This session was recorded at NHPCO’s Volunteer Leadership Virtual Conference on August 1, 2012.

Volunteer leaders need many of the same leadership skills that executives must demonstrate: vision, strategic planning and direction, growing the depth and breadth of programs and services, aligning services with mission and values and developing the potential of others. This presentation will help you create a new vision and more central role for yourself and your volunteers. It will reframe your current experience and encourage you to capitalize on your strengths, using them to move you and your organization forward. It will challenge you to take your program to the next level, to assert the importance of the work you do and to garner recognition and support for the amazing work volunteers do under your leadership.


  • Discuss key leadership skills needed by volunteer leaders
  • Identify strategies to increase your leadership potential
  • Identify new opportunities for volunteer program impact
