PALMYRA, Va., Dec. 11 /CSRwire/ - Maven House Press has changed its mission to focus on publishing books that inspire people to use business as a force for good – books that challenge conventional thinking, introduce new ideas, offer practical advice, and illuminate paths to greatness.

Maven House is soliciting manuscripts that cover any of the following (or related) themes: sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, B Corporations, social entrepreneurship, servant leadership, climate change, triple bottom line, green business, diversity and inclusion, transparency, social impact, workplace culture, or related topics. The books will be published in Fall 2019 or later.

“We were inspired to change our mission after publishing a book by Mona Amadeo (who owns a B Corp) called Beyond Sizzle: The Next Evolution of Branding,” says Jim Pennypacker, Publisher. The book offers leaders from organizations of all sizes and types a practical framework for transforming organizations into brands that are forces for good. “What we learned from the book motivated us to take our company in a new direction.”

Maven House has several new books signed up for 2019 that support their new mission, including Bravespace: Creating a Workplace Fit for Human Life by Moe Carrick (who also owns a B Corp) and Team Medicine: Coaching Your Team to Success with Native American Wisdom by Michelle Prosser (who works for a nonprofit).
