Creating Caring and Capable Boards is for the millions of people who serve on nonprofit boards and for the executive staff who work with those boards. It offers readers a new and proven model of board leadership. Based on more than ten years of practical experience, this step-by-step process can help board members to refine their understanding of the organization, strengthen their commitment to mission and goals, and improve their ability to lead cohesively and effectively. Author Katherine Tyler Scott explores the historical context of board service, explains the duties of board trustees, and offers straightforward exercises to help trustees fulfill their unique roles. Much more than a guide, this book invites boards to renew their commitment to improving the social sector through caring and competent leadership.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creating Caring and Capable Boards: Reclaiming the Passion for Active Trusteeship (The Jossey-Bass Nonprofit and Public Management Series)?

Great Book for Executive Directors  Jun 11, 2001
WOW, This is a wonderful book that lays out how a non-profit board should work. Creating Caring & Capable Boards delivers a simple outline for preparing a board for leadership and evaluating an organization through out its lifetime. It has helped me (an executive director of a non-profit) objectify my board's behavior and develop a strategy for dealing with them. I plan to order 9 copies and send it to each member.
