If you haven't yet, certainly try talking to her, ask her what her objectives and goals are for the guild, and how she wants to accomplish them. ASK her if she really wants to guild lead, in a primary all-inclusive way, or maybe only lead a particular aspect of the guild, or maybe she really just wants to be in the guild in a lesser capacity. If you ask without judgement, without leading the conversation, you should be able to learn how much she is honestly prepared to give.
It's possible she will not be a true co-gm. You should be prepared to change the basic structure of the guild...perhaps instead of a co-gm, you might have 2 or 3 guildies who have shown strong leadership take over specific areas.....the bank, raid lead/mentor, pvp lead, recruitment... there are several good roles for the position directly under gm. Perhaps she would prefer to take over one or 2 areas of leadership, rather than an over-all umbrella position such as the term co-gm suggests.
I'm assuming that the guild you're posting from is NOT the guild in question, and am envisioning a larger guild.
You are the gm, and need to set the tone and path for the guild. You do NOT need to be the sole leader. But, you also cannot force another to lead in your stead, it simply won't work.
Thank you for the advice. I will try to talk to her and see what we need to work out. I do see the leadership potential in her, it's just hidden.
And yes, I'm posting on an alt in a different guild just for anonymity. I'd hate for someone in the guild to read this and start something.
