Randy Lewis bet his career that he could create an inclusive workplace at one of America’s biggest corporations―a place where people with disabilities could not just succeed but thrive. No Greatness without Goodness is the powerful story of a corporate executive who, after watching the world through the eyes of Austin, his own child with autism, realized that we all have a greater responsibility to make the world a better place for everyone, including those with disabilities.

As the senior vice president of Walgreens, Randy Lewis created thousands of full-time jobs for people with disabilities. No Greatness without Goodness offers a firsthand account of what it takes to lead with courage in order to change people’s lives for the better. Randy’s motto is “What’s the use of having power if you don’t use it to do good?” In this book, you’ll learn how to start working for good, no matter where you are or how much power you hold.

From the Back Cover:

A powerful story about the courage to create a better world
No Greatness with-out Goodness is the story of a senior vice president at Walgreens who bet his career on making the world a better place for people with disabilities. When Randy Lewis’s son, Austin, was three years old, Randy and his wife received a sobering diagnosis: their son had a debilitating form of autism. As Randy learned to see the world through his son’s eyes, something dawned on him. He knew deep down that many people with disabilities could hold jobs and even perform better than the average worker, if only they were given a chance. What he didn’t know was that he would be their only chance.

Read this and do good.

From the inside flap:
I had practiced my speech over and over, but I was still nervous as I climbed the stairs to the stage in the middle of the Paris Las Vegas ballroom. Surrounded by an audience of five thou-sand Walgreens store managers, I said that we were about to undertake something that had never been done before―anywhere. We were planning to build the most efficient distribution cen-ter of its kind in the world.

And we were going to staff one-third of the workforce with people who have disabilities, many of whom had never been offered a job. People with mental dis-abilities such as autism and cognitive delays. People with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, spinal cord injuries, and missing limbs. We were going to pay them the same as people without disabilities, have them perform the same jobs, and hold them to the same standards. We would offer full benefits and full-time employment, taking hundreds of people off welfare rolls.

As I prepared to tell the five thousand store managers how we were going to do all this, the huge screens surrounding the stage filled with a picture of my family. That’s be-cause my family is where the story began.

You’ll be inspired by this incredible sto-ry of a father who was committed to making the world a better place. No matter where you are or how much power you hold, you, too, can start working for good.

The next generation is waiting for you to act.
