Beth Kanter and I will be teaching two more webinars before the end of the year based on our new book The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout. Our book is different from typical nonprofit management books that address the specific knowledge and abilities required to do a nonprofit job.
There are plenty of books about nonprofit management, strategic planning, evaluation, financial matters, and all the hard skills for leading a nonprofit organization. But there aren’t any books out there for nonprofits that give credence to the softer skills that are the underpinning of every organization’s culture and that directly affect staff members’ focus and energy levels critical to achieving missions.
The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout provides a practical roadmap for getting better results from mission-based, social change work by paying closer attention to individual and organizational wellbeing. We love speaking about the topics contained in our book and sharing the stories of nonprofit organizations that are getting it right like Crisis Text Line, Tech Soup, The United Way in Sioux Falls, Crisis Response Network, and Pathways to Education Canada.
Here are the webinar details!
