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.
