Get On Board! Entraining Volunteers

Category:Infosec Communicator,Leadchange,Leadership,Lessons Learned,Presentations,STC,STC Rochester,Summit Tags : 

I’m delivering the presentation below as part of a progression at Summit 2013 Leadership Day in Atlanta. Summit Leadership Day provides STC community leaders with the knowledge and guidance they need to lead successful communities, both geographic chapters and SIGs.

Volunteers are the heart of the community. They enable us to offer meaningful services to our members. However, getting volunteers can be challenging. Issuing a cattle call doesn’t usually lead to good results. Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y all have different priorities that you must consider when recruiting them.

Personally, I’ve found volunteering in leadership in my local chapter (Rochester) to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career. Volunteering has stretched me and equipped me as a better leader. I don’t have a magic formula. However, STC Rochester fills 8-10 council positions each year. That’s more than 10% of the community engaged in leadership.

This presentation provides strategies and tactics for recruiting and retaining volunteers.

A review of Petrilli, The Introvert’s Guide to Success in Business and Leadership

Category:Infosec Communicator,Introverted Leadership,introverts,Leadchange,Leadership,STC,STC Rochester,techcomm Tags : 

Reading this book as an introverted leader, I’m encouraged to see that Lisa recommends and extends many of the same techniques I’ve found essential. I found that meeting individually with members of my admin council was a key enabler in a successful year. I also appreciated knowing that an introvert can rise to C level leadership.

Lisa refers to not faking it. However, I viewed my leadership  responsibility as a role that had duties and expectations to fulfil. I observed successful leaders and tried to emulate their ability to reach out to others to welcome them and affirm them.

I think the book is best suited for introverts who have been newly thrust into leadership. The section for extraverted leaders on how to lead introverts was also useful.
