Summer is here! What does that mean? If your high school was like mine, it means stacks of summer reading. We here at TriplePundit work hard to bring you all the news you need to know about sustainability in business – and we do it all year round. But sometimes, let’s face it, you need to go deeper into a subject – and there are many great books to help you do that.
That’s why every week this summer, we’ll be giving away a CSR-related book to one lucky reader.
Last week’s book was Enough Is Enough: Building a Sustainable Economy in a World of Finite Resources by Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill. And the winner, chosen by random number generator, is Chris O. Congratulations! Thanks to everyone else who entered. Still want some summer reading? Don’t give up, we have a brand new book to offer this week!
This week’s book is: True to Yourself: leading a values-based business by Mark Albion.
From the publisher:
Many leaders of small businesses want to serve the common good, but everyday pressures can make that extremely difficult. What tools are available to lead an organization that’s obligated to more than the financial bottom line? Utilizing a sleek, condensed format, “True to Yourself provides potent, practical advice for leaders looking to make their small business profitable and sustainable. Arguing that small-business leaders that look beyond the bottom-line are not only more fulfilled, but also more successful, author Mark Albion shows how by embodying competence, commitment, and compassion any small businessperson can lead more effectively. A series of five best practices forms the basis of a full plan to that shows readers how to bring the three C’s to their business. Equally useful for those starting out or veterans of many years, True to Yourself reveals tried-and-true methods for keeping a values-based business on track.
