"A much–needed addition to the field of nonprofit leadership. Nuanced, balanced, optimistic, and practical, Working Across Generations should be required reading for anyone who cares about the sustainability of this essential sector."
Akaya Windwood, president and CEO, Rockwood Leadership Institute
"Challenging the collective belief that the leadership crisis in the nonprofit sector is about retiring baby boomers, Kunreuther, Kim, and Rodriguez offer a new set of lenses to look deeply at the existing data, reframe the problem, and reimagine fresh solutions to support the field. This book is a must for practitioners, but also for nonprofit scholars and the students they teach."
Sonia Ospina, professor, Research Center for Leadership in Action, Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University
"Instead of ′the sky is falling′ alarms about generational change that are reminiscent of the Y2K scare, Kunreuther, Kim, and Rodriguez have written a real–world look at the context and complexities of the changes to come and a practical approach for maximizing the opportunities that these changes present to us."
Jan Masaoka, director and editor in chief, BlueAvocado.org
"Leadership, leadership, leadership. The social sector needs more leadership. The social sector needs new leaders. Or does it? Read this solidly researched and cogently argued work by Kunreuther, Kim, and Rodriguez. You will be enlightened."
Sanjeev Khagram, Wyss Scholar, Harvard Business School Social Enterprise Program
