Only recently, Beverly Schwartz released Rippling: How Social Entrepreneurs Spread Innovation. It lays out 5 actionable principles for how individuals can become a Changemaker and effectively serve their culture and community.
In the book, Schwartz shares nearly 20 personal narratives from Ashoka Fellows throughout the world and drawing on a wealth of insights offered by some of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, she provides a blueprint for visionary thinking and demonstrates how people can drive meaningful change.
The 5 principles learned from those case studies that according to her define successful models of changemaking for both individual leaders and organisations are:
1) Restructuring industry norms
2) Changing market dynamics
3) Using market forces to create social value
4) Advancing full citizenship
5) Cultivating empathy
