"The one-of-a-kind "Creating Good Work" offers those of us interested in 'deliberately disruptive design' inspiration, and wisdom from the most potent leaders of our time.

It will inform my thinking about what REDF is trying to do now, and our practice for years to come.

You have done an incredible service by compiling in one place practical lessons and a framework for everyone engaged in a lifelong study of how to improve our world".

- Carla Javits – President, REDF (Roberts Enterprise Development Fund)


"Creating Good Work” focuses on “social innovation“, which is the third largest pillar of innovation within our society.

Our ability to create good work in the social innovation sphere will be the absolute decisive challenge for our next generation.

This is especially true in terms of building our future economies. The only resource that will really count will be: how well will people be able to develop their own capabilities?

With this wonderful book, Ron Schultz provides a practical and pioneering work on this subject."

- Peter Spiegel – Head of Institute, Genesis Institute for Social Innovation and Impact Strategies, Berlin, Germany


“Ron Schultz has done a great job of compiling and illuminating an A to Z read that encompasses theory, application and practice, peppered with lots of pragmatic advice.

"Creating Good Work" provides a needed pathway that leads us from thought to essential action as it helps readers explore and develop transformative ways to influence social change.

It's an informative and important read for all who are interested in finding a new way forward.”

- Beverly Schwartz, author of "Rippling: How Social Entrepreneurs Spread Innovation Throughout the World", and VP Global Marketing, Ashoka.


“Creating Good Work is a must read for any student considering a meaningful, purpose-driven career in business. Why live your life any other way?”

- Steve Mariotti – Founder NFTE – National Federation for Teaching Entrepreneurship


Creating Good Work is a practical resource that goes beyond storytelling. It is a rich guide book produced by some of the most successful social entrepreneurs in the world, today.

The lessons these leaders share in this volume are a treasure trove for any social entrepreneur looking for new and innovative ways to shift the societal challenges they encounter and create a positive impact on the world that presents itself.

This is true whether the social entrepreneur is in their initial concept phase, has already launched a successful venture and is looking to expand its sphere of influence, or is a student just considering that being a social entrepreneur fulfills their vision of what it means to lead a meaningful and purposeful life.

Ron Schultz is the founder and Executive Director of the microfinance/micro-enterprise lending program, Entrepreneurs4Change, the Social Enterprise Zone, and Lending4Change, providing entrepreneurial education as well as a neighbor-to-neighbor lending program for social businesses. He is the author of over twenty books, including Adjacent Opportunities—Sparking Emergent Social Action, Unconventional Wisdom, and Open Boundaries: Creating Business Innovation through Complexity.
