Successful Community Leadership and Organization: A Skills Guide for Volunteers and Professionals, 2nd Edition updates John E. Tropman's 1997 edition and adds more detail, including introductory chapters on the idea of community itself. The book addresses the common concerns and problems of local community leaders and organizers and provides an easy-to-use set of skills and techniques that will enable leaders to implement best practices in their community work.
Organization and leadership within the community are essential, and this practical guide will help individuals become more involved in community leadership. The second edition is divided into four sections:
- Essential Elements of Community Organization: Helping Communities Toward Positive Change
- Taking Leadership in Community Groups
- Conducting Effective Community Group Meetings
- The Rewards of Community Leadership
Successful Community Leadership and Organization primarily focuses on leading community meetings and arriving at high-quality community decisions. The techniques in this practical guide will help community leaders, organizers, and groups at work, church, or school elevate their processes to the high end of the quality continuum.
