Winning grants has always been competitive and there is more and more pressure from funders to collaborate. Grant writers often serve as informal leaders on teams brought together to work on grant projects. For most of us, its a simply a challenge to keep funding flowing in while maintaining our organizations focus, beauty, and expertise. And, youve probably been involved in a grant collaboration that fell apart or left you feeling short-changed, dominated, or unappreciated.
This course is designed to give you the self-awareness and skills to lead a short-term team to success and collaborate on grant projects where everyone gets on, work gets done, and goals get accomplished.
