Spend Some Time at the Abbey with CEO August Turak

Perhaps the best review that I can offer of Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks by August Turak is to note that immediately after finishing the book I started reading it again.

The intertwined concepts of mission, community, and transformation form a blend that is often overlooked in our daily focus on mission, mission, mission. Turak, a CEO who went to Mepkin Abbey for years for spiritual renewal, reviews how the values of the Trappist monks can encourage us to aim beyond the target and make personal transformation an important part of our daily work.

Very thought-provoking. Check it out.

You are more than welcome. I am enjoying the second reading.

Thank you for doing such an excellent job with the book. There are numerous traps that can arise with a book of that nature and you avoided them all. The result is a very powerful message.

I hope it gains a large readership.
