Examine five actionable principles that can become your inspiration for developing a sustainable business model for your organization:

  • Restructure industry norms as did the executive director who inspired teaching excellence in American public schools.
  • Change market dynamics similar to a Kenyan local who revolutionized farmers' abilities to eliminate under-bidding and leverage the best prices for commodities.
  • Use market forces to create social value like a Peace Corps veteran who introduced Fair Trade USA to American consumers.
  • Advance full citizenship similar to Argentina's efforts to reconnect the mentally ill with society and vice versa.
  • Cultivate empathy like the Canadians do with Roots of Empathy, ending aggressive behavior among children.
And more: Understand the time-tested models that any individual leader can apply to bring about lasting, systemic change; and discover some of today's most innovative and effective approaches to solving social challenges.
