Learn how to make decisions in the face of increasingly complex and multifaceted challenges

In A Symphony of Choices: How Mentorship Taught a Manager Decision-Making, Project Management and Workplace Engagement — and Saved a Concert Season, workplace culture and strategy expert Gerald Leonard delivers a fascinating narrative following one Jerry Hall, the new Symphony Orchestra manager at a prestigious symphony concerned about the challenging plans for an upcoming season. In the book, you’ll watch Jerry connect with a former college professor and learn the skills necessary to successfully manage his way through these unprecedented times in his business and personal life.

Does he have all skills necessary for effective decision-making and managing a major symphony’s portfolio of projects? Will his fear of succumbing to daunting challenges prevent him from succeeding? The author answers these questions, and more.
You’ll also find:

  • Hands-on strategies for decision-making and management you can implement today at your organization
  • Methods for navigating an increasingly complex and interconnected environment
  • Ways to apply subject-matter knowledge to your management even in the face of extraordinary personal challenges

A necessary and hands-on resource for directors, managers, executives, and other business leaders, A Symphony of Choices will also earn a place on the bookshelves of practicing and aspiring leaders in athletic, academic, military, and other environments.

Coming Soon 8/1/23; Available in print, digital and audiobook format:

“Gerald’s A Symphony of Choices definitely strikes a chord for those of us struggling to manage our customers, our bosses, our teams, and the omnipresent “unknowns.”  He takes a realistic perspective on coping with the real-world challenges that make up the juggling of expectations, time, money, and personalities.  The orchestral analogy provides a simple common context that affords even the novice an opportunity to see how portfolio management can be done while at the same time providing insight for the veteran practitioner.”

In the Project Economy, We Are All Project Managers

For centuries, learning was achieved by memorizing hefty books and mountains of written material. Today, the leading educational systems, starting from an early age, apply the concept of teaching projects. Applying theories and experimenting through projects has proven to be a much better learning method, and soon it will become the norm. – Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez
