Here’s a list of what it means to be likeable. MGOs need to be likeable. How do you rate?
MGOs should say to themselves: “I will accept the fact that failure is a doorway to success, and I will keep going. I will learn from failures along the way and get better.”
As a leader, it’s up to YOU to knock down any barrier that impedes your ability to give your donors an incredible, joyful experience.
A major gift officer can have a long list of credentials (schools attended, diplomas, certifications, etc.) and be a total failure at actually doing major gifts. What do you need to succeed?
Why don’t smart, strategic, responsible MGOs live up to their potential? Sometimes they lack the drive, initiative, and push that helps them get things done.
