Leaders are neither born nor made.
Or perhaps more precisely the recipe includes a little of the right DNA, a choice made, and effective nurturing. Associations can have an impact on the latter two with great results.
How can associations have an impact? First, a well thought-out leadership pathway that outlines the levels of volunteering and related competencies can inform and inspire members to make a choice to be a leader.
Second, a robust volunteer management program with a mix of training options, evaluation, mentoring and appropriate recognitions and rewards turns the willingness and intention into leadership.
We can help associations visualize the pathway and craft the plan, identify competencies, and create training programs and leadership resources. We also offer volunteer training to help your volunteer sharpen their skills and knowledge.
