This lesson is about getting more parents to say YES to PTO leadership roles when you ask them.
Everything you do to create a strong volunteer mindset and make it easier for parents to volunteer, like the steps covered in Lessons 1-4, make it more likely a parent will say YES when you ask them to do specific job.
That’s because you’re creating a positive environment. Where parents know their help is needed and appreciated and the work is manageable and rewarding. THAT’S an environment where you’ll hear more YESes.
This section, on Positive Persuasion, will show you how to ask and what to say to get more YESes -- even when the environment is not perfect. Because let’s face it. There will always be room for improvement, and we can still do a lot of good for the kids.
