My next book, Visionary Leadership: How Association Leaders Embrace Disruption in the 21st Century, becomes available in hard copy June 7th.
It’s been a great pleasure not just to write it, but to design it. I love graphic design because (a) it adds a dimension to the content, and (b) it’s an art. That’s one reason I decided to self-publish this time.
Building Beehives: A Handbook for Creating Communities that Generate Returns, my first book, was custom designed graphically. It was a ton of fun!

Inside the book you will find:
- Case studies on Visionary Leaders like Susan Neely from her time with the American Beverage Association (now at The American Council of Life Insurers)
- Resources to help you assess and improve organizational leadership in three categories:
- Personal Power
- Association Leadership
- Market Acumen
- A chapter on real-time strategy – much different than the periodic assessments most organizations engage in
- And a chapter on Grand challenges – a way to demonstrate relevance to the outside world while making a positive impact.
