Visionary Leadership: How Association Leaders Embrace Disruption in the 21st CenturyI recently had the exciting opportunity to sit down with my good friend Mary Byers, CAE to discuss my new book Visionary Leadership: How Association Leaders Embrace Disruption in the 21st Century.

Our conversation was captured in a podcast which will be available at 3pm CST June 12th.

In her Successful Associations Today interview series Mary and I discuss successful association leaders and how they’re prepared to handle complexities and disruptions in today’s ever changing world. My book, lays out what it takes to lead associations now. It’s designed to be a tool for driving boards and executive teams to new levels of performance, and a powerful resource for CEOs seeking to raise their game. The book includes a self-assessment covering 12 competencies sorted into 3 categories: Market Acumen, Association Leadership, and Personal Power. You’ll find stories, templates, strategies and tactics. And you will meet some well-known and exceptional CEOs—visionary leaders who have accomplished extraordinary things.
