10. Foster an Atmosphere of Thankfulness
You can never say “thank you” too much. People need to know they’re appreciated. That their efforts are noticed. That they matter.
Stop trying to guilt people into stepping up. That never works.
Want great volunteer leaders? Infuse everything you do with an atmosphere of thankfulness.
Even if you don’t have volunteer leaders right now, be grateful for the members you have. When they feel appreciated for what they do, they might decide to do more.
