Go Beyond "Business As Usual" with Your Nonprofit "At last--the 'real truth' about nonprofit management! In Exposing the Elephants, Wilcox reveals the 'pesky pachyderms' that block our way to full effectiveness. How often have we grumbled that 'just because you're a [insert profession here], it doesn't mean you know how to run a nonprofit'? With clarity, passion, and sly humor, Wilcox validates that perspective and many others--but doesn't let us get away with just accepting the presence of the elephant in the room. Wilcox summarizes complex issues using recognizable examples and then offers sensible strategies for resolving them. Ultimately, she gives us permission to do the right thing(s). I love this book--and I can't wait to start implementing the 'elephant solutions'! " --Nancy Perkin Beaumont, CAE, Executive Director, Society of American Archivists "Before I finished reading Exposing the Elephants, I met with my key staff to talk about what we must change. I also shared what I learned from reading the book with a friend who sits on several different types of boards. Wilcox says it like it is--and it needs to be said--in every nonprofit organization." --Julie Donovan, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity, Lake County, Illinois "A remarkably candid, fresh, and witty analysis of the challenges inherent in managing nonprofits. Insightful and pragmatic solutions to overcoming the 'white elephants' so prevalent in the nonprofit culture. A 'must read' for every nonprofit CEO and board member." --Dick Yingst, President & CEO, Financial Managers Society, Chicago, Illinois "Pam Wilcox is willing to say the things that nonprofit professionals often do not wish to hear. She reveals through clear language and flowing style the significant barriers that nonprofits face and need to remove for not just success but also excellence. Unlike many authors who point out what is wrong with nonprofits, Wilcox shows us the way to tackle our most intractable issues and move to excellence. This book should be read by any and everyone involved in the nonprofit sector." --Katrina S. Rogers, PhD, Associate Dean, Research and Practice Director, Center for Innovation in the Nonprofit Sector, Fielding Graduate University
Praise for Fired-Up Fundraising Turn Board Passion into Action "Fired-Up Fundraising is honest, realistic, practical, and inspiring. It transforms the whole concept of fundraising from obligation and drudgery into passion and fun. Every CEO, development director, development consultant, and board chair needs to have and use this book." -Charles F. (Chic) Dambach President and CEO, Alliance for Peacebuilding Former Senior Consultant, BoardSource "A breakthrough! Fired-Up Fundraising takes the mystery out of engaging your board in the ongoing work of fundraising. In this well-organized little book, Gail Perry lays out a commonsense, four-step process that will fire up your board and help you meet your fundraising goals, year after year." -Mal Warwick author of How to Write Successful Fundraising Letters "Fired-Up Fundraising: Turn Board Passion into Action is by far the best book I have ever read on how to involve board members in the entire process of fundraising, from identifying prospects, cultivating them, and finally making 'the ask.' Just as important, it is an invaluable guide on how to select, enlist, train and especially inspire board members so they take ownership of their institutions. Every nonprofit CEO and development officer should read this book." -Robert L. Gale President Emeritus, Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges and founder of BoardSource (formerly known as the National Center for Nonprofit Boards) "This is the book for which EVERY nonprofit chief executive has been yearning since time immemorial. Every nonprofit needs money to survive and thrive, and every nonprofit has a board of trustees to help raise it, but few nonprofits come anywhere near using their boards to maximum benefit. Fired-Up Fundraising, a reader-friendly, realistic, and practical playbook written by a richly experienced, highly literate fundraiser turned consultant, takes readers by the hand and leads them step-by-step through eminently doable ways of inspiring the greatest possible engagement of-and return from-their trustees. It will instantly become the gold-standard guide for building successful boards." -Joel Fleishman Professor of Law and Public Policy and Director, The Foundation Research Program, Duke University

Das Meiste, was Rich O'Connor als CEO der Beratungsfirma Telegraph Partners tat, hatte zumindest etwas mit einem der 4 Prinzipien zu tun, die auf seinem ber?hmt-ber?chtigten "gelben Zettel" vermerkt waren. Manche seiner Manager witzelten schon, dass er geradezu besessen von diesen Prinzipien war. Interessanterweise wusste nur eine Handvoll Menschen wirklich, was genau auf diesem Zettel stand und so entwickelten sich diese Prinzipien zu einer Art Mysterium. F?r Rich war das okay, da er sowieso fand, dass niemand au?er ihm diese 4 Prinzipien f?r seinen Erfolg und den Erfolg der Firma kennen sollte. Was er deshalb niemals voraussehen konnte, war dass der gelbe Zettel f?r einen seiner Mitarbeiter die Grundlage f?r den Plan zur Vernichtung von Telegraph Partners werden w?rde ... Auch in seinem Buch "Die vier Prinzipien einer au?ergew?hnlichen F?hrungskraft" liefert Patrick Lencioni eine spannende Geschichte zum Thema F?hrung. Dabei fokussiert sich Lencioni auf die entscheidende Rolle der F?hrungskraft beim Aufbau einer gesunden und reibungslos funktionierenden Organisation. Wie wichtig dies ist, wird von vielen Entscheidungstr?gern leider oft ?bersehen. Patrick Lencioni identifiziert 4 Prinzipien, die Organisationen in dem komplexen Prozess hin zu einer gesunden unternehmerischen Kultur begleiten sollten: 1. Ein zusammenhaltendes F?hrungsteam aufbauen und bewahren 2. F?r organisatorische Klarheit sorgen 3. Organisatorische Klarheit ?berkommunizieren 4. Organisatorische Klarheit mithilfe der Personalsysteme verst?rken Eine mitrei?ende Fabel mit einer starken und denkw?rdigen Botschaft f?r alle, die eine au?ergew?hnliche F?hrungskraft werden wollen!
