When we feel good, we show up well and achieve more. For leaders and fundraisers this is vital to success: much rides on how you come across to supporters and stake-holders and on how you handle yourself through highs and lows back at the office. As a major gifts specialist I care deeply about donors and benefactors; but what of the people driving and doing the fundraising? At More Partnership we work with extraordinary clients who contribute to the world. I love coaching their people to unlock potential; working through limiting beliefs (we all have them), strengthening resilience and powering-up authenticity and energy. One popular resilience strategy is ‘benefit hunting’: when a ‘yes’ becomes a ‘not now’, take time to pin down the good stuff happening around the relationship. Take due credit for it, use this insight to shape your next action and move forward.

Testimonials

"Florence coached me through several challenging donor situations with a high level of tact and professionalism, and also provided me with valuable advice based on her own extensive experience in the development sector. I credit Florence with significantly easing my transition into major gifts fundraising and would highly recommend her as a coach and mentor".
