When we last spoke with August Turak, he'd just written his thoughts about concepts he learned from visits with Trappist Monks in South Carolina in a Forbes.com article. He laid out several "secrets" of the monks' practices that are centered on service and selflessness that could be used to make businesses better at what they do. Since then, he's written an entire book on the concept and has shared additional inspiring stories of the monks. Mr. Turak lays out how businesses could learn from the Trappist Monks' practices, and he joins us again to talk about bringing values and principles back into business, when Charlotte Talks.
