(NewsUSA) - Carrie Fox takes to heart the role—and the responsibility—that leading communicators hold in shaping how stories are told, how narratives are shaped, and how decisions are made.

A nationally recognized leader in social impact communications and a champion for business as a force for good, Fox’s new book More Than Words: Communications Practices of Courageous Leaders is an invitation to join an emerging community of practice and become your own positive and powerful agent of change.

Carrie FoxYou see, communication is a powerful force for change. But the way we communicate dictates just how significant a change we can make: in our companies, our communities, and our world. This book is designed to help you realize your own power as a communicator through a more-than-words approach grounded in courage, care, and clarity.

“I’ve spent the last two decades guiding organizations and their leaders to be more authentic in their words, equitable in their strategies, and intentional about their impact,” says Fox, who is also founder and CEO of Mission Partners, a women-owned strategic communications firm and Certified B Corporation that guides high-potential nonprofits, foundations, and socially responsible corporations in realizing their greatest social impact.

With lessons and insights from some of the brightest minds in social impact communications and tools to help you practically apply these lessons to your work, More Than Words will meet you where you are in your quest to become a more authentic, inclusive, and connected communicator.

Readers will learn:

  • The four key communications practices of courageous leaders.
  • How to become a communicator for change.
  • An inclusive and equitable approach to communication.
  • How to build trust with your key constituents.
  • How to communicate in a way that leads to lasting and long-term positive change.

“Carrie Fox advises the reader to be a ‘radical listener’ to go beyond surface elements into much deeper discovery to build a trusted relationship with stakeholders for effective engagement and impactful action,” says Carol Cone, CEO, Carole Cone ON PURPOSE, and author of Breakthrough Nonprofit Branding.

More Than Words is “a deeply thoughtful book, full of practical wisdom, for anyone who seeks to communicate effectively to share ideas, build trust and create a better world,” adds David Bornstein, Author of How to Change the World and award-winning journalist, co-founder, Solutions Journalism Network.

Carrie Fox is also host and chief curator of the Mission Forward podcast, which delivers thought-provoking and perspective-shifting conversations on the power of communication. The award-winning program has featured Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, social impact leaders, and some of the nation’s most sought-after philanthropy leaders.
