Ten Tips for Getting Things Done with Volunteers

Blog: Collaborative Planning & Social Business

Some say it is like herding cats, but sometimes it is more like channeling the torrent, it always depends on the group, but there are several key activities that you should be doing in order to make your volunteer group as successful as possible.

Every volunteer organization is different, so it is up to you as the organizer to fit the people into positions as best you can. You don’t have the luxury of simply hiring the talent you want, but with careful organization you may find you have all the talent you need. Most of all, volunteer organizations benefit from transparency. Motivated volunteers like to be part of an organization that is getting things done, so the more they see being completed, the more they want to contribute. Show them they are successful, and everybody wins.
