Difficult conversations with volunteers is one of our volunteer management things. We are all faced with having to “talk to” a volunteer at some point and we all hate the thought of “reprimanding” that volunteer. So, based on last year’s post, Difficult Conversations With Staff or Volunteers, I’ve condensed the points into a booklet you can download and keep for reference or perhaps you just want a reminder that you are not alone. If we, leaders of volunteers meet challenges head-on, we can turn them into opportunities. Oh, there is also a companion conversation worksheet to help you prepare. I’ve always found that the act of writing down your thoughts and affirmations helps to cement your preparation.
I’ve added ‘download volunteerplaintalk tools’ to the above menu.
Our challenges can become our greatest opportunities.
