The Hesitant Volunteer

The hesitant volunteer isn’t enthusiastic about either the task or the idea of helping. That hesitation should not be judged as negative because they usually end up helping with a non-preferred task and in a way that takes more resolve than the volunteer that enjoys what they are helping with. When someone is hesitant, they may have a good reason. Perhaps they want to help but are concerned about their own bandwidth. They might not be confident in their ability to actually help. By accepting their help, you may help them discover a new ability or capacity.
