Social Snapshot: What people are saying in association social spaces
Highlights from ASAE's networks within the association world: Strategy, leadership and … animal cookies.
“Hope is not a strategy! In every business (reminder—assoc. need to think and act more like a business) there are leading indicators which are fairly consistent with the outcomes (whether desired or not). Figure out what those leading (vs. lagging) indicators are and influence them now. Don’t hope for increased attendance or participation down the road; influence their thinking and call to action now.” —David Nour, author of Return on Impact, in ASAE’s LinkedIn group
“Recent research indicates a strong correlation between successful board/CEO partnership function and the CEO devoting at least 20% of his/her time to board relationships, activities, etc. In other words, the board is integral to the CEO’s position description; that relationship shouldn’t be delegated or deferred.” —Michael Wyland, Sumption & Wyland, on ASAE’s Collaborate network
@rosettathurman: My new fave afternoon snack: frosted animal cookies. Pretty sure they’re all the same, but for some reason I’m partial to the white ones
@ericlanke: Daily haiku #1,335–Get up early and/get things done. It makes you feel/much more productive.
