Here at UniCrew we are always asking questions about leadership. What is it, how can we do it better, what does it mean for our community?
One of our favourite talks on the subject comes from Simon Sinek, and is especially relevant in a volunteering context. We are constantly encountering people who through their passion and drive for their work, inspire others to step up and take part.
We love that in particular, this talk speaks on why it is so important for leaders to find their ‘WHY’, their reason for doing what they do. The motivation and drive behind your work is just as important as the work itself.
The impact of thinking about your leadership style and how you work as a leader is huge, as it can enable you to reach more people, spread your ideas further and ultimately be a better member of any community, especially a volunteering community.
