Does Your Leadership Styles Help Create A Culture for Philanthropy?

Recent research reveals the styles of leadership more likely to promote a culture of philanthropy. In this session, leadership expert Marc A. Pitman shares that research and a surprising discovery the researchers made about three seemingly unrelated systems that set the stage for more effective fundraising. 

You'll leave being able to:

  • Easily identify the four most common types of leadership
  • Put conditions into place for a stronger culture of leadership
  • and have tools for growing in self-confidence


Concord Leadership Group founder Marc A. Pitman, CSP® helps leaders lead their teams with more effectiveness and less stress. His latest book is The Surprising Gift of Doubt: Use Uncertainty to Become the Exceptional Leader You Are Meant to Be. He’s also the author of Ask Without Fear!® – which has been translated into Dutch, Polish, Spanish, and Mandarin.

Marc’s expertise and enthusiasm engage audiences around the world both in person and with online presentations. And has caught the attention of media organizations as diverse as The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Al Jazeera, Fox News, SUCCESS magazine, and Real Simple. Marc tweets regularly at @marcapitman.

He is the husband to his best friend and the father of three amazing kids. And if you drive by him on the road, he’ll be singing 80’s tunes loud enough to embarrass his family!
