After taking an unexpected leap of faith from my executive role at a hedge fund to become the CEO and co-founder of NeighborShare, I find myself at the helm of a 25+ person, all-volunteer team working furiously to help as many families as possible through moments of critical need. While working with this dynamic and talented group has been one of the highlights of my new role, I've also found myself evolving my management approach to make sure I get the most out of the team: How do I keep these busy people with full-time jobs engaged and motivated about NeighborShare's mission when I don't even have the most obvious lever a manager usually has - money?

In this chat, I want you to walk away with practical techniques for keeping your team engaged and motivated, while still maintaining a culture with a high bar for quality and accountability.
