Leaders within non-profit organizations spend a great deal of time and energy ensuring that their organization’s mission and vision are communicated widely and accurately. While that approach is effective to build trust within your community, a more personalized approach must be taken when building individual donor relationship. Instead of communicating to donors and prospects, we must listen and communicate with them to be most effective and to ultimately reach out goal. Using the research discussed in Malcom Gladwell’s book Talking To Strangers and Kate Murphy’s book You’re Not Listening: What You’re Missing and Why It Matters, this session will highlight what is known about effective communication skills and discuss how to apply that information to cultivation, solicitation and stewardship within the donor pipeline.
