WIStv.com Columbia, SC: Non-Profits Tap the Experience of Retired Execs
WIStv.com Columbia, SC: Non-Profits Tap the Experience of Retired Execs: "Doucette now spends 50 to 60 hours a month as an adviser with the Executive Service Corps of Southern California. For nearly two years, Doucette worked with an organization that serves the homeless and at-risk students. The board of directors was so dysfunctional that the group was unable to adequately carry out its mission. He helped the board purge some members and recruit others. 'Many managers in the nonprofit sector have wonderful social-services skills, but lack the business skills that most for-profit managers possess,' he says."
