Description - Nonprofit Nonsense & Common Sense by Marshall McNott

Nonprofit Nonsense and Common Sense is about in the trenches experiences that may bring some A-haa moments or And I thought I was the only one epiphanies to those now in the nonprofit field (including church work). The book offers composites of some of the nonsense carried on in nonprofit organizations but then offers alternatives to correcting the nonsense with some common sense alternatives. The author avoids politically correctness, steps on some sensitive toes and confronts some sacred cows. But it's done with a sense of honesty and a desire for understanding and healing, with more than a touch of humor.It faces off the too common tensions in nonprofit organization staffs, between the CEO and the board, between the fundraisers and their donors and all the things that can (and frequently do) go wrong. It speaks to the common sense of humility vs. arrogance, the need to listen, and the need for conversational sensitivity. It may offend some ...but should offer healing to many.
