Anyone who works in a nonprofit is familiar with the five problem elephants presented in this book. The paradox, of course, is that no one wants to talk about them. Yet ignoring these elephants keep organizations from becoming great instead of good. This book gives readers a description of each disruptive pachyderm, as well as Live Lessons-real situations from actual nonprofits-that show the effect these elephants have on nonprofits on a day-to-day basis. Tools and techniques to tame these pesky pachyderms are also explored.
