There are many opportunities for leadership during games, both in-game and out. What skills do you have that can help make the play experience better for everyone? How do you guide play respectfully in a GMless game? Find out how to take the lead, and how to use the tools games give us to do it.

Brie will use concepts and worksheets from the web show Leading with Class in a special workshop where you’ll build your leadership character sheet. Materials provided.
