They bring special skills, are trusted service delivery partners, and can extend your connections with diverse communities far beyond your agency’s doors. They are also key financial contributors, donating ten times more than non-volunteers. The value of volunteers can’t be ignored. But, effective volunteer engagement requires a focus on the right tactics at the right time to fully realize the power of volunteer time and talent. Join us and learn where to strategically invest effort throughout the volunteer lifecycle and make the most of community involvement.

The Behavior Styles model developed by Effectiveness Institute uses the metaphor of an iceberg to identify critical differences between behavior and personality. The entire iceberg represents our personality and the part above the waterline represents our behavior—which is a choice. What stops most people from making successful long-term change to their behavior is their mindset. To learn more about mindset and how it can be an accelerator of individual and team performance, George Myers, President of Effectiveness Institute, has invited a former institute partner and now go-to expert on mindset training, Hugh Blane, to join him in an interactive and high-impact webinar, "The Relationship 360: Using People Skills and the Leadership Mindset for Success."
