More than a leadership book full of useful tools, Creating Your Management Opus is a guide to mentorship. This book is for all managers and leaders, or those who aspire to become leaders. Whether you lead the local Cub Scouts troop, your community soccer team, a church committee, or in the context of a nonsocial organization, the tools described in the following pages will be valuable and rewarding. Creating Your Management Opus uses an analogy of the symphonic conductor as an ideal example of an effective manager. The conductor displays the necessary techniques and tools a manager should strive to understand and employ.
