An afternoon with the incoming president: Planning the year
from By Robert C. Harris
Success for the incoming president is crucial. An afternoon discussion with him or her prior to taking office will enhance understanding, performance and outcomes. To gauge president-elect's preparedness, I ask, "What are your goals? What do you intend to achieve?" Too often the response is silence, an admission of procrastination and a potpourri of tactics mixed with personal plans. I anticipated the future leader would answer with a clear, concise statement built on the mission, members' needs and organizational success.
