In Nonprofit Consultants: The Extraordinary Hidden Resources in Plain Sight you learn that the right consultant makes a positive impact on your clients, your board and volunteers, your staff, and even your career! But maybe you still have questions, like…

Why would I need a consultant? What kind of work do consultants do? Won’t a consultant just make more work for me? How can you tell if he or she is qualified? How can I tell if they’re working? How are my staff and volunteers going to react? Won’t the board think I can’t handle things? Why do they charge so much, and am I paying the right price? If I want a consultant, how do I even find one? And just who are these people calling themselves consultants and why don’t they have “real” jobs!?
