To me, having a learning organization is an important component of organizational success. You can’t get stale, you can’t sit on status quo, and you can’t stop moving forward. When I was looking for non-profit resources, I searched through a variety of books looking for suggestions, methodologies, and options that were not boring or ones that were so obvious. Then I found this guidebook. It’s big and thick but it is wonderful. The book has a variety of margin icons that help guide you through the book (and also help find activities you may be interested in. For example, one icon is a solo exercise. If you want to try a few of them out, you can go through the book only looking for those icons to try out some solo exercises). Icons also include team exercises, systems stories, tool kits, and infrastructure. Each chapter guides you through a thought, tells a related story, offers helpful charts and graphs, as well as questions to think about along the way. This book has really enhanced my knowledge base and gave me additional resources to utilize afterwards. Strongly recommended for those who manage peoples, teams, or lots of strategy.
