The Third Turn Leader and Charitable Giving
Episode #15 of the Third Turn Podcast - A Conversation with Kate Frillmann
Who wouldn't want to talk with Kate? Our visit with her emphasizes the importance of being as thoughtful and plan-ful for charitable giving in the Third Turn as for all other aspects of long-term leadership, succession, and legacy. This is especially vital if a leader cares about the direction and impact of their generous response of giving back.
Kate's perspective is so valuable that her description of cultivating generosity in all three Turns of an Executive Leader's development became a blog post.

The Third Turn Leader and Charitable Giving: Conversation with Kate Frillmann

Posted by Mark L. Vincent on Feb 25, 2021 9:00:00 AM
In the upcoming Episode 15 of the Third Turn Podcast, we talk with Kate Frillmann, a colleague and Senior Consultant with Design Group International. Our topic: taking a forethought approach to charitable giving as seasoned executive leaders entering Third Turns and taking up the Maestro's baton.  At this time in life,  charitable giving often involves the leader's estate, the capacity to give out of the organization(s) they lead, and the generosity they foster in the work culture - one of the ingredients that makes a company a "great place to work."
Kate has helped guide the development of an impressive list of organizations, where she grew her subject matter expertise on major donors and corporate donors. The American Heart Association, Northwestern University, Michigan State University (I'm sensing a Big 10 theme here!), Hope College, D.A. Blodgett-St. John's, and the Van Andel Institute are all on this list.  
Kate walks us through the development of charitable intent and behaviors as executive leadership capacity grows. She has graciously agreed to share more of her thoughts in an upcoming Third Turn blog post. Enjoy!
