THRIVE: Strategies to Turn Uncertainty to Competitive Advantage.

It is the story of  nine leaders and organizations that have seen consistent growth through several economic crisis – companies that were founded in the late 1700’s to early 1900’s and they are still in business thriving today.

In this book we share their stories, their struggles, and tell you exactly how they have not only overcome adversity but thrived through it.
