"This book is a most important contribution for both new and experienced directors, addressing contemporary corporate governance. The 14 practical questions represent the most vital issues that boards need to proactively address and are particularly crucial now as boards deal with the aftermath of the global financial tsunami." —Thomas J. Neff, chairman, U.S., Spencer Stuart "If Corporate America's board members had answered these questions, the crisis of '08 would have been avoided. The book is that powerful. It should be required reading in every boardroom, executive suite, and business school on the planet. This book with its singular wisdom could change the face of corporate governance—with huge dividends to shareholders and society." —Ralph Whitworth, principal, Relational Investors LLC "Ram Charan always seems to get it right.

Nonprofit leadership is messy Nonprofits leaders are optimistic by nature. They believe with time, energy, smarts, strategy and sheer will, they can change the world. But as staff or board leader, you know nonprofits present unique challenges. Too many cooks, not enough money, an abundance of passion. It’s enough to make you feel overwhelmed and alone. The people you help need you to be successful. But there are so many obstacles: a micromanaging board that doesn’t understand its true role; insufficient fundraising and donors who make unreasonable demands; unclear and inconsistent messaging and marketing; a leader who’s a star in her sector but a difficult boss... And yet, many nonprofits do thrive. Joan Garry’s Guide to Nonprofit Leadership will show you how to do just that. Funny, honest, intensely actionable, and based on her decades of experience, this is the book Joan Garry wishes she had when she led GLAAD out of a financial crisis in 1997. Joan will teach you how to: Build a powerhouse board Create an impressive and sustainable fundraising program Become seen as a ‘workplace of choice’ Be a compelling public face of your nonprofit This book will renew your passion for your mission and organization, and help you make a bigger difference in the world.

It ranks right up there with public speaking. Nearly all of us fear it. And yet it's critical to our success. Asking for money. It makes even the stout-hearted quiver. But now comes a book, Asking: A 59-Minute Guide to Everything Board Members, Staff and Volunteers Must Know to Secure the Gift. And short of a medical elixir, it's the next best thing for emboldening you, your board members and volunteers to ask with skill, finesse -- and powerful results. Jerold Panas, who as a staff person, board member and volunteer has secured gifts ranging from $50 to $50 million, understands the art of asking perhaps better than anyone in America. He has harnessed all of his knowledge and experience and produced what many are already calling a landmark book. What Asking convincingly shows -- and one reason staff will applaud the book and board members will devour it -- is that it doesn't take stellar communication skills to be an effective asker. Nearly everyone, regardless of their persuasive ability, can become an effective fundraiser if they follow Jerold Panas' step-by-step guidelines.

Praise for Nonprofit Consulting Essentials "The relationship between consulting and nonprofits has never been more important. Both theoretically sophisticated and practically useful, Cagney's research will be of great use to anyone interested in improving nonprofit institutions, deriving the greatest benefit from consultants, and understanding what really goes on inside large organizations." —Christopher McKenna, MBA program director and reader in business history and strategy, Said Business School, University of Oxford; and fellow, Brasenose College, Oxford, United Kingdom "Everyone seems to have a different idea of what it means to consult or be a consultant, especially in the charitable sector. Finally, we have a book, Nonprofit Consulting Essentials, that really delves into the assumptions and truths and the roles and responsibilities of consultants." —Paulette V. Maehara, president and CEO, Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) International, Arlington, Virginia "This really is an essential guide to nonprofit consulting and capacity building in the current climate of dramatic and discontinuous change. Whether you are just entering the sector or looking to refresh your skills, this book is a must-read." —Brian Fraser, lead provocateur, Jazzthink, Vancouver, Canada "This book will be an important resource for nonprofit professionals who wish to become consultants and for those consultants who want to improve their craft." —Patrick M. Rooney, executive director, The Center on Philanthropy, Indiana University, Indianapolis, Indiana "If you're a consultant in the nonprofit sector, or if you retain a consultant—if you're even thinking about hiring a consultant—read Nonprofit Consulting Essentials. There's a lot of practical value packed into the pages of this groundbreaking book." —Mal Warwick, founder and chairman, Mal Warwick Associates, Berkeley, California; and author, How to Write Successful Fundraising Letters "I have been in the YMCA movement for 35 years and have used consultants for technology to financial development to coaching and more, but I have never truly understood the role and benefits of using consultants for nonprofits until I read this book." —Gregory O'Brien, president and CEO emeritus, Valley of the Sun YMCA, Phoenix, Arizona
