Leading Volunteers with FORCE

One of the greatest management and leadership challenges is leading volunteers effectively and efficiently. Volunteers, so it seems, don’t listen to orders, do whatever they want at their own schedule, and can leave at any time, all because they are not paid. However, it is said that volunteers and volunteerism is America at our best. Harnessing the power volunteers and volunteerism can be transformational for any organization if FORCE is applied appropriately. This presentation will address an appropriate way to lead volunteers with great results.


Presentation Objectives

  • Review the 5 key elements of leading volunteers
  • Discuss the (non) differences between volunteers and ‘real’ workers
  • Share a personal story on a major US company requiring their professional employees to volunteer on community service


Three Takeaways

  1. Learn the five key FORCE requirements in leading volunteers
  2. Understand the non-differences between ‘real’ workers and volunteers
  3. Learn the value of volunteering in regards to leadership learning and professional development
