Every once in a while, we like to highlight what some of the amazing people in our Team Buzz Builder community are accomplishing. This week, we turn the spotlight on member Rebecca Henderson and her recently published book, Serving with Significance: A Guide for Leadership Level Community Influencers. Published in June of this year, this five-star book is already making headlines. In fact, it was just added to the required reading list for a public policy class at UNC-Chapel Hill!
Meet the Author
Rebecca Henderson has a B.S. in business administration and an M.S. in community leadership. The academic experience, combined with more than three decades of volunteer leadership experience on more than two dozen boards of directors, ranging in scope from local to international, gives her significant expertise in nonprofit leadership. She holds the Thanks Badge, Girl Scouting’s highest honor, served a two-year term on the board of directors of the Association of Junior Leagues International, and was named one of Milligan College’s Leaders in Christian Service in 2015. She currently serves as a consultant at Strategic Priorities Consulting, and loves strategic planning, organizational development, and geeky things like bylaws and parliamentary procedure.
Discover ‘Serving with Significance’
“Anyone can become a positive and effective leader; the only requirement is the desire to serve others.”
“Many books on volunteerism and leadership are more theory than practice. Serving with Significance is full of easy-to-follow tips that can be implemented immediately by its readers. Although some people are lucky enough to be born leaders, leadership is a skill that can be learned. Like most skills, the more it is practiced, the better one gets.
The concept of volunteerism at its very roots is changing the community and the world in which we live. Serving with Significance is designed for every type of group, from formal to informal, local to international, prayer group to professional group, social to humanitarian, and especially membership-based organizations. While the primary audience is that of the nonprofit sector, nearly all of the tips that follow are equally applicable in a corporate setting of any size.
Leading the charge toward making a positive difference in the world is one of the few opportunities that every person can take advantage of at any point in his or her life. Serving with Significance is the inspirational and motivational guide that will show you how to achieve this life-changing goal in very relevant and measurable ways.”
