Find Everyday Moments to Touch the Heart.
Leaders of volunteers may support volunteers in many significant ways just through their sheer presence. One simple, and often overlooked task, is offering feedback to volunteers on their performance.
Most of us desire to know how we are doing in our work. Words of affirmation from a leader can be powerful. Words of gentle guidance and redirection can also increase the volunteer’s self-esteem and sense of contribution. Leaders must be present among their volunteers, ready to “catch them in the act” of doing something great. When they see it, they say it!
Learn proactive steps you can take to sustain the engagement of your volunteers.
