A new book by Albert Lea author David Larson and business partner Kate Sholonski speaks to the challenges facing business owners and managers on how to reduce stress and increase profit in an ever-changing business world, according to a press release.

“Heartfelt Leadership: Creating a Culture of Connection,” Larson’s fourth book and second for co-author Sholonski, is a welcome support to those leaders wanting to bring out the best in their workers.

“Business Owners struggle with personnel issues related to turnover, negative attitudes and concern over employees’ lack of commitment to the company’s purpose. We put an end to that struggle,” said Larson. “Heartfelt leadership is leadership with heart. It’s recognizing that your employees are your most important resource, and knowing what they need to do their best job for you is essential.”

According to a Harvard research study, productivity goes up 31 percent when workers are happy as opposed to negative, neutral or stressed. Creating a more lucrative work environment requires more than just pushing employees to work harder. It’s about knowing how to foster and capitalize on their natural gifts for the organization, so serving the cause of the business becomes joyful and pleasurable.

Larson and Sholonski are offering two-day training locally April 16 and 17 that teaches some of the strategies they use to help businesses become more successful.
