I have been in the senior leadership role for almost 30 years now. My goal was always to try to find the very best leaders I could find to add to our team. That meant sometimes adding people who could do my job as well as me – and many times better.
People have often asked me if I could ever sit in a second-chair leadership position again. Great question. I will share more about that in a future post/podcast, but the answer is definitely yes! But there are a few things which would have to be in place in order for me to be comfortable doing so.
Nate and I talk about some of those in this episode of The Ron Edmondson Leadership Podcast. Attracting first chair leaders requires a certain culture. The first chair leader plays a big role in making this possible. Join us for this important conversation.
And if you are a second chair leader, feel free to chime in with the comments on this post of what it takes for you to remain in your position. If you are a first chair leader, consider if you are creating the kind of environment that attracts first chair leaders.
Would you do me a favor? It would be great if you would subscribe, share and leave a positive review about this podcast. It will help get the word out about it. Thank you in advance for doing so.
