Примечание редактора

Lasting social change…

Based on the podcast of the same name, this book from Manekin is full of positive stories of lasting social change. Meet entrepreneurs who faced some of the hardest problems in their lives and tackled them head-on with thoughtfulness and compassion. “Larger Than Yourself” is a primer on how to make the world a better place, despite the deluge of negative news.

Описание

A fresh, road-tested guide to growing a flicker of an idea into a full-blown movement, often using unexpected and even counterintuitive principles

It’s an age-old question: Why do some great ideas or inventions take off and soar while others never get off the ground? Today, with more and more young entrepreneurs seeking to incorporate social justice, economic equity, climate concerns, and communal health into their endeavors, the need for practical-yet-think-big answers is great. Thibault Manekin has a few. In 2002, eight years after the fall of apartheid, recent college graduate Manekin moved from his hometown of Baltimore to Durban, South Africa, on the strength of an idea: What if basketball could bridge even the deepest social divides? Despite enormous obstacles, such as the HIV/AIDS crisis, and fueled by support from figures including Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama, he proved that it could. Manekin then took the lessons he’d learned back to Baltimore, where he asked himself how the real estate industry could be reimagined to unite cities, empower communities, and launch powerful ideas. Larger Than Yourself tells this story but is about much more than Manekin himself. It also profiles the remarkable real-world change makers he has worked with, and the innovative practices he has instituted, in the profitable companies and nonprofit organizations he has helped to create. Manekin makes these methods accessible to all, meaningful to anyone, and inspirational to everyone with an idea, a hope, and a purpose-driven dream.

  • (5/5)
    This is one of the most amazing books I have listened to in a while. The rawness of vulnerability, authenticity and acceptance from Thibault is incredible. Leading from behind and allowing others to shine is what makes great leaders. Being intentional in changing the world and taking actions to go to unknown places and start uncomfortable conversations is what helps drive change and impact in this world. Loved every bit of this book.
