Laurie Bassi and her coauthors show that despite the dispiriting headlines, we are entering a more hopeful economic age. The authors call it the “Worthiness Era.” And in it, the good guys are poised to win. Good Company explains how this new era results from a convergence of forces, ranging from the explosion of online information sharing to the emergence of the ethical consumer and the arrival of civic-minded Millennials. Across the globe, people are choosing the companies in their lives in the same way they choose the guests they invite into their homes. They are demanding that companies be “good company.” Proof is in the numbers. The authors created the Good Company Index to take a systematic look at Fortune 100 companies’ records as employers, sellers, and stewards of society and the planet. The results were clear: worthiness pays off. Companies in the same industry with higher scores on the index—that is, companies that have behaved better—outperformed their peers in the stock market. And this is not some academic exercise: the authors have used principles of the index at their own investment firm to deliver market-beating results. Using a host of real-world examples, Bassi and company explain each aspect of corporate worthiness and describe how you can assess other companies with which you do business as a consumer, investor, or employee. This detailed guide will help you determine who the good guys are—those companies that are worthy of your time, your loyalty, and your money.

A unique collection of personal stories by women from many denominations about the struggle for equality by women in the ministry and those still excluded from it. They tell of stereotyping, assumptions, tokenism, discrimination, trivialisation; abuse, isolation and the 'stained glass celling' created by the church's obsession with power, rank and position. This book makes clear the kinds of obstacles in the way of women and gives a glimpse of the faulty theology that underlies opposition to them. It highlights the challenge that women bring to existing church structures and offers hope for a truly all-inclusive, all-affirming and empowering ministry.

Featuring an introduction by President Jimmy Carter The Home Depot cofounder and owner of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons and MLS's Atlanta United shares a vision and a roadmap for values-based business. Arthur M. Blank believes that for good companies, purpose and profit can-and should-go hand in hand. And he should know. Together with cofounder Bernie Marcus, Blank built The Home Depot from an idea and a dream to a $50 billion-dollar company, the leading home improvement retailer in the world. And even while opening a new store every 42 hours, they never lost sight of their commitment to care for their people and communities. In fact, in 2001, The Home Depot was voted America's most socially responsible company. Blank left The Home Depot that same year with a burning question: Could the values and culture that made that company great be replicated? Good Company takes readers inside the story of how he did just that-turning around a struggling NFL team, rebooting a near-bankrupt retail chain, building a brand-new stadium, revitalizing a blighted neighborhood, launching a startup soccer club, and more. "When good companies put the wellbeing of their customers, their associates, and their communities first, financial success will follow," Blank writes. "The entrepreneurs and business leaders of today and tomorrow have an extraordinary opportunity: to prove that through upholding values we can create value-for the company, for the customer, and for the community."

No other dancer has matched, nor ever will, Leslie Edwards's amazing career with the Royal Ballet: more than sixty years of performances, starting in January 1933 and continuing even beyond his official retirement in November 1993. In addition, for the first six years he appeared frequently with Ballet Rambert, and later on he was involved with outside events often featuring Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. And something much more than the length and breadth of his career marked it out as special: there was also a great admiration and affection which he won from his audiences and fellow artists. Over the years, he had a respectable share of leading roles, among them the Lover in Antony Tudor's Jardin aux lilas, Frederick Ashton's own role of the Personage in Les Masques, the title part in Ninette de Valois' The Rake's Progress. Those three choreographers all created roles for him in other ballets and so did John Cranko, Robert Helpmann, Andree Howard, Kenneth MacMillan and Leonide Massine. However, he was seen far more often in smaller parts, and he showed again and again that these can make just as vital a contribution to the ballet's total effect. It is not by chance that both de Valois and Helpmann remarked to him that he knew how to make something out of little material. In addition to taking part in thousands of performances, he invented and for many years led the Royal Ballet's Choreographic Group, to give ambitious young dancers the opportunity of creative work, and took on the post of ballet master to the Royal Opera, as well as teaching at the Royal Ballet School, instructing the children and extras taken on when the company toured, and organising, on a highly ambitious scale, the annual Christmas parties of the Friends of Covent Garden.

In this New York Times bestseller, comedy legend Carol Burnett tells the hilarious behind-the-scenes story of her iconic weekly variety series, The Carol Burnett Show. In In Such Good Company, Carol Burnett pulls back the curtain on the twenty-five-time Emmy-Award winning show that made television history, and she reminisces about the outrageously funny and tender moments that made working on the series as much fun as watching it. Carol delves into little-known stories of the guests, sketches and improvisations that made The Carol Burnett Show legendary, as well as some favorite tales too good not to relive again. While writing this book, Carol rewatched all 276 episodes and screen-grabbed her favorite video stills from the archives to illustrate the chemistry of the actors and the improvisational magic that made the show so successful. Putting the spotlight on everyone from her costars to the impressive list of guest stars, Carol crafts a lively portrait of the talent and creativity that went into every episode. With characteristic wit and incomparable comic timing, she details hiring Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway; shares anecdotes about guest stars and close friends, including Lucille Ball, Roddy Mcdowell, Jim Nabors, Bernadette Peters, Betty Grable, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth, and Betty White; and gives her take on her favorite sketches and the unpredictable moments that took both the cast and viewers by surprise. This book is Carol's love letter to a golden era in television history through the lens of her brilliant show.

In a highly competitive world, many think business success means being ruthless: maximising short-term return for shareholders, cutting overheads, crushing competition, and expanding at an exponential pace. Nothing says this more than Silicon Valley with its macho mantras like 'Move fast and break things' (Facebook) or 'We're a team not a family' (Netflix). But this model is looking increasingly flawed. What if there were another more compassionate way? Julietta Dexter believes there is. In this powerful and hopeful book, the award-winning CEO of The Communications Store explains how she built one of the world's most respected PR & communications companies without compromising her morals and without screwing over her staff or her clients. Highlighting a new paradigm for business, she explains why profit should be just one consideration among several, and why honesty, reliability and diversity are the best foundations for long-term success.
