Joan Garry is an expert on nonprofit leadership. She’ll be with us in person on October 3 to share her spot-on commentary about how to be an effective nonprofit leader. But, if you’d like to soak up some of her wisdom right now, why not pick up her book at amazon.com?
Joan readily admits that leading nonprofits is not easy. It can messy and frustrating. But her humor, informal style, and fresh insights can restore your passion for your mission and get you moving in a positive direction. [In fact Joan says she wishes she had access to this book when she took on her first nonprofit assignment.]
Joan is the former executive director of GLADD, one of the largest gay rights organizations in the country. She now works with nonprofit leaders, assisting with crisis management, executive coaching and the building of strong management teams. She also teaches nonprofit media strategy as a professor at the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Pennsylvania, and is a blogger for The Huffington Post.
