A course I’d like to see for social change organizations

I’d love to see a course for leaders (or prospective leaders) of social change organizations built around the following core readings:

  1. Nonprofit Strategy Revolution” by David La Piana
  2. Immunity to Change” by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey
  3. Switch” by Chip and Dan Heath
  4. The MoveOn Effect” by David Karpf

What else would you add to this list?

  1. Two of Dan Pallotta’s books, “Uncharitable” and “Charity Case”. After his TED talk earlier this year his message is finally getting some traction, although you might not like everything he has to say 🙂

  2. We can agree to disagree about Palotta, I suppose. It is unfortunate to see him getting traction, because in my opinion his message, while it has a kernel of truth in it, is mostly toxic to the sector. Ivan Boothe has a nice perspective on it at: http://rootwork.org/blog/2013/04/uncharitable-how-businesses-co-opt-nonprofits-undermine-their-potential. And there’s also some nice, older background at: http://www.tacticalphilanthropy.com/2008/12/uncharitable/.
