Summary

Leading from the Second Chair will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions. It will describe the value they can bring to their organization and to primary leaders when they are serving at their full potential. It will reshape the way they view their role, with an emphasis on their own responsibility as leaders. It recognizes the unique challenges and frustrations of serving in a subordinate position and equips these leaders with the attitudes and skills that they will need to survive and thrive in this new paradigm.

Because of the scarcity of resources for second chair leaders, particularly those in the church, this audiobook will offer a practical way to improve the performance of any organization. Leading Congregational Change discussed the importance of a "vision community" - a diverse group of key members who discern and implement the vision for a congregation - to guide the transformation of a church. This work will extend the theme of an empowered leadership team as we explore how individual clergy and laity can lead effectively.

ok

good but repetitive and reader didn't sufficiently intimate new sections so it was difficult to follow.

Must read for all ministry leaders!

Usually, there is only one "first chair leader" in any given organization. That means most "leaders" are playing the "second-chair" role. Bone and Hawkins have done the Kingdom a great service by writing such a readable and helpful book. They draw on experiences not only they have gone through but those of other prominent "second-chair" leaders to give the Church a valuable book!

Not the first chair? This is for you!

This gave many great ideas about leading even when you're not the primary leader and how to leave well when the time presents itself and God calls you (and your family) elsewhere.
