WE KNOW – How
Drive the car – it’s ready for you
Apply what you know and do best as a HR Business Partner and Leader at your company to your Volunteer Leadership position with SHRM and you will be successful.
You will be successful because you are using the same concepts that you use EVERY day and it will be easier because you aren’t having to expend extra energy creating something that you already know.
WE KNOW - Recruitment
Do you have one? How do you communicate it?
I want to be a volunteer because of “X”
Realistic Job Preview
Expectations, time commitment, etc.
Put people in positions that fit their “passion” and/or strengths so they can be successful
Make sure your new volunteer has the training and resources that will be beneficial in that role.
WE KNOW – Engagement and Performance
Remember they are volunteers
Contingency planning for important tasks.
Edward Deming philosophy – people want to be successful – look for the “root” cause and remove barriers.
Re-engage – connect to their personal “value add” to encourage them to follow through.
Hold accountable when you have to.
WE KNOW - Leadership
Use Personal Leadership “not” Positional Leadership
Personal = “Want to follow”
Positional = “Have to follow”
Diversity is a “treat”
More and different ideas that will “stretch” your group
Challenge is to help others recognize value of others
WE KNOW – Recognition and Rewards
Know your volunteer and recognize accordingly
Make time to do it – don’t assume they know
Make sure you are considering their “value proposition”
