Books are efficient and cost effective learning tools. They are my go-to source for inspiration and information in my endeavors. Here are four books that currently inform my journey in developing Creative On Purpose.

Manifesto for a Moral Revolution: Practices to Build a Better World, by Jacqueline Novogratz

Drawing on inspiring stories from change-makers around the world and on memories of her own most difficult experiences, Jacqueline divulges the most common leadership mistakes and the mind-sets needed to rise above them.

Community: The Structure of Belonging, by Peter Block

Block explores examples revealing that community building is a powerful way to address social problems. A way of thinking that creates an opening for authentic communities to exist and details what each of us can do to make that happen.

The Creativity Leap: Unleash Curiosity, Improvisation, and Intuition at Work, Natalie Nixon

Combining creativity tools and techniques with real-world stories, Nixon provokes, inspires, and invites us to unleash our innate creativity. She offers a dynamic, integrative way to adapt and innovate, allowing us to access our full human selves.

The Moral Animal: Why We Are the Way We Are, Robert Wright

One of the most provocative science books in recent years. Wright unveils the genetic strategies behind everything from our sexual preferences to our office politics--as well as their implications for our moral codes and public policies.

These four books, more than any other of the dozens I've recently read, have had the biggest impact on my journey in building the Creative On Purpose brand and developing and delivering on its promise to help others fly higher in endeavors that make a difference. You can find them and other helpful resources in the Creative On Purpose Bookstore.

Let's keep flying higher together!
