“Nobody performs better under pressure. Regardless of the task, pressure ruthlessly diminishes our judgment, decision making, attention, dexterity and performance in every professional and personal arena.

How do you reduce your pressure? How do you alleviate your staff’s pressure so they can focus and perform?

After learning more about Hank Weisinger’s, author of Performing Under Pressure, conclusive research, you can’t help but realize that pressure management should be a baseline competency for every leader.

Weisinger will touch on the following topics:

LANO members: Don't miss FREE webinar on how to raise more money with Asking Rights

Posted By Kris H. Rutledge, CausePlanet, Monday, June 27, 2016

How can you sustain your nonprofit through more than emotional appeals? 

Higher-level donors (investors) are more interested in outcomes and investing over time in nonprofits. Tom Ralser, author of Asking Rights: Why Some Nonprofits Get Funded (and Some Don't), shows you how using emotional appeals exclusively is no longer enough. He guides you through the process of developing your Asking Rights to convince investors to fund you for a more sustainable future.

Convince funders to support you by developing your Asking Rights

Posted By Kris H. Rutledge, CausePlanet, Wednesday, June 1, 2016

How do you reach higher-level investors to sustain your nonprofit?

What if emotional appeals aren't enough? How can you get funders to truly invest in your nonprofit for the long-term? 

Tom Ralser, after spending more than two decades working in and with nonprofits, witnessed the nearly exclusive use of emotional appeals.

 

But now times have changed.  

 

Higher-level donors (investors) are more interested in outcomes and investing over time in nonprofits. In Ralser's book, Asking Rights: Why Some Nonprofits Get Funded (and Some Don't), he guides you through the process of developing your Asking Rights to convince investors to fund you for a more sustainable future.
