Focus on outcomes rather than checklists

Build a dashboard based on meaningful metrics

How many of us struggle with getting chapter volunteers to submit reports? How many of us have a file folder full of individual spreadsheets or reports? Maybe you even have some great chapter data, but are you able to make this data meaningful for your chapters, your board or even your staff? When attempting to track chapter effectiveness, knowing what to measure is just one part of the equation. The other is knowing how to collect, store and share that data, in addition to recognizing and tracking the data trends.

Provide guidelines rather than deadlines

Create a robust resource portal accessible 24/7

How many deadlines do your component leaders miss? How many times do you get a request for the same document or a checklist from multiple (or repeat) volunteers? How’s your “trust meter” with your component volunteers? The last question is included because too often the answer to the first two questions creates a staff-volunteer relationship that is transactional. It doesn’t build trust. What if you could step out of the transactional role – out of the nagging role – and move into a coaching role?  What if you double or triple your support in answering “where is” and “how to” questions by empowering volunteers to jump in and support each other? Follow these links to explore how to create a portal that delivers.

Coach volunteer leaders rather than lecture

Run a year-round training strategy tapping the power of virtual training

Member volunteers bring a passion to their work. What they don’t always have is optimal leadership and team skills to unleash that passion. What if the board member came to the first meeting with a clear understanding of the mission able to articulate the vision and knowing the financial dynamics? What if a committee chair understood effective meeting management and how to manage peer-volunteers? The solution is accessible orientation and training which is available year-round. Follow these links to explore how to shift to the coach role.
