Participants review coaching tools introduced in the Major Gift Officer Learning Series:

  • Donor Development Chart
  • Priority Grid
  • Personality Profiles
  • Nine Navigation Points for Strategy
  • Process for Locating Philanthropic Passion

Participants plan how they will lead by example to best equip their teams to apply each tool habitually.

Participants step through each of the nine Navigation Points and experienced managers discuss how they have embedded these concepts in their work—what has worked well, and what they would like advice on improving.

Participants discuss their common challenges in coaching team members to greatest advantage and brainstorm how to address these challenges.

Participants create an action plan to commit to supporting their team members regularly, strategically, and intentionally before, during, and after the series.
