Greater Sustainability, Less Fuzzy Thinking

“For years, I taught workshops on time management and burnout,” writes one contributor to Nonprofit Online News. “It dismayed me how organizations and individuals pathologize some very natural, human responses to unhealthy working conditions. Staff would be sent to my workshop to be ‘fixed,’ and while many would return with healthier habits, some would make the bold decision that they needed a better place to work…I always appreciated a healthy tension between those two outcomes. One of the books that helped me work with organizations that were prepared to take a more systemic approach was Katrina Shield’s In the Tiger’s Mouth: An Empowerment Guide for Social Action. With very little wasted space or fuzzy thinking, this is a book that will help any organization with sustainability.”
