Thomas Guthrie is a retired US Army infantry officer who commanded units from company level to brigade, served as the chief of staff, 25th Infantry Division over twenty-eight years of service, and ended his career as the director of the Center for Army Leadership. He has published his new book “Leaders Create the Environment”: a compelling argument for the application of values imperative for success in the military environment in any corporate, athletic, or social organization.

Based on his 28 years of Army service in infantry units, Tom Guthrie suggests that leaders of any organization (military, business, sports, etc.) are responsible for creating the environment that enables the organization to succeed and the members in it are developed so that they have future success.

While many senior executives are capable of providing their organization a vision and even a strategy on how to get there, not many give that same amount of intellectual energy into what they want their organization to “feel” like; describing the environment that they know will get them to that vision. Tom Guthrie believes that the environment is a function of Organizational Values, the Climate, and the Culture and that the leader “owns” all of it.

E = f (Values + Climate + Culture)

This is not a theoretical, rub your chin in deep thought type of book. Tom uses personal and professional examples from his career to bring this idea to life and then offers a practical example of the environment he created while commanding hundreds and even thousands of Soldiers.
Published by Page Publishing, Thomas Guthrie’s engrossing book is an invaluable resource for leaders and managers in any corporate, military, or social environment.
Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Leaders Create the Environment” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
