Volunteer Leadership Development
Our experience has been that forward-thinking associations recognize that their organizations' future rests on members' availability to step into volunteer leadership roles. Among all the various training programs, relatively few are based on volunteer leaders' unique needs and difficulties in the professional association context.
How We Help Our Client
Nourse Leadership offers a powerful volunteer leadership development program that helps fill your leadership pipeline with any volunteers that are ready, willing, and able to step up. This allows associations to thrive by providing high-impact career development support to attract, retain, and engage members.
Because of the experience of the unique challenges by volunteer leaders, the heart of a well-designed volunteer leadership development program is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence can be defined as the knowledge, ability, or skill to identify, assess, and maintain the emotions of oneself, of others, and groups. Participants complete an emotional intelligence self-assessment and use this information gathered to develop an expert development plan. Below are some of our webinar topics presented to our clients in the past:
