Former Grupo Bimbo Executive, Visionary Food Industry Leader Releases Practical Guide to Cultivating Effective Leadership

DOYLESTOWN, Pennsylvania, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Leonard W. Heflich presents his recipe for fostering professional and 
personal success and balance in new book

A longtime innovator in the global food industry has released his accessible 
and engaging roadmap to becoming a truly impactful leader through the 
development of a personal and professional mission and vision and consistent 
reinforcement of strong values and clear communication.

In "Balanced Leadership: A Pragmatic Guide for Leading," author Leonard W. 
Heflich draws on his four-decades-plus career in the food industry and his own 
experience turning around a large, failing manufacturing facility to encourage 
readers to dream about the future they want. Ultimately, Heflich aims to 
provide his audience with the necessary tools to become flexible leaders who 
can strike a dynamic, changeable balance both in and out of the workplace.

"I started writing this book while I was taking trips every Sunday to visit my 
grandmother in a nursing home. During those trips, I often had plenty of hours 
to think, and inevitably my mind drifted to questions about leadership and what 
made leaders effective," Heflich said. "As the pieces of the puzzle started to 
materialize and come together, I tested my theories on the job and found that 
they worked. The ideas in this book helped me to succeed, and my hope is that 
this book will help you to be a more successful leader as well."

Peppered with bits of wisdom from leadership sages both fictional and real, 
"Balanced Leadership" delivers a frank, conversational and relatable approach 
to the benefits any person can reap by choosing to grow their leadership skill 
set and invites readers to move forward in pursuit of their personal and 
professional passions and goals.
