"In each chapter, you will find honesty, wit, compassion, and actions you can put into motion ASAP to improve your ability to share your leadership effectively. Garry offers a recipe for a real partnership between an executive director and a board chair. She draws on her own staff and board experience and her work with hundreds of clients to share what it takes to be a first class fundraiser and public speaker. She will also offer practical advice on managing crises, graceful exits (those two not always connected) and organizational transition. Throughout, Garry's belief in the power of storytelling as core to nonprofit success shines through. In this book, Garry establishes her role as your biggest champion, your fiercest advocate and a coach offering authentic, practical and actionable advice to enable you to find the joy in the messiness of the nonprofit sector. Joan is planning an update of approx. 30% new content. This will be achieved in the form of a new introduction in which she addresses some of the changes in the NP landscape in the last 2-3 years and her first-hand experience dealing with those changes for and with her clients. She will also be including 2 new chapters; one on the unique power that smaller nonprofits possess in today's world of social-media born social movements; the second detailing the struggles that these smaller nonprofits often face, and how she helps them to overcome those struggles"--
