Forces For Good from the Author: Leslie Crutchfield. An innovative guide to how great nonprofits achieve extraordinary social impact. What makes great nonprofits great? Authors Crutchfield and McLeod Grant searched for the answer over several years, employing a rigorous research methodology which derived from books on for-profits like Built to Last. They studied 12 nonprofits that have achieved extraordinary levels of impact—from Habitat for Humanity to the Heritage Foundation—and distilled six counterintuitive practices that these organizations use to change the world. This book has lessons for all readers interested in creating significant social change, including nonprofit managers, donors and volunteers. Leslie R. Crutchfield (Washington, D.C.) is a managing director of Ashoka and research grantee of the Aspen Institute. Heather McLeod Grant (Palo Alto, CA) is a nonprofit consultant and advisor to Duke University’s Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship and the Stanford Center for Social Innovation. Crutchfield and Grant were co-founding editors of Who Cares, a national magazine reaching 50,000 readers in circulation between 1993-2000.

A Force For Good from the Author: Daniel Goleman. For more than half a century, in such books as The Art of Happiness and The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Inner Peace, the Dalai Lama has guided us along the path to compassion and taught us how to improve our inner lives. In A Force for Good, with the help of his longtime friend Daniel Goleman, the New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence, the Dalai Lama explains how to turn our compassionate energy outward. This revelatory and inspiring work provides a singular vision for transforming the world in practical and positive ways. Much more than just the most prominent exponent of Tibetan Buddhism, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is also a futurist who possesses a profound understanding of current events and a remarkable canniness for modern social issues. When he takes the stage worldwide, people listen. A Force for Good combines the central concepts of the Dalai Lama, empirical evidence that supports them, and true stories of people who are putting his ideas into action—showing how harnessing positive energies and directing them outward has lasting and meaningful effects. Goleman details the science of compassion and how this singular guiding motivation has the power to • break such destructive social forces as corruption, collusion, and bias • heal the planet by refocusing our concerns toward our impact on the systems that support all life • reverse the tendency toward systemic inequity through transparency and accountability • replace violence with dialogue • counter us-and-them thinking by recognizing human oneness • create new economic systems that work for everyone, not just the powerful and rich • design schooling that teaches empathy, self-mastery, and ethics Millions of people have turned to the Dalai Lama for his unparalleled insight into living happier, more purposeful lives. Now, when the world needs his guidance more than ever, he shows how every compassion-driven human act—no matter how small—is integral for a more peaceful, harmonious world, building a force for a better future. Revelatory, motivating, and highly persuasive, A Force for Good is arguably the most important work from one of the world’s most influential spiritual and political figures. Praise for A Force for Good “A Force for Good offers ideas that every individual can work with and build on, ranging from things that help the environment to things that help the less fortunate. [It’s] a long-range, global plan from a brilliant futuristic thinker, so this is a book that can be of value to any human living on Earth. When you’re ready for a jolt of optimism, pick up this book.”—Pop Culture Nerd “Far from being a self-help book, this examines specific ideas espoused by the Dalai Lama, such as emotional hygiene, compassionate economy, and education of the heart that can make the world a better place. An optimistic and thoughtful primer with practical applications.”—Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

Sumantra Ghoshal On Management from the Author: Sumantra Ghoshal. Sumantra Ghoshal on Management represents GhoshalÂżs twenty-year intellectual odyssey to challenge the underpinnings of management thought; to expose, rework and replace the foundation stones of management thinking. Exploring his key ideas, and reflecting his genius for collaboration along the way, this book shows how he had become a force for good in the world of management. "This book celebrates a great mind, a great spirit, and a dear friend." Henry Mintzberg ÂżGhoshal, a management guru, was not just a man of boundless energy and inventiveness; he also married the theoretical and the pragmatic in a way that is rare in the world of management literature.Âż The Economist ÂżSumantra Ghoshal was a brilliant and original thinker in a field which needs more of them. He used his intellect to understand organisations and to help managers to make them better places to work and greater forces for goodÂż The Guardian The death of Sumantra Ghoshal in 2004 denied management thinking of one of its most innovative and influential thinkers. As much as the quality of his ideas, it was Sumantra GhoshalÂżs approach to research that marked him out as exceptional. He was a rare combination of idealist, contrarian and intellectual, and it was the interplay between these attributes that allowed him to make such an influential mark on the practice of management. He saw the world as it could be, rather than as it was. The scope of his work spanned the worlds of strategy, organisation and above all, management. He drew on the fields of economics, sociology, philosophy and psychology to ask profound questions about the nature of management thinking and the reality of management action. What is the role of the organisation in shaping human activity, and indeed the role of the corporation in modern society? What is the role of management theory, and the business schools that teach it, in framing the behaviour of managers? What does it mean to manage with energy, purpose and responsibility? These are questions that have never been more pertinent to managers everywhere, and the answers contained in the work of Sumantra Ghoshal reveal a defining view of management as a force for good. Sumantra Ghoshal on Management articulates a purpose for corporations as versatile and creative amplifiers of human will and effort across natural and cultural boundaries. A purpose for managers as responsible and reflective leaders, and a role for management theory as the genuine root of positive and purposeful management behaviour. At the heart of this work is the view that better management theory can create better management practice This unique collection brings together some of Sumantra GhoshalÂżs most influential work; on managing across borders, managing and the corporation and a positive new management agenda, and some of his most innovative collaborators; including Christopher Bartlett, Henry Mintzberg, Lynda Gratton, Peter Moran and Nitin Noria. Here you can find his defining contributions to management thinking in The Sloan Management Review, Harvard Business Review, Academy of Management Review andCalifornia Management Review, drawn together with original commentaries by leading management thinkers. We hope that Sumantra Ghoshal on Management will stand as a companion to a challenging and insightful body of management thought, and in commemoration of one the most inspiring and thoughtful management writers of his generation. In every sense, a force for good. "Sumantra Ghoshal was one of a small handful of management thinkers who could speak with equal authority to the world of business and the world of academia. His ideas were challenging, insightful and often heretical, and his impact on field of management was profound. This book captures the essence of Sumantra's work as well as his more recent ideas about the deep challenges facing management theory.Âż Laura Tyson, Dean, London Business School "Sumantra Ghoshal was one of the past quarter century's most original and creative researchers in the field of management practice. This collection is a valuable resource that presents a challenging yet cohesive set of ideas that are testament to his importance as a provocatively original thinker in a world too often characterized by conventional wisdom and conformity." Christopher A. Bartlett, Thomas D. Casserly, Jr. Professor of Business Administration Emeritus, Harvard Business School "Sumantra Ghoshal changed the way we understand organizations and the people who populate them. In March 2004 he passed away in the midst of creating a sustained argument about the role of purpose in organizations and the natural of human goodness. This important book captures the highlights of a lifetime of work and creates a foundation from which scholars and practicing managers can craft their own purpose." Professor Lynda Gratton , London Business School
