Impact with Integrity: Repair the World Without Breaking Yourself
DescriptionThe world is on fire and in desperate need of volunteer firefighters. If you've ever wondered if you have a purpose, if there's a place in the world in need of your unique genius, the answer is yes. And the right time to step into your purpose and explore the path of your potential is now. But you don't have to do this work alone--and you shouldn't do it without taking care of yourself first. Burnout rates in the helping professions are off the charts, but we won't make progress "out there" until we take full ownership of whatever we're feeling "in here."
Becky Margiotta's Impact with Integrity: Repair the World Without Breaking Yourself is a call to action, but also an invitation to reclaim your agency and mobilize your creativity in order to enact meaningful, efficient, and effective social change. With authenticity, grit, and grace, Margiotta lays out a proven step-by-step framework for doing the inner work that is necessary for advancing social change. Examining yourself is key to supercharging your power to make the world a better place. In this essential guide, she weaves joy and well-being into the work of sustainable and transformational leadership.
Not just for nonprofit leaders, social workers, activists, educators, and health professionals, Impact with Integrity is for all of us inspired to do good and make effective change in the world.
