Leadership consultant and president of Tacoma-based Hjelseth & Associates LLC, Ross Hjelseth, recently released his debut book, Winning Words: Speaking Life to Influence Others.

The book looks to guide readers to improve their ability to positively impact and influence the people around them. Hjelseth based much of the content on his 35-year-long career as a coach and leader.

“Most of our current culture includes a focus on negative. My book is the opposite — overcoming negative with positive,” Hjelseth said in a release. “It is written with a lifetime of a leader’s learning included in the content. There are a significant amount of life lessons to be learned from the book. While we are living, life happens, and this book is all about living a quality life to influence others.” WestBow Press | $14.95
