UNIQUE! This book is certainly unique among books on consulting and leading in nonprofits! For example, there are already many useful consulting books about how to market a consulting business - but marketing does you no good if you have no specialty or expertise to market to potential clients! One of the most prized services is to guide clients' organizations to improve their performance. This book guides you to develop that specialty!
Also, there are already many useful books that explore numerous abstract philosophies, broad paradigms and complex theories on organizational change and leadership - but to remain successful as a consultant and leader in nonprofits, you must be able to do more than think and talk about change - you must be able to actively guide change. This book guides you to develop that expertise!
ALL-IN-ONE! This easy-to-reference, 520-page, all-in-one resource includes descriptions of the most common issues that occur in nonprofits and how to address each issue. The book also addresses many of the problems with traditional approaches to consulting and leading! Thus, this book is extremely useful, not only to external consultants, but also to leaders and managers - change agents working together "in the trenches" to successfully guide change in their nonprofits.
TOOLS! This book provides time-tested, straightforward and highly integrated models, tools and techniques for consultants and leaders to successfully improve nonprofit performance. The book combines highly practical information from the fields of Organization Development and consulting, systems thinking and proven principles for change. Guidelines are organized in a step-by-step, numbered sequence that readers can easily reference. The result is a proven, time-tested roadmap for consultants and leaders to enhance performance, change and learning in nonprofits. Includes forms that can be downloaded from the Web, too.
