. The breadth and diversity of voices and experiences make the series not just useful, but inspirational, and I agree — whatever the change you want to see, it’s largely a communications challenge!
