Emotionally Intelligent Fundraising
by Kedren Crosby, Work Wisdom

Emotional Intelligence is how we perceive and express ourselves, build and maintain interpersonal
relationships, cope with stress and use emotional data to solve problems and make decisions. EQ is
actually something you can tangibly develop, whereas both Personality and IQ are fairly fixed. Research
consistently proves that it is our EQ and not our IQ that most significantly impacts our success in the

Increasingly EI is being used to improve and increase performance and outcomes. Because of the highly relational nature of fund development, we can use EQ intentionally to develop ourselves and our results.  EQs are
measurements of EI and can assess individuals or teams and can identify means of improving the
performance of the individual, the team and the organization. EI is also used as a method for identifying
leadership potential among team members and is increasingly used in hiring decisions.

Join us to learn more about your own EQ as well as means of developing EQ to optimize yourself and
your team’s performance.

"How to Fix Your Productivity to Amp Up Your Results" presented by Chad Barger, CNP, CFRE, Founder & Fundraising Strategist-Trainer-Coach, Productive Fundraising

Join AFP Master Trainer and #productivitynerd, Chad Barger, for a fast-paced session filled with tips (hacks) for fundraisers, executive directors and boards to raise more money, by working smarter, not harder.

This presentation focuses on improving both the fundraiser (via personal productivity hacks, e.g. managing time, email, meetings, etc.) and the fundraising (via planning, discovery, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship hacks).  Attendees will discover their own personal productivity style and have a chance to share what works for them as @fundraiserchad crowd sources even more tips from the audience.  You’ll leave this workshop energized and with 50+ ideas on how to fix your productivity to amp up your fundraising results.
