Leading from the Second Chair: Serving Your Church, Fulfilling Your Role, and Realizing Your Dreams (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series)

Leading from the Second Chair: Serving Your Church, Fulfilling Your Role, and Realizing Your Dreams (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series)

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 book 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.LEADING FROM THE SECOND CHAIR will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions.

Totally Barbados Web Site Wins World’s Leading Travel Destination Award for 2008


Bridgetown, Barbados (PRWEB) December 23, 2008

Barbados scored big at the 2008 World Travel Awards on December 2nd, 2008, with the local site Totally Barbados walking away with the prestigious trophy for the World’s Leading Travel Destination Website.

The who’s who of the world travel industry gathered in the Turks & Caicos Islands for the star-spangled presentation at which Totally Barbados Inc. owner and Managing Director, Brett Callaghan, received the award for his three-year-old company.

Totally Barbados beat seven International web sites representing Canada, the United States, Switzerland, South Africa, India, England and the Caribbean.

“Winning the World’s Leading Travel Destination Website award is a tremendous accomplishment for me, one that I wasn’t even sure was possible,” said Callaghan, a 34-year-old Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) who conceived and set up Totally Barbados.

“With the award in hand, it feels like all of the many long days and nights of work since 2005 in trying to build the best and most informative website promoting my country Barbados, have finally paid off,” he added.

Callaghan also thanked his staff of writers and account managers, as well as the advertisers and thousands of supporters who voted for Barbados.

This year Totally Barbados also won the award for the Leading Caribbean Travel Information Website for the second year running.

The World Travel Awards – described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry – encourage excellence and reward the brightest and the best in the International travel sector.

Graham E. Cooke, president and founder of World Travel Awards said the accolades “open up an important new corporate chapter in success and international creditability……”

“In addition to the inevitable prestige of winning one of the awards, there are real long term commercial benefits,” he added.

The 2008 awards were voted on by over 160,000 travel professionals and organizations from more than 160 countries.

Leading the Team-Based Church: How Pastors and Church Staffs Can Grow Together into a Powerful Fellowship of Leaders A Leadership Network Publication

Leading the Team-Based Church: How Pastors and Church Staffs Can Grow Together into a Powerful Fellowship of Leaders A Leadership Network Publication

A Leadership Network Publication

In Leading the Team-Based Church, George Cladis issues a clarion call for ministry teams to embrace a fresh leadership model that is not based on hierarchy, but on a process of collaboration that mirrors the relationship of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He reminds us that today’s cultural environment–where authority has basis in trust, innovation reaps rewards, and spirituality takes root in life and work–has matured past the need for the hierarchy of traditional church leadership where the pastor had the final say. Through down-to-earth stories from his own experience and those of clergy in both mainline and evangelical churches, Cladis offers an exciting alternative to the traditional forms of church leadership, enabling pastors, congregational leaders, and staff to breathe new life into their ministries and unleash the full potential of the entire ministry team.

Cladis, pastor of a fast-growing mainline congregation, demonstrates how cultural changes affecting all our institutions–not just the church–are making it easier to adopt this new model of leadership. Cladis’s practical advice will enable ministry teams to work together in ways that both embody the Christian message and call forth the full creativity and love of the entire team.

“Just when it seems that all that can be said has been said on the subject of ‘teams’, just when one has tired of the gumming of the label ‘team’ on everything in sight, along comes perhaps the most significant religious book on teams yet published. Cladis juxtaposes the theological and cultural context for team-based ministry in a model presentation of what a conversation between Bible, theology, and culture should look like.”–Leonard Sweet, dean, The Theological School and vice president, Drew University
