La persona que preside la reunión establece el tono de la misma. El o ella debe conocer las palabras mágicas para un encuentro ordenado, placentero y productivo. Saber qué decir y cuándo decirlo le dará confianza sobre cómo manejar una moción, su discusión y el decidir sobre la misma. (Spanish-language version of What to Say and When.)
