Doing Good. . . Says Who? explores the impact of good intentions from the inside. The authors conducted over 400 interviews and synthesized the lessons learned. The end result is that you are on the ground with volunteers, nonprofits, donors, and—most uniquely—the intended beneficiaries of good will. Through story telling, humor, analysis, practical advice and a discussion guide, five key concepts emerge: 1. Respect and value people2. Build trust through relationships3. Do “with” rather than “for”4. Ensure feedback and accountability5. Evaluate every step of the way These principles will help you evaluate your motivations, question assumptions, and turn good intentions into positive outcomes.
