You're a Go-Getter!

big picture / high energy / creative / quick / engaging

Your confidence leads you to base your decisions on intuition rather than on analysis. This results in the ability to think quickly and fluidly, which enables you to relate well to donors in the moment and to think quickly on your feet. You are an extrovert with a natural enthusiasm and energy that draws people to you.

Your Secondary Style is Rainmaker. Your Rainmaker indicates that you’re solidly extroverted. It also indicates that you’ve got some analytic skills that don't come as easily to Go-Getter/Kindred Spirits.

What fellow Go-Getters have to say

“As a Go-Getter, I enjoy expressing my feelings but have learned not everyone else does. By understanding the 4 styles, I am getting better at assessing donors more quickly to understand what Style may be their dominant. Knowing that Style, I can adjust my approach, earn trust more quickly with the donor, and make them more comfortable. This opens up the space for more meaningful conversations. More meaningful conversations lead to larger gifts that donors are excited to make.”

"I learned that I was a “Go-Getter” and my CEO is a “Mission Controller.” Suddenly it became clear why we’ve struggled to get the right balance of prep materials for visits, because he prefers a wealth of information while I get overwhelmed with too much. It was fascinating to understand how different our approaches are, but in many ways how complementary. It made us more efficient in our pre-work, made us more effective on our donor visits, and provided us with a common framework to use in talking about development."
