New Book Presents Professional Leadership Principles Containing Real-World Advice in Action as a Roadmap for Avoiding Career Hazards
ALPINE, Utah, Feb. 12, 2024
Experienced authors share lessons, values and concepts for managers to encourage success
ALPINE, Utah, Feb. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Author and businessman Ronald Harris has applied 50 years of leadership experience to offer career-enhancing wisdom on transitioning supervision theory into practical on-the-job utilization.
In his book "Concepts of Managing," Harris presents easy-to-understand leadership principals supported by case studies. These principles cover topics such as career navigation, leadership and management, motivation, relationships and ethics.
While teaching a class on supervision as an adjunct professor for Penn State, Harris realized the textbook hadn't covered many real-world pragmatic topics that his students would likely encounter. Using these as the basis for his book, he offers realistic portrayals of situations to assist readers in anticipating scenarios and thoughtfully approach challenges. Armed with this real-world wisdom, managers can navigate circumstances in order to empower career success.
"This is a terrific resource to give newly-hired trainees or members of your managerial and supervisory staff," said Harris. "Likewise, it's excellent required supplemental reading for students studying Business or Human Resources."
Harris recently retired as VP of Real Estate, Facilities & Construction at Young Living Essential Oils, having also served as their Chief Logistics Officer. During his tenure, Young Living grew in annual sales from $60M to $2.2B, and he assembled and oversaw the team constructing the 263,000-SF global headquarters, winning seven honors. He has also worked for seven other firms, with sales ranging from $90M to $3B, and four with holdings equaling/exceeding these figures.
"There are no silver bullets that transform an individual into a respected and successful leader," said Harris. "Rather, there are many values and concepts that must be first understood and applied to earn that credibility."
