Quote of the Day (December 10, 2008)

December 10, 2008

Quotemarks"From the chief executive of a nonprofit on down through the ranks of paid staff and volunteers, the person with the most responsibility for an individual's development is the person himself -- not the boss.

-- Peter Drucker, Managing the Nonprofit Organization: Principles and Practices (1990)
