Book Review--The New Breed by Jonathan & Thomas McKee
As someone who NEEDS volunteers to make my job & work situation healthier it was a fun read. There was a lot of content that has been touched on in recent blogs & conferences I've been to but it was a great reminder. The book touches on how digital our world is, utilizing volunteers effectively with their life experiences, addressing boundaries & expectations with volunteers and it also has a good illustration on how to hand-off the ball of responsibility to volunteers & not trying to take the ball back when things don't go your way.
