An unimaginable tragedy suddenly and unexpectedly placed Jim Rafferty in a demanding volunteer leadership role as Scoutmaster of a local Boy Scout troop. The story of how that shattered organization picked up the pieces and not only survived but thrived forms the basis of Leader by Accident.

Just as suddenly let go a few years later from the job he’d held for more than two decades, Jim came to realize that the challenges and lessons he’d encountered as a youth leader had applications far beyond scouting. He used those experiences to fuel a successful journey into entrepreneurship. As a Scoutmaster, Jim imparted dozens of bite-sized chunks of inspiration and life advice to the young men of the troop. Leader by Accident transforms those lessons into life advice for business leaders.
