In 2003, Eric Swenson quit his job and wrote a book about management and leadership based on his seventeen years of experience working for two large corporations. Now, sev­enteen years later, he has updated the book with stories and anecdotes from his experience running his own business and working with hundreds of business owners and C-suite exec­utives.

Despite the many changes in technology and business over the past generation, the hall­marks of great leaders have remained the same. Eric’s core principles of leadership are rele­vant for managers of people in any generation, business, industry, or role.

Managing People is a book written by a manager for managers and packed with practical, ev­eryday advice that anyone can learn and adapt to their own teams. This is not high-level theory but rather in-the-trenches knowledge from someone who has been there and done that — as a manager, as a strategic advisor, and as a business owner.
