Description
"Nanus and Dobbs have written a seminal book about a long-neglectedand key area of American life: the leadership ofnot-for-profits.... It's a first and should be read by all thoseconcerned about not-for-profits: board members most especially, butvolunteers, executives, benefactors, and academics as well." --Warren Bennis, University Professor, Marshall School of Business,University of Southern California, and coauthor of OrganizingGenius "These authors have made a remarkable contribution to social sectornonprofit leadership. It's a valuable resource by two greatauthorities on a critical need." --Frances Hesselbein, chairman of the board, The Peter F. DruckerFoundation for Nonprofit Management "If there's one thing that today's nonprofit sector needs more thananything else, it's leadership.... Burt Nanus and Stephen Dobbsillustrate the qualities that do 'make a difference' by tellingreal-life stories of exceptional nonprofit leaders--few of themhousehold names--and examining the lessons these men and womenlearned the hard way." --Dorothy S. Ridings, president and CEO, Council onFoundations There are many books on leadership, but few that focus specificallyon the unique role of nonprofit executives. For the CEOs anddirectors of more than one million U.S. social sectororganizations--as well as those who aspire to thesepositions--best-selling author Burt Nanus and colleague Stephen M.Dobbs have written the first comprehensive and authoritative bookon nonprofit leadership. The authors show how leaders build successful nonprofitorganizations by developing key relationships to improve theirperformance and move them toward a greater good--such as muchhigher levels of service to their clients and community. Theydescribe the six key roles that effective leaders mustplay--Visionary, Strategist, Change Agent, Coach, Politician, andFundraiser--and present inspiring examples of how their actions inthese roles have been crucial to the success of large and smallnonprofits flourishing across the nation. Leaders Who Make aDifference offers proven lessons on strategy, team building,fundraising, advocacy, board relations, and much more. Grounded inreal-world practice, the book champions the potential of allnonprofit leaders to greatly improve the performance of theirorganizations and realize their visions of better communities.
