Finding (or Creating) Your Second In Command

Online event

Hello Organizers, Let's gather get together and talk about what it means to find (or cultivate) a second in command. At the moment, you may be doing it all - and that is exhausting. Or, you may be at the end of your enthusiasm, and looking for someone to take over when you're done? Or, perhaps you have enthusiastic helpers, but no one seems ready to make the leap to being your right hand (wo)man? Do you have a successful second in command already? Be a part of the conversation and share your experience and insights. Join us, and discuss: - What do you actually need help with? Do you have a clear vision of what a second in command would do? - Do you already have people that are almost, but not quite, the helper you need? How do you encourage them to take that last step? - As much as it's about you getting help, it's also about what they get out of the arrangement; how are you benefiting your potential second in command?
