What Would You Do? WWYD

Four simple words, but such a powerful question to ask of your peers.  “What Would You Do?”

We bring this topic to #grantchat on a regular basis. It has become a favorite for #grantchat as it gives us a chance to have the whole community weigh in on topics that we are frequently being asked.  In most cases, the questions we pose don’t have a black and white right or wrong answer, rather they have a range of acceptable and ethical responses that need to be considered carefully in each situation to see how they best fit within your organizational culture.

If you have a blog post or have an article that you would like to share about the concept, we would love for you to do so in the comment section or by using the #grantchat on the social media network of your choice.
