Whether it is a Fortune 500 company or a brick-and-mortar small business, running a company is no cakewalk. For both new and experienced business owners, a mentor is an invaluable tool and lifelong friend, but they aren’t easy to find. Luckily, author Erik Therwanger has stepped up to the plate as a virtual mentor, helping you make leadership connections and build customer relationships for dynamic sales.
Here are some of Erik Therwanger’s most essential works to help you take your business to the next level:
The Leadership Connection: The Link Between Leading and Succeeding
Unlike some business mentorship books that teach readers to subtly manipulate those around them in order to succeed, The Leadership Connection focuses on building leadership from within and leading by example. Using the 3 Pillars of Greatness (build, strengthen, and expand) business owners, executives, and managers can make meaningful and lasting connections with colleagues, customers, and other business leaders.
The Leadership Connection has stellar reviews from readers, who claim that the book is “life changing” and a “must read.” Since a business is only as good as its leadership, small business owners can certainly learn a thing or two from The Leadership Connection.
Elevate: Take Your Business to The Next Level
Elevate: Take Your Business to The Next Level is for business owners who are tired of mediocrity and are ready to make their business a stand-out success. Using the Business Elevation System, or BES, Therwanger teaches business owners how to stop “winging it” and create a solid, step-by-step plan to take your business to the next level.
Addressing everything from unmotivated employees to poor accounting decisions, Elevate is the perfect educational meets inspirational business book to help companies beat the small business survival rate statistics.
Dynamic Sales Combustion: Creating the Engine for Transformational Sales Results
Making sales is far more difficult than just perfecting a handshake. Erik Therwanger’s Dynamic Sales Combustion is aimed at small businesses that are struggling in the sales department, addressing the many sales-based issues that arise using the Sales Impact System, or SIS. Using SIS, teams can uncover new strategies to attain a winning mindset, techniques for uncovering valuable contact data, and how to build connections between customers and employees.
If your small business has reached a sales plateau, Dynamic Sales Combustion: Creating the Engine for Transformational Sales Results can give you the tools to get your sales off the ground.
Each of these three books can small business owners solve important problems. Try them on Kindle or paperback if you’re looking for new ways to improve your leadership skills, accelerate sales, and take your business to the next level.
