Five Ways to Alienate Your Volunteers

Here are a few leader bytes NOT to do in no particular order:
5. Don't return their phone calls or emails.
4. Talk about them to other volunteers. Tell other volunteers how someone's made you upset or how they aren't following through.
3. Whenever you have a meeting, only focus on what needs to be improved.
2. Complain about how busy you are and how much you have on your plate.
1. Give them something to do that's outside their gifting.
