Heifetz, director, Leadership Education Project, Harvard University "This book will aid organizations in probing beneath the surface of board work to build leadership based on the convergence of personal and organizational values." --Eugene R. Tempel, executive director, Indiana University Center on Philanthropy "A valuable, practical book filled with wisdom that demonstrates how the vision, depth education, and foresight of the board as well as its commitment to the organization's mission are critical to success." --Larraine Matusak, senior leadership scholar, Burns Academy of Leadership, University of Maryland, and president, LarCon Associates 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.
