Can entrepreneurs and business professionals commit themselves to socially responsible values and ethics while building profitable businesses? Jeff Klein, author of a new book called Working for Good: Making a Difference While Making a Living (Sounds True, September 2009) answers “yes” to that question, presenting a free interactive reading and workshop at East West Books on September 17. He will draw on the content from his how-to guidebook for becoming a conscious entrepreneur—one who addresses social issues while running a profitable business based on integrity and self-actualization.

Working for Good is a way of showing up for work, regardless of the organization’s structure or the products and services it produces. It is a philosophy, a way of conducting business and approaching work that orients readers on a path of personal growth, development, and service.

By cultivating the essential skills of Working for Good readers and participants will learn to unleash passion, shared purpose, great energy and deep engagement for themselves and the stakeholders in their business. Working for Good uses stories of successful conscious businesses to show that the approach does work. Participants and readers will learn how bring out the best in themselves and in others, increasing creativity, productivity, and sustainability.
