We get so involved with the work that must be completed, we are often not aware of our leadership or management approach. Have you ever asked yourself ‘what type of leader am I and what is my leadership style’? How would your volunteers, clients, staff and vendors answer that question?
In this 1-day, interactive workshop, you will:
  • Define leadership versus management – leadership
  • Define the difference between effective and ineffective leadership
  • Discover how your leadership style contributes to your success.
  • Discover how to motivate, provide direction and implement plans.
  • Discover your leadership style
  • Implement your leadership style

This course is one of the curriculum courses for the Volunteer Management Certificate Program offered by Volunteer Management Institute.

Overview -The responsibility for volunteer management may be assigned to staff whose primary function lies elsewhere, for example: administrative assistance, fund development, human resources or event planning. Many organizations could not function without the generous contribution of their dedicated volunteers. Effective management of volunteers is a crucial element for the success of non-profit organizations. Participants who complete the certificate program will be provided with the knowledge, tools and networking opportunities to align their work with the strategic mission and values of their agency. This in turn strengthens capacity within the organization.

Curriculum - The Volunteer Management Certificate curriculum is based on current accepted core competencies and a body of knowledge which serves as a foundation for volunteer management. Participants will be given many opportunities for interactive learning and is an excellent opportunity to develop professional relationships that will support them following this rich learning experience.
