Are you a senior corporate executive who wants to make a leap to the non-profit world? What are the risks and rewards? This book spells it out by recounting the journeys of a baker’s dozen of corporate high-fliers who have made this transition and more than thrived. Their stories tell what non-profit leaders actually do, what they had to consider in making the decision about whether to change jobs, what they learnt after shifting from a corporate to a non-profit, and their advice for anyone considering a similar move.
