The Glass is Always Full: Lessons for Managerial Excellence in the Human Services is a creative approach to helping students understand some of the most common dilemmas faced in nonprofit agencies and organizations. It is a unique book that conveys the challenges in human service agencies via two stories of nonprofit organizations. One is constantly dealing with one crisis after another and is usually in a reactive mode. The second story tells of an organization that is run as a learning organization and thus is more effective in running efficiently, as it is in a constant state of evaluating and learning from its mistakes. At the end of each chapter are reflective questions and finally after both stories are two theoretical models that help explain what is happening in these organizations. The authors own a consulting company and train thousands of individuals a year. They anticipate including this book in their training offerings as part of the registration. In addition to the training market, the book will also be of value in courses on Human Services Management and administration. The features and benefits of this book include the following: 1) Conveys important material in a new, creative format2) Helps deliver important concepts in small doses, followed by discussion questions3) Authors speak, train and teach regularly which will have a great impact on sales4) Lead author is also working on a T1 for Macro Practice
