Two Babson faculty members have authored books that Business Digest
has named to its 10 Best Essential Business Books list for 2013: Rajendra Sisodia’s Conscious Capitalism
and Daniel Isenberg’s Worthless, Impossible and Stupid
According to Business Digest, “The holidays are fast approaching and with them, the chance to catch up on your reading. The team at Business Digest has chosen our ten essential books of the year. Leadership, personal development, innovation…All your favorite themes are here!”
In contrast to CSR and “triple bottom line reporting” (TBL), Conscious Capitalism does not strive to divide value more equitably between company stakeholders but rather to create more value for all. Authors John Mackey and Rajendra Sisodia’s approach rests on four fundamental principles: 1) collective purpose, 2) care for all stakeholders, 3) conscious leadership, and 4) conscious management and organizational culture.
Worthless, Impossible and Stupid
Many aspiring innovators can feel discouraged by the media hype around major innovations. According to Daniel Isenberg, however, you don’t have to be Steve Jobs to be able to turn a simple idea into value creation. His advice is as applicable to entrepreneurs as it is to managers looking to shake up their departments.
