Volunteer management, volunteer recognition and volunteer recruitment goals.

Hi Everyone,

Here’s another quick idea for you in volunteer management on setting your goals. Sometimes re-assessing your goals can ensure your success in achieving these goals.

LET US CONSIDER WHAT IS YOUR GOAL IN MORE DEPTH

When travelling and conducting so many workshops on a wide range of different topics and I often ask people attending workshops on volunteering to define their volunteer recruitment goals.

Often people explain that their goal is something like this – “to recruit 3 people who can volunteer for 3 full days a week”. They are then also finding it very difficult to recruit these 3 people as volunteers.

REWORK THOSE GOALS

It is not easy for people to always have 3 days available to volunteer. So what if you re-work this goal? What is it you actually think about the goal in a different way? Get ready to open your mind with this goal. What if you change the goal to a number of hours? Then the goal becomes “to recruit enough people to do 24 hours of volunteer work a week”.

POSSIBILITIES OPEN UP FOR YOU

This now means we could consider people volunteering for different lengths of time. For instance, 1 person may do 1 day per week (8 hrs), and 4 people do a half day each per week (16 hrs). There could be a number of combinations. Yes it involves more volunteers but if you cannot reach your original goal consider how to rework that goal for success.

Volunteer management, volunteer recognition and volunteer recruitment ideas for you.

Here is another idea for everyone involved in volunteer management. Lots more great ideas to come for you in the blog posts, so make sure to read them all.

VITAL GOAL SETTING TIP

If you are setting goals to be achieved. Here is a vital goal setting idea for you and will increase goal achievement success. How you feel about and think about a goal is even more important than the goal itself.

Yes this is really true!

POSITIVE NOT NEGATIVE WORDING OF YOUR GOALS

To help with your focus to achieve your goals – always write them down as POSITIVE not negative goals. For example, a goal of ‘losing weight’ is re-framed to ‘eating well and exercising’. Another one is to re-frame from ‘not being at work late at night’ to ‘spending evenings with the children’.

CHECK OUT THOSE GOALS AGAIN

So check out your goals again and make sure they are framed in positive rather than negative language and this will make all the difference.
