The Happy Healthy Nonprofit Book: Upcoming Activities and Early Reviews

Happy Healthy Nonprofit

We are just weeks away from the launch of the Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Impact without Burnout, my third book, co-authored with Aliza Sherman.    Yesterday,  I was honored to deliver the ending keynote, “From Self-Care to We-Care” at the Stanford Nonprofit Management Institute.    The interactive keynote had 300 nonprofit leaders take and discuss the nonprofit burnout assessment and brainstorm self-care ideas to put into practice.  Here’s some of the takeaways shared on Twitter.

During the q/a, one participant said that she was looking forward to the book and wanted right now! Well, just a few more weeks.   Several participants mentioned that they would like to facilitate a process like this their staff as a starting point for developing self-care and we-care strategies.   Our biggest goal for the book was to raise the conversation about why the nonprofit work ethic is outdated and needs to change and provide some frameworks and tips for change.

When writing a book, the best part for me is developing instructional workshops and keynotes and I am excited to see how nonprofits put some of the ideas into practice.

Book Reviews

Nonprofit Blogger Marion Conway, known for her nonprofit book roundups and reviews, wrote this review after reading an early galley.

“This is a book that you will want to read and keep on your bookshelf to refer to over and over again.  It is a resource that all nonprofit leaders and Board leaders should read and take to heart.  It is destined to be a must have book for a long time to come.”


We were thrilled to see that the book climbing towards the top of the Amazon Nonprofit Book Best Seller list several weeks before the official publication date.  Yesterday it reached #9 on the top 100 nonprofit books on Amazon.

Thank you everyone who has pre-ordered a copy.
