About this title


At a lunch with the CEOs of Clif Bar and Triage Consulting Group, Gary Erickson and Patti Lee-Hoffmann compared notes about the financial health of their companies. Both of their industries (specialty food and consulting) were suffering during the Great Recession, but it turned out that the two companies had just wrapped up record-breaking years. They wondered if there were other companies like theirs, engaged in industries hard hit by the downturn, but were nonetheless thriving. Over the next 12 months, Lee-Hoffmann traveled across America to search for those successful companies and learn what they all had in common. Through interviews with board chairmen to line staff, she found 11 companies, all engaged in different industries -- from advertising to construction and from women's clothing to outdoor furniture. She learned that great companies sell products that come with intense, often personal, service. Their egoless leaders encourage their people to lead, take risks and challenge the status quo. These leaders tell the truth, no matter how painful, and communicate freely and fully with their people and customers. Great companies are valued community institutions and their concern for the environment is a deeply held value. It turns out that these and other common traits are the very things that provide financial support to them regardless of the state of the economy.

Store Description

Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
