Berrett-Koehler is an independent publisher dedicated to an ambitious mission: Creating a World that Works for All.
Berrett-Koehler believe that to truly create a better world, action is needed at all levels--individual, organizational, and societal. At the individual level, their books help people align their lives with their values and with their aspirations for a better world. At the organizational level, they promote progressive leadership and management practices, socially responsible approaches to business, and humane and effective organizations. At the societal level, they advance social and economic justice, shared prosperity, sustainability, and new solutions to national and global issues.
A major theme of their books is "Opening Up New Space." They challenge conventional 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.
Berrett-Koehler strives to practice what they preach, operating in line with the ideas in the books. At the core of this approach is stewardship defined as a deep sense of responsibility to administer the company for the benefit of all of our "stakeholder" groups: authors, customers, employees, investors, service providers, and the communities and the environment.
