  • You won't need anything for the course. Everything is provided. Well, you'll want to bring a hunger for excellence and a passion for learning but other than that, it's all good!

If you need volunteers to get your business, event or ministry moving, then you know the struggle it can be to find, organize and deploy your team. Usually, you end up doing most of the work.

This course will help you plan, find and implement your business, event or ministry in a way in which you work less and accomplish more through your all star volunteer team.

This course is perfect if,

  • You want to accomplish more with few resources.
  • You are working with volunteers or limited staff.
  • You are tired of doing everything yourself.
  • You are in charge of an event at your business, church, community or school.
  • You are looking for a way to reorganize your organization!

The course has 6 modules:

  1. The Importance of Team. Sure! You could do it all yourself by why not share the joy, excitement and thrill of working together to accomplish a goal.
  2. The Team Building Model Origin. Working in a team is an ancient idea. This module highlights one of the first recorded examples of team building in history!
  3. The First 4 Steps. Taking first steps is important. Steps 1-3 in building an All Star Volunteer Team helps you define the purpose of the team and how it will be structured.
  4. Step 6-7 and Expanding the Team. Once these seven steps are complete, then you can replicate the model to add more and more volunteers in a manageable way.
  5. Examples and Advice. Todd provides real life (and no-so-real-life) examples of the model and offers helpful advice as you begin building your team.
  6. An Exercise and an Invitation. This is the hands on part! During this module, you'll be given an assignment to work through using the 7 steps.
  7. BONUS #1. The course includes all materials plus a BONUS of a Powerpoint presentation for use to train your team!
  8. BONUS #2. A time to practice building a team right during the video sessions!
  9. BONUS #3. A free evaluation by the instructor!

This course can change your life!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is perfect for Business, Church and Non-Profit Leaders.
  • Whether you're 16 in charge of your High School project or 70 wanted to organize a reunion, this course is for you!
  • It is a MUST if you are in charge of organizing a business initiative, community even or even restructuring your entire organization!
