Respond, Don’t React: How This Simple Change Can Make all the Difference!

Presented by: Molly Marsh

For association planners, it seems like the constructive criticism never stops. “Have you thought about it…?” “Why can’t we just…?” “When I was President…” Whether it’s a Board member who assumes he/she could do the job better than you, a non-responsive committee chair or the committee member who has to comment on everything, sometimes it can feel like it’s your job just to be second-guessed. This presentation will reflect on many years of lessons learned in working with volunteer planning committees, looking at how the simple shift from an immediate reaction to a thoughtful response can make all the difference in your sanity getting the many volunteers, stakeholders, and leaders all on the same page about the outcomes for your event.

Learner Outcomes:

1. Identify the difference between a reaction and a response to external stimuli.

2. Reflect on previous experiences with difficult personalities and how a response vs. a reaction may lead to different results.

3. Articulate strategies to respond more positively to difficult people so that their energy and passion can be used effectively.
