CMED Course – Leading from the second chair

24th September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

with Revd Charles Burgess

Some people will always be second chair leaders – those who serve with others in overall leadership. Others will be passing through to becoming the incumbent or some other first chair leader. Many in overall leadership will have those who lead with them. This day identifies some of the common issues for those in the second chair, explores how to work with those tensions but also realise the benefits, and offers a forum to share concerns and struggles.

Charles is a leadership specialist with CPAS. He has many years of practical leadership experience both from a career in the RAF and, in the last seven years, through his role with CPAS. CPAS currently work with over 20 dioceses in supporting them as they seek to build and strengthen a culture of collaborative leadership, including developing and enabling vision, changing culture, building teams and developing missional leadership. To this end, Charles facilitates various leadership development events across the UK, from individual days to longer-term programmes. He also mentors clergy in developing their leadership development skills.

Note: This event is a joint CMED/IME Phase 2 (curates) session.
