“WE” is the most important thing your crew (volunteers) can hear from you, they need to hear that you are with them through thick and thin. It’s not “us” (the paid staff) and “them” (volunteers). There is no separation. It is all “WE”
I heard Jeanette Stevens talk about this at Orange and recently it has dawned on me how this effects your volunteers.
I have been at my job as the TD for a year and people have been really positive in the changes that I have brought (not bragging, just stating the facts, lol). I really haven’t done much, but two things I have done:
1. Making sure my crew is informed.
2. Making sure they know that I’m fighting for them.
What other ways can it become WE instead of ME?
