Skilled volunteering certainly is a hot topic lately, and there are new resources to prove it. Volunteer Match just announced a new feature on their volunteer website, the Listing Wizard, and the professional networking website LinkedIn just added a “Volunteer Experience & Causes” section. Is your program ready to take advantage of the wealth of skills available in your community?
As promised in a recent post I’m sharing more thoughts on nonprofit leadership. Today’s post is based on my reading of Doing More with More: Putting Shared Leadership Into Practice, a Nonprofit Quarterly article. It offers a nice overview of the key ingredients needed to bring about collaborative leadership that in turn results in enhanced nonprofit capacity.
I recently read Neuromarketing: Understanding the Buy Buttons in Your Customer's Brain by Patrick Renvoisé & Christophe Morin, an engrossing look at how human beings are hard wired to behave in specific ways. The book includes smart info we can use to strengthen our volunteer recruitment efforts.
