The Board Leadership Crisis

In an incredibly inspiring and challenging conversation with Elisa Pratt, self-proclaimed association nerd, and expert in strategic non-profit solutions, we discuss the board leadership crisis experienced by associations as they cope with the COVID crisis, how we can engage meaningfully with members as well as new ways to think about strategic planning for associations.
 
If I sound agreeable in these podcasts, it is because I am! Elisa’s insights about how we should be conversing over communicating, and how we should look at new metrics instead of old headcounts, really speaks to the values of how association colleagues of mine are talking about the ways our association bodies can be communities offering new value to more than just our members.
“The past is our comfort zone” says Elisa and we need to find ways to use narrative or strategic visioning to intentionally create the future we desire for our organisations.
 
Please listen in to this podcast, as well as the interview that Elisa and her colleague did with myself, Tes Proos and Kevan Jones from the SA Events Council.
 
Elisa has a podcast and board training material on her site, Associations Transformation.
