"The problem with teams and leaders isn't "motivation." It's "I'm motivated, I just want to know how to maximize that motivation effectively." No you can, because Erick shows you how. Want to lead better, communicate better, be better? Read this book, use its lessons. Erick "gets it" and you will to."
– Vincent E. Boles, Major General US Army (Ret) and author of "4-3-2-1 Leadership"
"I’ve known and worked with Erick for several years now. He’s an encourager and believes in people and the value they can bring into the world. I’ve personally watched him coach dozens of overwhelmed professional men and women and inspired them to leverage their stories so that they may have a positive impact in the world. I highly recommend you read this book, so Erick can do the same for you."
– Grant Baldwin, Founder & CEO of The Speaker Lab and author of "The Successful Speaker"
"As a US Army retired Colonel, I’ve heard my fair share of speakers. When my team turned me onto Erick a few years ago I was skeptical, but they all though he was one of the best speakers they’ve ever heard and were they ever right! Not only is he a great speaker, but he’s also a man of integrity, honor and character – all the things I work to instill in my team. I can think of no one better than Erick to speak to living a life of significance. Erick is an expert on this topic, and I highly recommend it."
– John Olshefski, Senior Vice President of Customer Care, Huntsville Utilities and Colonel US Army (Ret)
"Erick recounts his lifelong passion to study and understand human dynamics wonderfully in this book.

"Erick and I met over 30 years ago when we entered the United States Military Academy together as Plebes. He’s more than a friend, but a brother. We’ve shared a lifetime together and I’ve personally watched Erick’s life unfold and have been inspired by it and so will you."
