January Lunch and Learn

Posted: January 21, 2015

 

Every nonprofit organization has them: the difficult volunteers.  The Past President of the Central Kentucky Association of Volunteer Administrators, Whitney Wilgus, tackled the topic during the regular quarterly installment of the Covington Business Council Nonprofit Lunch and Learn January 20 at the CBC offices.  Wilgus, who serves currently as Kentucky Nonprofit Network (KNN) Communication Coordinator, described eight different volunteer personality disorders, if you will:  the Pillar, the Emotional Vampire, the Loose Cannon, the Control Freak, Debbie Downer, the Misfit, the Leech and the Sniper.  She also discussed the myths concerning problem volunteers including ignorance will solve the problem and confrontation will make the situation worse.  She also discussed the importance of performance feedback, determining a strategy for attempting to salvage problem volunteers and specifics steps in firing them if the act can’t be avoided.  Lunch and Learns are held quarterly,  hosted by the Council in partnership with KNN.  If you have not received invites for these programs reach out to the CBC (admin@cbcky.com) and we’ll add you to the list.
