Using Transaction Skills: Organizations

(Conflict Resolution, Negotiation, Trust Building, Facilitation, Communication)

Community Heart & Soul

Summary of Self-Description: Community Heart & Soul engages a motivated and dedicated group of individuals to help your town identify what matters most. We help people shape the future of their communities by actively seeking the collective wisdom of all residents, improving local decision-making, creating a shared sense of belonging, and ultimately strengthening the social, cultural, and economic vibrancy of each place.

Crucial Conversations

Summary of Self-Description: Crucial Conversations mission is to improve the world by helping people improve themselves. Through courses and books, we help people learn behaviors that have a disproportionate impact on outcomes. We call these behaviors crucial skills. Skills target the moments in life that have greatest potential to affect outcomes – moments of disagreement, risk, or change. We help people learn to communicate effectively when both risk and opportunity are greatest: when opinions vary, stakes are high, and emotions run strong. In other words, when it counts. More >>

Essential Partners

Summary of Self-Description: Essential Partners helps people build relationships across differences to address their communities’ most pressing challenges. Through healthier, more inclusive dialogue, people strengthen relationships while gaining new insight into themselves and each other. The strength of relationships rooted in trust and mutual understanding empowers people to address challenges – from partisan polarization and political dysfunction to interfaith conflicts and abortion access – without compromising their deepest values or identities.

Front Line Leaders Academy

Summary of Self-Description: The Front Line Leaders Academy (FLLA) provides values-based trainings and leadership development to individuals seeking positive social change in their communities. Our mission is to develop women and people of color into campaign professionals who win elections and create a new progressive political system of truly representative government that delivers for marginalized communities.

The Future 500

Summary of Self-Description: We act as bridge builders, trusted counsel, and critical friends to cultivate relationships between companies, advocates, and stakeholders. Because each situation between companies and their stakeholders is unique to their respective cultures, we tailor our approach to allow companies and advocates to step outside of their respective echo chambers and hear what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. We depolarize, we humanize, and we work collaboratively to enable companies and stakeholders to advance durable, positive change. More >>

The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation

Summary of Self-Description: We want a world where community is a common and enduring enterprise – where everyone can come together amid their differences to solve the complex challenges that affect us all. Real, lasting change occurs only when people and communities help lead the solution. We bring people on the front lines of creating change in communities to challenge conventional assumptions, learn together, inspire one another, and strengthen our collective ability to be a force for good.

In This Together

Summary of Self-Description: In This Together is a campaign to help save the environment and repair our democracy by growing a diverse bipartisan community of America’s silenced majority: common sense problem-solvers who have been marginalized by the politics of fear, anger, and division. Our Mission is to connect and empower America's silenced majority of 98M-plus in hope-based campaigns to reclaim democracy, end toxic polarization, and tackle every challenge we face, beginning with climate change. More >>
