A New Way To Wealth
The Power of Doing More With Less
by Bruce Piasecki View author's profile page

Overview


"An impassioned and engaging call to make life and work more sustainable." —Kirkus Reviews

"A NEW WAY TO WEALTH is a master work on work in a world of change. Piasecki does it again." —Chris Coulter, CEO, Globescan

"Inspired by the way Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen & Ben Franklin lived their creative lives, A NEW WAY TO WEALTH is the catalyst needed for a conversation to discover your own solutions." —Bobby Carlton, Director of Immersive Learning, Ready Learner One

"Piasecki has created a new metric in these pages, the concept of competitive frugality, explained in practical detail in one coherent swoop." —Richard Ellis, Vice President, Corporate Social responsibility, Walgreens Boots Alliance

"Piascki provides a message for our carbon- and capital-constrained world. Clever and informed, his nineteenth book delivers an urgent, articulate call for a future that is at once frugal and fulfilling, and, most importantly, sustainable." —Paul Grondahl, Director of the NYS Writers Institute at the University at Albany, and author of several books

"In a world increasingly constrained by planetary boundaries and the impacts of climate and social change, this book is both intelligent and fun. It brings together the full extent of Bruce's personal experience and journey—along with the unique individuals with whom he has worked over decades—to offer wonderful insights on what it takes to transform to a purposeful, sustainable, and winning experience." —Dr. Dominic Emery, Chief of Staff, bp

"A NEW WAY TO WEALTH calls us away from the mindless dribble of competition for merely personal gain, to commit to business and personal practices that sustain and bring wealth to the common good as well. A book to buy, read, remember, and cherish." —L. Rostaing (Ross) Tharaud, Attorney

"Bruce Piasecki's newest book colorfully describes the secret to organizational success in the age of climate change—competitive frugality! Not mere belt-tightening, but the joyful pursuit of innovations that efficiently build social capital. Piasecki is a man of insight and heart; we would do well to follow his lead." —William Throop, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Environmental Studies, Green Mountain College

"Bruce Piasecki's latest book reminds us of the importance of the traditional principles of personal integrity, frugality, and a genuine concern for others. For anyone who seeks to lead today, understanding these principles and learning how to apply them effectively are essential, and Piasecki's latest book will help you do that." —Ken Strassner, Yale Attorney

Description


Inspired by the wisdom of Ben Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Dylan—and their competitive insights into frugality, Bruce Piasecki draws from a lifetime of specializing in corporate governance, energy, product and environmental strategy, and calls for an urgent new era of restraint, public mindedness, and social purpose in capitalism. This book helps you explore the differences between self-determination and self-actualization in a time of carbon and capital constraints. What is Wealth? What is Enough? The path to success and the full glory of wealth is doing more with less! "A New Way To Wealth" will empower you, your teams, employees, learners, leaders, and organizations during these times of challenging social change, to be successful through frugality; to refocus with a sense of conviction; to refine instincts for innovation and survival; to build competitive advantage and learn to accelerate progress through positive relationships. In this power rests the ability to live a fulfilling life, to promote social good, and to achieve organizational sustainability and growth.

About the author


Dr. Bruce Piasecki is the founder of a global management consulting firm, AHC Group, Inc, and an author on shared value and social response capitalism. He has been a New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post Book World, and Publisher's Weekly bestseller on prior titles. He writes in the personal narrative style started by the former President of Princeton Jonathan Edwards, then to Ralph Waldo Emerson in his personal essays and Walt Whitman in "Song of Myself" and Whitman's many prose works like "Specimen Days". Piasecki has been writing in this Tom Wolfe style on issues like climate change since his 1990 book, "In Search of Environmental Excellence: Moving Beyond Blame for Simon and Schuster". Now 33 years later this new title sums up the principles by which he built his firm and its wealth, and how he influenced firms ranging from Merck, Walmart, Toyota and Walgreens in the process. This is a book best thought of as about competing in the new swift and severe century more than a book about business. This business and society book is about the values of being competitive for social good and to help make companies respond to growing social needs regarding the elderly, the poor, those in need of enhanced transportation, and those in this new hybrid of an in-person and a remote virtual economy. This book is introduced by Dr. Micah Shippee, an expert in the new world learning organizations, and CEO and founder of Ready Learner One.
