#85 | Are you a “How Am I Doing” fundraiser?

I was very grateful when Holly reached out to me after reading my book and suggested that we talk about the three fundraising personalities that I described in The War for Fundraising Talent. Holly introduces herself as someone who fell in love with fundraising in college and believes the profession offers a significant opportunity to young professionals.

Holly, like myself, describes herself as the How Am I Doing motive type which is consistent with those individuals who have a high implicit need for achievement. Everything that Holly shared about herself is consistent with the How Am I Doing personality, and I suspect the opportunities and challenges she routinely encounters in her work align with this motive-type.

I’m very grateful to Ian for introducing me to Holly and I’m looking forward to being with both of them in February to talk about my forthcoming book.
