You’ve heard the story about the business executive showing visitors around his fancy suite of offices. When he was asked, “How many people work here?” he joked, “About half.”
If you are asked that question (at a volunteer based non-profit) hopefully this is what you say: ”Many more than we pay.”
Shar McBee had never received leadership training when she was suddenly put in charge of managing 500 volunteers. It was hard to get people to say “Yes.” Then a wise mentor taught her a secret that made it easy. Since then Shar has taught the secret to over 150,000 people in live audiences and to millions more on TV and radio appearances.
Shar is the author of two bestselling books: To Lead is to Serve which was quoted by the President of the United States on television, and Joy of Leadership which went to #7 on the Amazon Business Bestseller list.
NonProfits use Shar McBee’s leadership method to:
- Double Donations
- Triple Memberships
- Increase Volunteers 500%
Your job is not to get people to work. Your job is to make it possible for them to succeed.” – Shar McBee
Shar has been a motivational speaker for over 20 years. Her keynotes are geared to NonProfit conferences and Leadership for Women. Shar was a teacher at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, an entertainment reporter for CBS News in Hollywood, the assistant to a congressman, and a public relations agent for Phylicia Rashad when the Cosby Show was #1 on television.
As a volunteer, Shar built wells in a village in India, organized a concert for homeless children in Australia, raised money for an orphanage in China, and managed a voter registration drive in California. Her current interest is Explore & Explain, a program that gives unique, life-enriching opportunities to children in Maryland. Shar has served on ten Boards of Directors and is a creative fundraiser. Today Shar’s mission is to help good people become joyous leaders.
