Publisher's Summary

A high-impact leadership coach gives you the tools you need to maximize your influence in a new role, giving you the ability to meet any challenge and take your team, organization, church, or company to new heights.

“A practical path to maximizing your influence, navigating transitions, and producing positive results.” (Jon Gordon, 10-time best-selling author of The Power of Positive Leadership)

Sure, it’s inspirational when we hear stories about those who founded companies from their garages with 100 dollars cash while in high school. But such success is super rare and not always how it plays out for great leaders.

The reality is that most leaders are responsible for corporations, teams, and products they didn’t launch from the ground up. Tyler Reagin saw the immense need to address this mission-critical but often overlooked aspect of leadership: healthy transition for leaders who inherit teams, places, or platforms others created.

His groundbreaking book Leading Things You Didn’t Start provides a faith-based four-step plan that answers practical questions such as:

  • Do I really want to take over something loved by so many?
  • Is there a secret sauce to doing what the leaders before me did?
  • How do I get the current team on board with my leadership?
  • How do I honor the past without being trapped by it?
  • How do I steward the legacy of the leaders who started the movement?

Through the use of tried-and-true coaching principles and practical case studies with leaders like Buzz Williams, head coach at Texas A&M, and Cheryl Bachelder, former CEO of Popeyes, Reagin helps you maximize your newfound influx of influence and master the intentions of an inheriting leader.

Critic Reviews

“Many leaders find themselves in the challenging position of having to build on the success (or failure) of a predecessor, and it can be daunting. In Leading Things You Didn’t Start, Tyler draws on his own experience to equip leaders to thrive. It is a must-read!” (Nona Jones, business leader, pastor, speaker, and best-selling author of Success from the Inside Out and From Social Media to Social Ministry)

 “Every leader must read Leading Things You Didn’t Start. While some have the chance to build from the ground up, most leaders find themselves inheriting organizations they didn’t start. My good friend Tyler Reagin will give you the tools you need to make healthy transitions, maximize your influence, and become great at leading things you didn’t create!” (DeVon Franklin, Hollywood producer and New York Times best-selling author) 

“For years, I’ve appreciated the leadership of Tyler Reagin as he has taught me to be a better person, friend, and leader to the people around me. What a privilege for any reader who gets to absorb Tyler’s wisdom throughout this book. His words are seasoned with years of lived experience and will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to propel yourself forward into all the new things God has for you.” (Hannah Brencher, author of Fighting Forward and Come Matter Here

Simple, known concepts applied in a powerful way

Tyler takes simple concepts and applies them to leadership and business in ways that I hadn't heard before. Eye-opening and potentially game-changing if applied.
