In this collection of 17 essays authored by 29 prominent scholars and executives, editors David Cooperrider and Audrey Selian present business leaders with a multi-pronged, urgent call to action. They argue passionately that business contributed to the existential crises facing the planet, and it must be part of the solution. Their forward-looking insights push beyond the purely conceptual realm of emerging management theory. They chart a path toward humane, collaborative, sustainable business models that support people and planet – while turning a healthy profit.
