About This Book
The situations in this book happened over three decades ago. Ironically, the events and management insights described in Leading in Chaos are even more relevant today! Managers from the front line to the boardroom may be dealing with fellow employees and colleagues in the grips of opioid addiction on a regular basis. Partisan politics has permeated every part of our lives, including the work place and navigating the political waters as a manager today truly takes conviction and fortitude. Further, bureaucracy still reigns supreme in our government agencies. Through true stories, Leading in Chaos covers these topics and many more.A quick and entertaining read, Leading in Chaos will make you realize that the mundane employee problems are manageable. The true events detailed provide a stark reminder that things could be worse. If you have not been sued by an employee union because you fired an employee who overdosed on heroin in the workplace found unconscious with the needle still in his arm, or been in a situation where an important and influential politician tries to publicly humiliate you for a justified disciplinary action of an employee, or been personally investigated based on an anonymous tip and stolen documentation provided by a disgruntled employee, you will come to admire the strength, faith, and management skills portrayed in Leading in Chaos.
