The Can Do Workplace: A Strengths Based Model for Nonprofits by Cathi Coridan About The Book:
The Can Do Workplace is a nonprofit where
CAN = what is possible
Meets DO = the action to make it real
It is a book designed for nonprofit leaders and manager who want:
* your nonprofit and the people you serve to be more successful
* to reduce workplace stress and increase productivity
* the outcomes of your programs and services to make real, meaningful and lasting impact for your clients, your employees and your community
* to build and maintain “connected relationships” that bring hope and success
The Can Do Workplace combines concepts and practices with how-to applications to help employees at all levels of an organization work toward success with excellence. It focuses on possibilities and demonstrates the importance of building on a foundation of gratitude and mission. The four “case stories” illustrate the work and feature the voices of the people from four diverse, exemplary Can Do nonprofits from around the world. The chapter on “Lessons Learned” reminds us of our need to build and maintain a culture of inquiry at all levels of the organization.
The Can Do Workplace: A Strengths-Based Model for Nonprofits is a great resource for nonprofit managers and leaders, Board members and Execs. There is a starting point for everyone to build connected relationships that can, literally, change the world for the people served by, and serving in, the nonprofit sector.
