1. Turning an Issue into a Campaign: Everybody has complaints, but an organizer has the skills to turn problems into opportunities. Learn how to sort out the issues you hear from co-workers, recognize the ones that have organizing potential, and bring people together to make an escalating plan to solve the problem.

OR

2. How to Have an Organizing Conversation: Organizing conversations are the key tool for engaging your co-workers, taking action and getting results.
