The Business of Building a Better World: The Leadership Revolution That Is Changing Everything

The Business of Building a Better World: The Leadership Revolution That Is Changing Everything

Author: Various Narrator: Natalie Hoyt Release Date: 01/11/2021

Twenty-nine leading scholars and executives provide a visionary look at the future of business, propelling past damaging industrial-age values to uncover the key ingredients of humanistic, ecologically sustainable, and intergenerational prosperity. Through the exploration of robust cases and stories packed with deep insight and vital science, this extraordinary collection explores how we can adapt our notions of value, markets, and models of cooperation and collective action to create a world where economies and businesses excel, all people thrive, and nature flourishes. In part I, "The Business of Business Is Betterment," the contributors show how enterprises today are further developing-and even taking a quantum leap beyond-the multistakeholder logic of "shared value creation." Part II, "Net Positive = Innovation's New Frontier," is focused on what companies can and are doing to move away from "doing no harm" to playing an active role in solving environmental, social, and economic problems. The final section, "Ultimate Advantage: A Leadership Revolution That Is Changing Everything," looks at new leadership paradigms-characterized by unexpected qualities like virtue, love, compassion, and connection-that are crucial to creating engaged, empowered, innovative, and out-performing enterprises. This book is designed to galvanize change and unite a global community of inquiry and action. It establishes the conceptual cornerstones for a new kind of business practice that will lead the way to an equitable, sustainable, and flourishing future.

Now Comes Good Sailing: Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau

Now Comes Good Sailing: Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau

This audiobook brings together original pieces on Thoreau by twenty-seven of today's leading writers With narration by William Hope, Barbara Barnes, Kaliswa Brewster, Kate Harper, Peter Marinker, and Ako Mitchell Features essays by Jennifer Finney Boylan • Kristen Case • George Howe Colt • Gerald Early • Paul Elie • Will Eno • Adam Gopnik • Lauren Groff • Celeste Headlee • Pico Iyer • Alan Lightman • James Marcus • Megan Marshall • Michelle Nijhuis • Zoë Pollak • Jordan Salama • Tatiana Schlossberg • A. O. Scott • Mona Simpson • Stacey Vanek Smith • Wen Stephenson • Robert Sullivan • Amor Towles • Sherry Turkle • Geoff Wisner • Rafia Zakaria • and a cartoon by Sandra Boynton The world is never done catching up with Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862), the author of Walden, “Civil Disobedience,” and other classics. A prophet of environmentalism and vegetarianism, an abolitionist, and a critic of materialism and technology, Thoreau even seems to have anticipated a world of social distancing in his famous experiment at Walden Pond. In Now Comes Good Sailing, twenty-seven of today’s leading writers offer wide-ranging original pieces exploring how Thoreau has influenced and inspired them—and why he matters more than ever in an age of climate, racial, and technological reckoning. Here, Lauren Groff retreats from the COVID-19 pandemic to a rural house and writing hut, where, unable to write, she rereads Walden; Pico Iyer describes how Thoreau provided him with an unlikely guidebook to Japan; Gerald Early examines Walden and the Black quest for nature; Rafia Zakaria reflects on solitude, from Thoreau’s Concord to her native Pakistan; Mona Simpson follows in Thoreau’s footsteps at Maine’s Mount Katahdin; Jennifer Finney Boylan reads Thoreau in relation to her experience of coming out as a trans woman; Adam Gopnik traces Thoreau’s influence on the New Yorker editor E. B. White and his book Charlotte’s Web; and there’s much more. The result is a lively and compelling collection that richly demonstrates the countless ways Thoreau continues to move, challenge, and provoke readers today.

Of This Our Country: Acclaimed Nigerian writers on the home, identity and culture they know

Of This Our Country: Acclaimed Nigerian writers on the home, identity and culture they know

Author: Tba, Various Narrator: Oseloka Obi, Weruche Opia Release Date: 01/09/2021

To define Nigeria is to tell a half-truth. Many have tried, but most have concluded that it is impossible to capture the true scope and significance of Africa’s most populous nation through words or images. And yet here, through personal essays from 24 of its writers, a more accurate picture comes into view: one that details the realities and contradictions of patriotism, examines the role of class and privilege in Nigerian society, juxtaposes inherited tradition with the diasporic experience and explores the power of storytelling and its intrinsic link to Nigeria’s history. Within these pages, acclaimed and award-winning writers share memories and experiences of Nigeria that can be found nowhere else, bringing to the fore a country whose influence can be found everywhere. Powerful, lyrical and entirely unforgettable, OF THIS OUR COUNTRY weaves together a living portrait of Nigeria, one that is as beautiful as it is complex. With essays from: Nels Abbey, Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀, Yomi Adegoke, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Oyinkan Akande, Ike Anya, Sefi Atta, Bolu Babalola, J K Chukwu, Abi Daré, Inua Ellams Chịkọdịlị Emelụmadụ, Caleb Femi, Helon Habila, Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, Anietie Isong, Okey Ndibe, Chigozie Obioma, Irenosen Okojie, Cheluchi Onyemelukwe, Lola Shoneyin, Umar Turaki, Chika Unigwe and Hafsa Zayyan.

Voices of Change: Twelve Visions for How to Solve the Climate Crisis

In Voices of Change, a group of Canada's most accomplished young environmentalists outline bold visions for how we can fight climate change and create a sustainable way of living.   The twelve essays in Voices of Change, by fifteen inspiring youth leading the climate change movement in Canada, explore the most challenging issues around climate change, from sustainability to activism. The contributors, from all across the nation, describe their own work developing successful initiatives that have positively brought about environmental change-from creating a "Library of Things" in Waterloo, Ontario, to an ocean-education program in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The authors of this anthology speak passionately about their own experiences working for climate justice-facing racism, apathy, and a world changed by Covid-19-while also expressing hope and exploring solutions for how youth can fight climate change in Canada and beyond, effecting significant change. The essays in the anthology are:   "Solastalgia-Getting Ahead of the Climate Crisis" by Abhayjeet Sachal and Sukhmeet Sachal  "Climate Change in the COVID Era" by Asha Mior "Embracing My Inner Child" by Brandon Nguyen "The Intersectionality of Climate Change" by Chúk Odenigbo "The Sustainability of Stuff" by Devon Fernandes "Navigating Environmental Hypocrisy" by Erinn Drage "Fostering Social Innovation in Times of Technological Transition" by Eva Wu and Sebastien Molgat "Creating Space for Youth in Climate Decision Making" by Helen Watts "Ocean Activism From a Landlocked Province" by Jasveen Brar "Antarctica and the Power of Art" by Leah Davidson "Art as a Tool For Social Awareness" by Qurat Dar "It Begins with You" by Joel Dragon Smith and Sean Myomi Hougan   A passionate call to action, the essays in Voices of Change are vibrant, thoughtful, and determined. Together they offer a powerful blueprint for new ways that we can think about climate change and do our part to bring about solutions that will positively affect the environment and the lives of all Canadians today and in the future. As climate activist Asha Mior says: "The time for action is now. Will you join us?"

And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again: Writers from Around the World on the COVID-19 Pandemic

And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again: Writers from Around the World on the COVID-19 Pandemic

Author: Various Narrator: Raechel Wong Release Date: 01/04/2021

As our world is transformed by the coronavirus pandemic, writers offer a powerful antidote to the fearful confines of isolation: a window onto lives and corners of the world beyond our own. In Mauritius, a journalist contends with denialism and mourns the last days of summer, lost to the lockdown. In Paris, a writer struggles to protect his young son from fear. In Chile, protesters who prevailed against tear gas and rubber bullets are now halted by a virus. In Queens, after thirteen-hour shifts in the ER, a doctor dons running shoes and makes the long jog home. And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again takes its title from the last line of Dante's Inferno, when the poet and his guide emerge from hell to once again behold the beauty of the heavens. In that spirit, the stories, essays, and poems in this collection-from beloved authors including Jhumpa Lahiri, Mario Vargas Llosa, Eavan Boland, Daniel Alarcon, Jon Lee Anderson, Claire Messud, Ariel Dorfman, and many more-detail the harrowing experiences of life in the pandemic, while pointing toward a less isolated future. Together they comprise a profound global portrait of the defining moment of our time, and send a clarion call for solidarity across borders.

Has your child outgrown their kid's Bible but still doesn't quite have the attention span for all 800,000 words of Scripture yet? Then, the Witness the Bible dramatized devotional series makes a great sola scriptura transition. As currently featured on Bible Gateway, this series is designed to help young believers and seekers activate the reality of Jesus and His love for us throughout the entire Bible. And now you can have all three volumes in the series in one complete Anthology. The first volume, Genesis to Jesus, presents a kind of “highlight reel” of Jesus' life in Scripture (up to His birth in Bethlehem) by synthesizing different parts of the Old and New Testament into one single narrative. The second volume, Joseph and Judah, focuses entirely on the narrative of Genesis 37-50, with a special awareness of Judah's transformation from Joseph's jealous and arrogant older brother into a specially-blessed and humble member of Christ's earthly family. The third volume, Mark, presents the Bible's second Gospel with the goal of fostering its imagination as vividly as possible in younger minds. The text, although gently abridged in places, is taken entirely from the Revised Geneva Translation of the Holy Bible. Help the kids you love draw closer to God with Witness the Bible: Anthology (performed by 7-time #1 Amazon Best-Selling Narrator, Steve Cook).
