Can eating lunch with your employees make or break your company?

In her first book, Lunch with Lucy, entrepreneur, author, and CEO Sherry Deutschmann tells her story and how she put her employees first by means of a program she set up called Lunch with Lucy. She used the name “Lucy”—a fake name for herself —to make employees feel less intimated about inviting the CEO out to lunch.

Any employee, at any level, could invite her out on any Wednesday (with the tab picked up by the company) so they could openly share any concerns or topics relevant to their personal lives or to her company, LetterLogic. She credits this approach and her employees’ honesty and commitment with the massive $40-million success of her business.

Chapters are cleverly laid out like courses on a restaurant menu, and the author uses this construct to show how she used empathy and open leadership to transform her employees lives and her company, one lunch at a time.

This book will engage entrepreneurs and wannabee entrepreneurs of all ages and genders as this thought-leader-in-the-making shows how she was successful not in spite of her unorthodox leadership—but because of it.
