Overview

A thriving nonprofit workforce elevates the common good.

Nonprofit organizations need their professionals to perform at peak levels, inspire others, maintain relationships with community members, and achieve "reach goals." Grueling hours, unrealistic expectations, and lack of operational supports lead to high burnout and churn among those working in the nonprofit world.

There's lots that nonprofit organizations can do to better support their employees. And, there's plenty that nonprofit professionals, themselves, can do to maintain their own wellbeing, resilience, and happiness on the job.

Mindfulness techniques, scheduling tweaks, reframing professional relationships, finding renewed inspiration, building supportive networks... these and other strategies can improve calm, focus, energy, and drive, while leaving nonprofit professionals feeling more invigorated and inspired!

With this collection of stories, strategies, and worksheets, nonprofit professionals will:

  • Discover practical approaches to cultivating calm
  • Consider ways to prioritize what matters and let go of what doesn't
  • Plan micro-steps for better health and greater joy
  • Reframe self-care as not just an option, but an essential priority for personal wellness and professional performance


Be Well, Do Good is designed to inspire. A highly personal writing style includes the author's observations from three decades of work in the nonprofit space and a lifelong commitment to studying and teaching wellness practices... delivered with candor and a dash of humor. Worksheets provide space to reflect and create. Readers are encouraged to fill up the provided Notes pages and scribble in the margins. Be Well, Do Good thereby becomes a launchpad for new ideas and a personalized guidebook.
