Is your association courageous enough to ask for advice?
Avectra
In a recent post, Deirdre Reed wrote, "Last week, I saw the hashtag #SHRMAdvice in a tweet from Laurie Ruettimann, a HR thought leader, speaker and writer.

Leading under pressure
By C. Fredrick Crum
Yes, it has been said that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. The question is how do they get going? How do leaders respond when they are under pressure? We are not referring to physical pressure, like that which is exerted on a professional weightlifter. We are referring to pressure — the invisible mental state causing stress. A leader's true colors come out when he or she is under pressure, especially extreme pressure.

Are you cut out for the CEO role?
Entrepreneur
Good CEOs are made, not born. But the same can't always be said for founders. A founder has a vision and a passion for her product or service, and she can inspire her customers, employees and investors to believe in her idea's potential. A founder believes so much in her vision that she'll ride out uncertainty and failure to see her idea succeed. But these skills don't always make for a great CEO. In small startups, founders often double as CEOs, at least at first. With the right skills, you may be able to fill both roles, but at some point, you'll have to figure out if being the founder and the CEO is helping or hurting your company's growth.

Are you a leader or a manager? There's a difference
Inc.
Leaders aren't always managers and vice versa. It is a rare individual that is both of these things. They have very different skill sets, both critical to success at a high-growth business. Understanding who your leaders are and who your managers are will help you create an organizational structure that not only addresses core business functions and needs but also morale and culture, which are equally if not more important.

Omnipress Big Ideas Blog
There seems to be a good number of associations that are stuck in the past and are missing out on leveraging their valuable content by offering it online, because a "higher-up" is stuck in their ways and doesn't see value in offering the content online.
