Lessons from the Second Chair

Unpolished Conference 2015


Everyone can't be the top dog. Someone has to fill the role of second-in-command. In this 32-minute session from the 2015 Unpolished Conference, Chuck Mingo discusses the value that the role of second-chair has in leadership. He offers advice on how to best lead from second place.

Chuck is the Campus Pastor of the Oakley campus of Crossroads—a church in Cincinnati, Ohio. Prior to serving Crossroads, Chuck worked with Procter & Gamble first as a sales representative and quickly worked his way up to US Category Manager.
