Does your organization support volunteers in different locations throughout the city or region? Are you faced with the challenge of not always (or ever) being in close physical proximity to the people you supervise?
Some supervisors of volunteers, by virtue of organizational structure, are almost never in the same physical location as the individuals and teams they supervise. In such situations, unique supervisory problems tend to occur, such as people identifying more with the client than the organization, people pursuing their own agendas, and people operating in ignorance of decisions due to lack of communication. In this workshop participants learn techniques in long-distance communication, commitment-building, and control strategies, to solve these and other problems.
Come learn new strategies, connect with your peers, and engage in interactive professional development!
