People-Centered Leadership (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Too often, leaders see a 'gap' as a problem or something to avoid. In his work with leaders and organizations at growth-transition points, Scott Patchin has become convinced that the basic challenge of leadership comes down to creating and managing the gaps - those spaces between where you are now and where you want to be.

In this insightful whitepaper, Patchin outlines the three key gaps that every leader must master for effective leadership and the steps you can take to fill those gaps. He then looks at the four habits you should develop and commit to in order to successfully manage each individual performance gap.

Also included:
- Three hidden threats to effectively managing the gap
- How to take ownership of your gaps
- Steps to create an action plan
- Self-assessment

10 Management Models
Fashions in business thinking change abruptly. The way we think about leadership, for instance, has shifted radically from the genius of great entrepreneurs like Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford, through leadership as a science, leadership that releases human potential, the leader as strategist and warrior, customer champion, globalist and shareholder advocate, to, more recently, leadership as stewardship of the environment. Hundreds of models have been developed to track, measure and forecast business solutions, but as fashions shift how can we apply them in real organizations that have to succeed outside the classroom? 10 Management Models is taken from the book, 100+ Management Models by the same authors.

Leap of Reason: Managing to Outcomes In an Era of Scarcity
Leap of Reason is the product of decades of hard-won insights from philanthropist Mario Morino, McKinsey & Company, and top social-sector innovators. It is intended to spark the critically important conversations that every nonprofit board and leadership team should have in this new era of austerity. The authors make a convincing case that the nation’s growing fiscal crisis will force all of us in the social sector to be clearer about our aspirations, more intentional in defining our approaches, more rigorous in gauging our progress, more willing to admit mistakes, more capable of quickly adapting and improving—all with an unrelenting focus on improving lives.
“This monograph is a must-read for nonprofit leaders. It will help you stay singularly focused on your core mission and help you be effective at making a difference in people’s lives.”
—Geoffrey Canada, Founder, Harlem Children’s Zone
