The Monk and the CEO: A Father/Son Dialogue
monk_ceo_logo_5_8inches copy





In The Monk and the CEO: A Father-Son Dialogue on Life, Love, and Work I explore some of the dynamics of a father-son relationship with my father, Bob Epperly, former CEO of Fuel Tech. Together, we discuss life from the the “consciousness-first” perspective of the monk, and the systems perspective of the CEO. We consider the gifts and limitations of each perspective and wrestle with the overwhelming nature of today’s challenges. We discuss our relationship, the high points and low points, and our unfolding towards a mature father-son relationship.
