“Art of the Ask” - July 13 or July 27 (10 AM – Noon)
This workshop is designed for those who learn how to ask for money/donations for their favorite charity or community organization. You will learn the process of being comfortable when asking for money whether it’s cash/check or an in-kind donation. It starts with projecting trustworthiness. The psychological elements of how people learn to trust others will be explored. We will discuss how this process can work for you through a series of role playing exercises. We start simple and work our way through more complex and expensive commitments.
