A positive attitude to celebrate their individual accomplishments and successes, as well as empathy for life's difficulties, will result in trust and respect from those you support in the field.Market Intelligence: Understand your market. Know there is competition for volunteers' time (sports programs, BSA, community Boards, and other ministries). Expand volunteers' understanding of their potential "circles of influence", and where to network and locate new volunteer candidates.Talent Assessment: Work with your Regional Team Leader to understand the positions for which you are recruiting, skills required for each volunteer role, and expectations they will have for the volunteer candidates.Networker: Relationship building-with both existing Area leaders and candidates for volunteer positions-is extremely important. It is beneficial to participate in religious groups, civic clubs, and professional associations. Must be well- versed and comfortable with in-person and phone networking, as well as digital and virtual networking (including online meetings, video chats, social media and other messaging platforms and technologies).The Art of Selling: The RFSE needs to "sell" the volunteer candidates on the position they are being asked to fill. Be able to show the candidate "what's in it for him" (the importance of fulfilling his God-given mission and purpose).Sourcing: Finding talent will require utilization of a variety of channels. This might include posting on social media or speaking to church associations, civic clubs, or retiree groups. Sourcing will lead to more personalized messages, phone calls, and recruiting appointments. Which leads to...Follow-up: Keeping detailed records of your contacts will keep you organized and on top of the task at hand. Timely and regular "re-connects" can only happen if you schedule them.Marketing: Be comfortable on multiple social media channels including Twitter, Facebook, etc. Connecting regularly with volunteers, using the method they prefer, is the best way to build trust and expand your network.Communication: Professionalism is essential in both offline and online activities, including social media, email, phone, and in-person communication.Flexibility/Resilience: Be flexible to meet according to the volunteer candidate's availability. Give plenty of options for the candidate. Don't accept "no" for an answer when talking to the best candidate prospect! But resilience develops through negative experiences mixed with the commitment to continuously learn-every rejection is a growth opportunity.
