See what members are saying about Asking Matters

"When I ran across Asking Matters and the Asking Styles Assessment, I finally realized anyone could ask, and success is based more on catering to one’s particular strengths than trying to be something one is not. I feel so much more comfortable with my role now."

Kylie Pierce

Develoment Officer
Rome Capitol Theatre

"Asking Matters does a great job of focusing on the asker and what strengths he or she brings to the table. I find great comfort in being able to approach the asking process through the lens of Styles, particularly when I’m training board members or volunteers."

Ninette Enrique

Director of Development
St. Lukes School of New Canaan, CT

"It wasn’t until I learned about the Asking Styles and that I was a Kindred Spirit that I understood I don’t have to be everything to be great at my job and make an impact. This has led to much less stress which means I’m more present, confident, and authentic with donors and prospects."
