Date: Mon, Aug 24th, 2020
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description:

In this talk, master interviewer and fundraiser Frank Sesno explains how you can use something you probably take for granted–-the questions you ask-–to make your organization more innovative, creative, and successful.

Given the overwhelming volume of information prospect development encounters daily, a single, simple question can be disruptive if you know what you’re after, understand how you listen, and ask more. How can prospect development professionals use questions to spark creativity and craft persuasive stories? How do effective leaders learn, engage members of their teams, and inspire confidence through engaging colleagues with questions? How do questions convey trust and create empathy with colleagues throughout advancement?

As author of Ask More: The Power of Questions to Open Doors, Uncover Solutions and Spark Change, Frank will provide clear examples and practical ideas to foster a more open, collaborative, and high-impact workplace.
