Whenever my dad and I teach a workshop about recruiting, retaining, training… and even firing today’s New Breed of volunteers (based on our book on the subject), we can guarantee we’ll get questions about ‘The Volunteer from Hell.’
You know the one I’m talking about. That one volunteer that you either inherited or recruited without thinking. We’ve all had them. I had one. She was terrifying.
The question most people ask is, “How do I get rid of this volunteer?” (Garlic and a cross?)
Allow me to ask a much better question: “How do I make sure I never recruit this volunteer?”
