THE GIFT OF ASKING: MAKING YOUR CASE IN EVERY CASE

Free but advance reservations required by March 25.

Asking someone for a gift utilizes every essential leadership skill. It involves presence, deep listening, relationship building, storytelling, and much more. It is also an opportunity to make a meaningful personal connection, have a value-based conversation, and help someone participate in the gift of giving. Join Rae Ringel for a radical reframing of the fundraising process, one founded on creating a productive mindset attuned to your organization and values. Within this new framework, develop skills to create a concise, compelling, honest, and persuasive pitch.

Rae Ringel is a certified executive coach and founder of the Ringel Group. She is a faculty member at Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership, founding director of Georgetown's certificate program in the Art of Facilitation and Design, and on the adjunct faculty at the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business.

The Center for Jewish Leadership is supported by a generous grant from the Crown Family. Spertus Institute is a partner with the Jewish United Fund in serving our community.
