“Leading in Chaos: Insights to Lead through the Storms”: an incredible compilation of true events that will lead the reader to ask: “why did she stay?” multiple times. “Leading in Chaos: Insights to Lead through the Storms” is the creation of published author I.J. Neal, a current senior partner and co-owner of Onyx Rising Financial Services. Her extraordinary management and strategic abilities were recognized early in her career in both government and Corporate America.

Neal shares, “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 workplace 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.'”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, I.J. Neal’s new book is an insightful and important manuscript that is sure to inspire managers and those who are in leadership positions of all types. “Leading in Chaos: Insights to Lead through the Storms” may serve as a guide to others who find themselves in extraordinarily difficult situations in the workplace.
