The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout

The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout will take on the outdated work ethic that plagues many nonprofits: “The Scarcity Mindset” of working long hours with few resources without investing in an organizational strategy for self-care.

This book is a manifesto for mindset change in our sector, raising the conversations about the importance of self-care. The book is also a practical toolkit filled with concrete examples, ideas and practices for both individuals and organizations working on social change issues to achieve impact without burnout.

As social media has become more widely adopted in the nonprofit workplace, our personal lives, and our society at large, hyperconnectivity is contributing to the feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed that is so common too many who work in the nonprofit sector. This book takes off where The Networked Nonprofit and Measuring the Networked Nonprofit left off -- helping individuals and the nonprofit organizations they work for  how to live and work with online networks in more sustainable ways.

The topics include:

Understanding the pillars of self-care for individuals: sleep, nutrition, exercise
Stress reduction techniques
Managing technology and information overload
Understanding and practicing different ways to work that replenish individual energy
Effective team work habits and communication
Productive and effective meetings
Developing staff wellness plans as part of organizational strategy
Mindful Leadership
Ways to encourage individual and group reflection and learning
