From the Back Cover:

Praise for
MISSION IMPACT

"Mission Impact opens new doors to nonprofit professionals via the Strategic Development Process and cutting-edge concepts that can help produce targeted team results for committed stakeholders. It's like a playbook that champion football coaches use as a guide to gain team results and team victories."
—Gene Hoffman, President, Corporate Strategies International

"Devotees of Peter Drucker's The Five Most Important Questions will find practical examples and well researched and vivid examples of organizations that benefit from a 'mission accomplishment' approach to performance. Sheehan's new work will help each of us in the social sector to define and achieve Mission Impact and change lives." ??
— Susan Phillips Bari, President and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute

"I found Rob Sheehan's new book, Mission Impact, a practical guide to strategic and operational planning. It's not a theoretical treatise, thank goodness, but an essential step-by-step process to help the nonprofit CEO or board work through and develop a game-changing strategic plan."
— Edward F. Leonard, PhD, President, Bethany College

"Mission Impact provides a 'systems-thinking approach' to moving your organization forward. This step-by-step approach takes an intuitive and creative process and makes it a road map to success."
— Jan K. Pruitt, President and CEO, North Texas Food Bank

"Rob Sheehan reminds us to lead change and be aspirational with our vision.Far too often in these difficult times we retreat to the safety of what we've always done. In fact, now is the time for the exact opposite! Mission Impact shows you how to charge forward confidently. I recommend it to anyone running an organization that wants to meet the challenging needs facing us all."
— Bill Kitson, President and CEO, United Way of Greater Toledo
