Here's an important addition to your advocacy toolbox. This Training Designs presents training resources to help you describe and demonstrate the power of volunteer engagement to peers and senior managers through the lens of “transformational leadership.” Newly-appointed Training Designs editor Erin R. Spink explains the theory of transformational leadership and the many commonalities it shares with volunteer engagement as a means to bring about significant change in both followers and the organization.

With the ideas and tools in this article, your presentations and training sessions can include the leadership language that is more familiar to senior management – a step that may open their eyes to what volunteer engagement can do for an organization and reinforce the value of your role and what you do.
