Visionary Leadership® Academy
A power course for association managers and C-level executives. As an association manager, do you know what skills you’re missing to get from where you are now to a C-level position at your association?
If you look around, there is an illusion that everything is stable. You might not know it, but there is currently a revolution that is rocking the world of business. Agile is a leadership and management protocol that grew itself in back rooms of software development. It's not about speeding up and squeezing more. It's a new way of management and leading. It's about new ways of work that create new kinds of value. I encourage you to look at this new world. The transformation of this new mindset is one that is significant. Stay tuned for highlights of my work with associations in Washington, DC who are adopting Agile practices and see how it is helping organizations create more value in today's changing world and transforming the business processes they use.
My work is about helping visionaries achieve success. In this short video I share a story from my days working with the president of the World Bank, Jim Wolfensohn, a true visionary. This work centered on empowering the poor and helped me define the elements of a successful Performance Community, which I still use today (more can be found in my bestseller, Getting Change Right).
I spent the morning today with the author of the book, Influence: the Psychology of Persuasion. In this short video I share Cialdini's method of creating the intellectual property, which made this book a classic in the field. Cialdini's book documents the six types of influence and has been a reference for marketers and leaders who rely on influence to excel at their work.
