Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470195460, Hardcover)The authors offer a framework that allows organizations to go beyond quick fixes and fundraising strategies to a broader paradigm that encompasses community and organization building. What if every person involved with an organization was fully engaged and shared a common goal? What if the efforts of a relatively small ring of staff and board members were amplified by everyone touched by the organization, including current and former volunteers, staff, board members, clients, constituents, funders and supporters? That, the authors show, is the way a charismatic organization operates. The book provides numerous examples of how successful organizations have made this shift, as well as action steps that all organizations can take to perform better.

"Certain patterns are evident among successful nonprofits. In the same way charismatic individuals attract followers, dynamic organizations draw dedicated donors and committed champions. These groups don't depend on charismatic leaders-rather, they strengthen their core and build strong networks of support within and around themselves. In The Charismatic Organization, renowned experts Shirley Sagawa and Deborah Jospin show nonprofits of all types how to restructure their organizations, internally and externally, to become more charismatic, and more effective."
