Leadership: Working with Volunteers by Gary M. Nelson at Gazza’s Corner on 20 May 2012.
A great blog article about volunteer leadership considerations. Remember, they’re not doing it for money!
“Rules of Engagement for Volunteers There are a few key things we need to keep in mind regarding volunteers: – We need them! The world revolves around volunteer efforts. – They don’t have to be here. They want to be here. At least, unless you drive them away. – They want to make a difference. This is why we volunteer. – They need to be respected and valued. We all do! – They need to be given something useful to do. Don’t give them idle work. – They are buying into the Vision. They will give heart and soul when they do.”
