As a leader in the U.S. Coast Guard and now C-Suite business consultant, Craig Henzel has been on the front lines in many different situations. He has learned how important it is to act quickly to address and mitigate risks while remaining focused on the outcomes and mission completion.
In his upcoming new book, Leadership From The Front Lines, the author shares his experiences with readers who are looking to level up their leadership skills in this new normal environment. The book provides a roadmap to success, based on his 25+ years of front-line leadership experience, both military and civilian. Henzel will provide readers with a clear path to achieving effective leadership skills while developing ultra-high-performing teams. Net proceeds from the book will go towards solving veteran homelessness in the U.S. – a huge problem.
His book will be available on Amazon starting Monday, December 19, 2022. Those interested can grab a copy of his book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BPTHF5WL
According to Henzel, “In the last two years, more has changed than we’ve seen in nearly a decade. The typical workday has stretched into the evenings and weekends, with employees working from home or a coffee shop. For many, emotions are running higher as we consider social equality in our society today. These social changes and statuses dominate our consciousness. Leaders who want to lead effectively need a way of addressing the needs that have been revealed by today’s dynamic environment. These include giving employees what they crave – sincere and honest communications and regaining lost control over their lives.”
The author’s diverse functional experience and a myriad of military and corporate examples show readers how to remain positive, develop their people and gain the most from their diverse teams. As we jump headlong into 2023, these time-tested leadership principles seem even more relevant now.
Leadership From The Front Lines provides readers with much-needed insight into how they can lead in the current climate. It offers guidance on what steps to take in a crisis (perceived or real), and even helps with tackling more mundane challenges like getting teams motivated or dealing effectively with difficult colleagues.
Craig Henzel’s global leadership experience spans 3 decades, having risen to the rank of Captain in the U.S. Coast Guard before transitioning to the role of a corporate executive. He has a bachelor’s degree in management from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and a master’s degree in business from Boston University. He has taken that expertise into boardrooms across the Americas and Europe, driving tangible transformational change, most notably in senior executive positions at General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, AstraZeneca, Genpact, and Accenture.
