The Power of Pull: How Small Moves, Smartly Made Can Set Big Things in Motion by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown, Lang Davison

“Passionate individuals are fleeing the institutional environs that constrain, rather than amplify, individual passion and creativity. They can no longer abide being a passive cog in a highly scripted and often stultifying corporate machine. But the flight from big institutions will be a temporary, transitional phenomenon if those institutions figure out how to pull rather than push and commensurately reimagine how they can organize themselves.”

 

Tales for Little Rebels edited by Julia Mickenberg.

This book features stories, comic strips, and primers from famous mid-century American authors, teaching children to question rather than obey authority, to stand up and out rather than conform, to develop critical thinking skills rather than seek redemption through prayer.
