As a champion for nonprofit leaders hell-bent on maximizing the impact of the nonprofit sector, Joan produced this second edition of Joan Garry's Guide to Nonprofit Leadership during COVID lockdown. She knew that board and staff leaders would need a guide come January 2021 to navigate a world where old rules no longer apply and a world that needs them now more than ever.

A very different time demanded a very different book. Certainly not different in style, Joan's new book is funny, inspiring, and filled with practical advice. Her voice is accessible, and you'll feel you are getting a pep talk from your biggest fan.

Drawing on her own experiences as a nonprofit ED, a board leader, a volunteer, and a donor, Joan shares her stories and introduces you to a host of new characters she has met since 2017. Board and staff leaders will see themselves in these folks - recognizing the mistakes and celebrating the successes.

In this new audiobook, Joan will help you realize that "nonprofits are messy" - too many cooks, too few resources, and an abundance of passion - and tells you the way to find joy and privilege in that "mess".
