“The Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks,” by August Turak, has been an unconventional business best seller. What makes the Trappist Monks successful? The short answer is the monks discovered an amazing secret—“It is in our own self-interest to forget our self-interest.” Just like every business, a Trappist monastery must be self-sufficient. Trappists are world famous for many products, from cheese to wool to, most famously, beer. If they do not sell their goods, they do not eat. The Trappists have learned the hard way many lessons that are effective for every business; honing their business skills for 350 years. We discuss key lessons applicable to any business.
