Berrett-Koehler is an independent publisher dedicated to an ambitious mission: Creating a World
That Works for All.
We believe that to truly create a better world, action is needed at all levels— individual, organizational,
and societal. At the individual level, our publications help people align their lives with their values and
with their aspi ra tions for a better world. At the organizational level, our publications promote progres-
sive leadership and management practices, socially responsible approaches to business, and humane
and effective organizations. At the societal level, our publications advance social and economic
justice, shared prosperity, sustainability, and new solutions to national and global issues.
A major theme of our publications is “Opening Up New Space.” Berrett- Koehler titles challenge con-
ventional thinking, introduce new ideas, and foster positive change. Their common quest is changing
the underlying beliefs, mindsets, institutions, and structures that keep generating the same cycles of
problems, no matter who our leaders are or what improvement programs we adopt.
We strive to practice what we preach—to operate our publishing company in line with the ideas in
our books. At the core of our approach is stewardship, which we defi ne as a deep sense of responsi-
bility to administer the company for the benefi t of all of our “stakeholder” groups: authors, customers,
employees, investors, service providers, and the communities and environment around us.
We are grateful to the thousands of readers, authors, and other friends of the company who consider
themselves to be part of the “BK Community.” We hope that you, too, will join us in our mission.
