7 Reasons Why Volunteers Burnout Because Of Me

It’s the end of the service and one of your volunteers asked if they can speak with you in private. Your heart sinks. You know what is coming. You listen as the volunteer says,

“I’m going to have to stop serving. My life is just too busy right now and I can no longer commit to this. I’m sure you’ll find someone else to take my place.”

Sound familiar? I’ve experienced this many times over the years. Though the volunteer didn’t actually use the words “burned out,” that is what they were feeling. And if there was any finger pointing to be done, it should have been pointed at me. They burned out because of poor leadership on my part.
