Regardless of what industry someone works in, as leaders, we are all in the ‘People’ business – and that’s the message I want to drive home through ‘The Leadership Connection’.

Speaker and visionary business leader, Erik Therwanger, has released his practical and engaging roadmap to unlocking one’s true leadership potential. Twining the timeless lessons Therwanger learned through his service in the U.S. Marines with his experience as a business executive and successful entrepreneur, “The Leadership Connection: The Link Between Leading and Succeeding” takes a people-centric approach to leadership and shares with readers how they can foster meaningful and effective leadership, whether they are in a management role or not.

Therwanger’s book is divided into four parts, each of which details the four directives that lead to organizational excellence: enhanced perceptions, elevated priorities, empowered people and exceeded possibilities. Ultimately, “The Leadership Connection” presents relevant answers and solutions to the biggest challenges facing today’s leaders, such as communication, engagement, collaboration, delegation, accountability, teamwork and sharing vision.

“After leaving the United States Marine Corps and re-entering the civilian workforce, it quickly became clear to me that most businesses and organizations did not focus on developing their people to think and act as leaders,” Therwanger said. “Regardless of what industry someone works in, as leaders, we are all in the ‘People’ business – and that’s the message I want to drive home through ‘The Leadership Connection’.”

“I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to enhance their workplace and get their teams heading in the same direction,” a reader wrote in a five-star Amazon review of “The Leadership Connection”. “Through reading this book, and applying Erik’s principles, we were able to accomplish so much more as a team.”

Peppered with exercises readers can use to better define their purpose and focus in both their professional and personal lives, “The Leadership Connection” recognizes the importance of developing leaders at all levels of a workplace in order to create a foundation of leadership throughout the organization as a whole and grow an impactful and engaging culture.
