New York, NY (July 20, 2017) – Today, the Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership Press is pleased to announce the release of our first publication, The Agony of Decision: Mental Readiness and Leadership in a Crisis by Helio Fred Garcia. This is the first volume of Logos Institute Best Practice Series.
The Agony of Decision is about how leaders and the organizations they lead can maintain reputation, trust, confidence, financial and operational strength, and competitive advantage in a crisis.
“A wise man once said, the only meaningful way to escape the agony of decision is by thinking,” said Garcia, “that’s why I felt the necessity of writing this book — to help leaders think clearly, plan carefully, and execute effectively when facing high-stakes decisions.”
Through Garcia’s 30-plus years of professional involvement in thousands of crises affecting companies, governments, NGOs, and other organizations, he has discovered that the real value in resolving crises is not in excellent internal and external communication, nor in highest-quality tactical execution, however important they may be. Rather, the real value comes from helping clients figure out and answer the bigger questions and then make the tough choices in a timely way. The execution would follow. So would the communication.
This book is for leaders of organizations who need to be good stewards of reputation, trust, and competitive advantage; and for those who advise those leaders, whether in public relations, law, or other business disciplines. We hope you find it helpful.
The book is now available on Amazon for individual or bulk orders.
