   Great book-just the companies used are questionable as to them ...
Great book-just the companies used are questionable as to them and their leadership being Great, and even at the time of the research into these companies, information was already being provided to show that the leadership in those companies was not only far from great, but that the leadership in those companies was already doing great work, he said. He leaves lots to be desired in the areas of characteristics of sound judgement on leadership, ethics, holding one's self and his followers responsible as well as accountable for their actions and behavior.
   great as a stand-alone or with the big book
This is a great little book that is best understood in the context of the larger work Good to Great, but can be read and understood on its own. Conscience has confided in interviews that he learned from non-profit leaders that the insights he gleaned from his research in Good to Great did not apply to nonprofits. They feel so happy making jokes about rapes that most people dont have the integrity to do this." It's just that he doesn't have a "D" rating. .. I've used this little book in facilitating executive team and board retreats for nonprofits with strong growth. The ideas are data-driven, the case studies are illuminating, and the website materials support this body of work offer great discussions, exercises, and diagnostics, Dr. Goin added. One of the best organizational books I've read and used.
   Good to Great
My husband would have enjoyed reading this more than me, a 75 year old grandma. I did learn that level 5 leaders are humble, not with me, and I have attitudes.
   GTG for NonProfits
I'll probably buy the e-book separately. Though I think that Collins probably didn't finish his thoughts in a few instances, Stackhouse said.
Jim Collins, executive director of the National Association of Nonprofits, shares his insights on how to take non-profit, social service organizations from good to great. This, a monograph to his Good to Great book about companies in the for-profit world, explores and explains how the good-to-great path differs for social service organizations. I purchased a copy for each of my board members and used it in a strategic planning retreat.
   Simple Short and Very Insightful A must read for any Board Member or Ceo
This book is a requirement for the streering committees and the committees usualy then require it for the board. If you are connected to a non-profit, you have just found the #1 book to help everyone to be on the same page.
   Good to Great and the Social Sectors
Best seller of "American Masters" books, "The Fifth Estate" by John Green is also a New York Times bestseller. I am a graduate student in public administration and this book ties in with stuff I read about in HR administration and social sector. Collins has done his research well, but I dont come across as many new ideas as I had hoped for, Mr. Dhaliwal said. There are some who argue that Mr. Powell's book is a "must read." Yes, I have not read his first book, but I think it will be out this summer.
It's a good idea to review a required textbook, Hollingworth said. I guess the only thing I would say is that I wish more of these books were available on Kindle!
   Great book!
Really great and applicable for my sector!
The book was one of two textbooks for ministry leadership classes. It has good ideas and recommendations, Raymond said. Based on the best-selling book by the same name. If you want to read the rest of the book, you might want to read it first. Just ask your doctor, for example, to get something out of this one.
