Author and educator Alex Budak talks about his brilliant new book, Becoming a Changemaker: An Actionable, Inclusive Guide to Leading Positive Change at Any Level and how you can transform your life.
Alex Budak is a social entrepreneur and a professional faculty member at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, where he created and teaches the transformative course, “Becoming a Changemaker.” He previously co‐founded StartSomeGood and held leadership positions at Reach for Change and Change.org. He teaches, speaks, consults, and advises organizations around the world, with the mission of helping people from all walks of life become changemakers.
Budak is driven by the belief that anyone—regardless of title, personality, race, gender, age, or class—can be a changemaker. This inclusive vision of leadership is the beating heart of the “Becoming a Changemaker” course, and is the driving force for the book as well. Tailored to the millennial / Gen Z set who are exiting school and entering the workforce, this book makes the lessons, insights, examples and excitement from class accessible to all.
