If we search for answers to our questions immediately in our personal lives, why are we forced to seek for professional work answers by signing up for a two-day training a month from now? If we have a work-related problem we need to solve now, why do we have to sit through an hour-long webinar or self-paced course to try find something that will address our unique issue? In this session, we’ll discuss these questions and more, including what we can do differently to provide learning experiences that our learners want and that actually change behavior.

In this webinar we'll discuss strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers.
