LEADING A TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS
Leading a team involves understanding yourself
- Good leaders are life-long learners.
- Know your strengths and weaknesses.
- Put people around you who are good at the things you are not.
- Ask the question: “What’s it like to be on the other side of me”?
Investing in a team takes time
If you want to build a great team, be prepared to invest some time into it.
Investing in a team means valuing people over programmes. It is well-known that programmes don’t build disciples—people do. But often we spend a lot of time preparing our programmes and not so much preparing our people.
Be intentional about building a positive team culture and investing in people. Your volunteers are your greatest asset, be intentional about investing in them.
