CoreCentric™

Discover Your Right-Fit Role

Board members often express concern about raising money. However, there is finally a better way to tailor each unique leader’s involvement in fund development activities. CoreCentric™: Discover Your Right Fit Role helps board members uncover clear and specific donor engagement activities that fit their own natural strengths, constraints, interests and preferences. This liberates leaders to focus on high-impact activities that are within their personal comfort and confidence zones. This simple, actionable (and dare we say it–FUN!) system has been embraced by board members as a straight-forward way to set their fear of fundraising aside and to get actively involved in advancing a cause they care about. This system can be used as a solitaire game or as a group exercise. One double-deck box covers six board or staff members and costs $49.95 + shipping.

CoreCentric™ helps leaders uncover their natural preferences to then identify right-fit roles in advancing philanthropy. The key here is “natural”, since we all develop skills in areas we don’t necessarily enjoy. Leaders should select cards that resonate with who they are all the time and when they are doing what they like to do rather than situationally or because they are “good” at it.

CoreCentric™ can be a solitaire game or a group exercise. In solitaire, leaders go through the entire deck to select five cards that best fit who they are. In group, cards are spread on a table to let the group look at cards simultaneously and to let each individual select five cards. After cards are selected, leaders flip the cards over to identify their dominant color group.

Colors link to a right-fit role profile. Please note that colors are on the backside of cards to decrease selection bias, and selections should be made without drawing attention to colors in advance. Profiles and roles should be shared after each person has completed the card selection process.
