A good supervisor creates a safe environment for volunteers to learn and develop, to grow with their role in knowledge, motivation, and autonomy. Effective supervision is a mix of supporting growth, providing appropriate praise, creating a culture of excellence and accountability, and reinforcing relationships with all team members. Join us for this session exploring how your management can lead to their success.
