Theory informs practice. Practice informs theory. You need both. The best how-to books out there combine them. A book that is all concepts and theory, makes it hard to apply the information in the real world. But, if the book is just a collection of disconnected tips, then you run the risk of implementing with out strategy. This book combines the two.
Nonprofit Management 101: A Complete and Practical Guide for Leaders and Professionals features practical, easy to implement tips and takeaways from 50 leading experts – Ami Dar, Paul Hawken, and Holly Ross, among them. I contributed a chapter to this book and what I really loved was my editor, Darian Heyman’s formula. Start with a framework to help structure thinking around the topic, but share your best wisdom, tips and resources.
NTEN is hosting a webinar with Darian to discuss the book and share some of the wisdom. If you are looking for a terrific nonprofit manual that covers all aspects of running a nonprofit and lots of practical advice, go order your copy here.
