“The Answer to a Polarized America”: Jack Stack, Author of Best-Selling ‘The Great Game of Business’ Set to Release a New Book on “the Brighter Side of Capitalism”

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 18, 2019

Capitalism in its traditional form is under attack. Solutions from both sides are extreme and unsustainable. But there is a revolution going on in business; a movement that is teaching the have-nots how the haves make it. It’s about creating and distributing wealth equitably as a way to close those gaps in prosperity that plague our society. It’s about changing the game.

As a follow up to his 1993 best-selling book The Great Game of Business, which chronicles the dramatic come-back story of SRC and the origins of "open-book management," Jack Stack and co-author Darren Dahl write about "the brighter side of capitalism" in Change the Game.

Stack and Bo Burlingham wrote The Great Game of Business to detail the leadership system of the same name that developed out of necessity in the early days of SRC; the new book provides a "proof of concept" that the Great Game system really works. Change The Game is filled with case studies of businesses in all sectors that have seen the positive effects of SRC's brand of open-book management – a system that shares financial information with employees at all levels, teaches them how they fit in to the overall performance of the company, and makes work fun and rewarding for everyone who plays, from the president down to the janitor.

Highlighting stories of the organizations and individuals who have been transformed by The Great Game of Business, Change the Game demonstrates that business truly is the catalyst for lasting change. "Businesses have the potential to make a positive difference in the world," says Stack, CEO of Missouri-based SRC. "They have a tremendous opportunity to empower people to pursue their dreams – and that benefits our society as a whole."

Stack will share key concepts from the book when he keynotes at the 27th Annual Gathering of Games, September 4-6 at the Hilton Anatole Dallas. The Gathering, the world's largest conference on open-book management, brings together over 700 business leaders and key influencers from companies of all sizes and industries from around the world. Named one of “7 ‘Can’t Miss’ Conferences for Entrepreneurs” by Forbes, the event features educational sessions, networking opportunities, and insights from business leaders practicing open-book, management experts and Great Game of Business implementation coaches. The conference will close with a keynote from serial entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author Kevin Kruse. Conference participants will receive a copy of Stack's Change the Game, as well as Kruse's 'Great Leaders Have No Rules,' released April 2019.

TPN Exhibit Showcases Evidence-Based Parenting Inside Out Curriculum

PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ – The Pathfinder Network is exhibiting at the American Parole and Probation Association Training Institute from August 18-21, 2019 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California. The organization’s exhibit features Parenting Inside Out (PIO), its evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral parenting skills training program for incarcerated parents, and will be located in the main exhibit hall at Booth #216.

“The Pathfinder Network is excited to share PIO with the network of community corrections, juvenile justice, and treatment professionals at the APPA Training Institute,” said Parenting Inside Out Program Manager Richard Hines-Norwood. “Our long standing collaboration and strong relationships with these partners allow us to support families and keep communities safe.”

PIO is an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral parenting skills training program based on the Oregon Social Learning Center’s Parent Management Training (PMT) program for at-risk families, which appears on numerous national-level best practice lists. PIO has been reviewed by SAMHSA and is the only parenting program for incarcerated and criminal justice involved parents on its National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). Results of the randomized controlled study of 359 incarcerated mothers and fathers conducted during the development of PIO revealed that at one-year post release, PIO participants had a 34% reduction in recidivism and a 29% reduction in self-reported criminal behavior. During incarceration, the PIO group reported more positive parent-child contact and received more total family visits than the control group.

The PIO program addresses the unique situation and issues that parents with criminal justice system involvement face and provides a new way of navigating life, utilizing healthy, prosocial skills to interact with their children, partners, co-parents, officials, friends and family. This program includes lessons and information on the following topics: communication and problem solving, child development, structure and guidance, family relationships and connecting from prison, co-parenting, and reentry. PIO has been successfully implemented in both men’s and women’s prisons, county jails, treatment centers and community programs in 32 states, Australia and Canada.

The Pathfinder Network is a 501 (c) (3) social service agency founded in 1993 with a mission to provide justice system-impacted individuals and families the tools and support they need to be safe and thrive in their communities. The Pathfinder Network provides cognitive-behavioral programs, parenting programs, education and support services for pro-social living to adults in the Oregon prison system and to children and families in the community.

Formerly known as the Isagenix Legacy Foundation, the ISA Foundation has now given grants totaling more than $1.8 million to 51 recipients based in the United States since its launch in 2018.

The 40 new grants were awarded to nonprofits that align with the ISA Foundation’s mission to provide healthy nutrition and support for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters.
