Features and Benefits:
- Case studies of nonprofit leadership that affirm public-minded, mission-driven leaders and acknowledge their contributions
- Critical review of literature on leadership that encourages diversity in leadership models and approaches
- Chapters on leadership constructs such as fit, dynamics, readiness and flow that provide useful insights and methods to enable success

Leadership in Nonprofit Organizations is an ideal core text for graduate courses in nonprofit leadership. It could be used as a supplementary text in graduate courses in organization development and leadership, as well as courses in community development, human ecology, and human services. In addtion, practitioners, managers, and nonprofit organizational stakeholders will find it of great interest.
"They develop the concept of "good fit" between the leader and complex circumstances in which she or he must lead; they explain how leaders can increase the readiness for change in their organizations."
Very clearly written
I found this book useful as a supplementary text for my MBA students in their leadership module. It shows a good understanding of the workings in the third sector.
