THE VOLUNTEER LEADER AS CHANGE AGENT

 

Author: Mary Kay Hood
ISBN 0-9723448-1-0
Available at Volunteer Today Bookstore

Are you offering suggestions for new programs or procedures at your organization or agency? Do you relish putting into practice new ideas? If someone at work has a “new” idea does he/she seek you out?  Answer yes to all those questions and you are likely already a change agent. 

It can seem intimidating to recommend changes or lead a new initiative when you are “just the manager of volunteers” or “just a support staff person.” Overstepping one’s bounds is uncomfortable.

Mary Kay Hood tackles what it takes to be a change agent in your organization.  It does not matter your “level” within the structure.  Change occurs through all organizational level—nonprofits, government, grassroots, or business. 

This handy book takes you through self discovery about your own skills, addresses the issue of leadership, defines issues around change, and offers advice on working with voluntary teams.  With solid research backing she quickly, in bullet points, provides models, statistics, and theories. All this is in easy to read book of less 100 pages.
