    How CEOs can best manage their boards
    Harvard Business Review
    Leading up — helping those above us to lead well and achieve what we all want (namely, success for the enterprise) — is a critical skill for all employees, including executives at the top of the company pyramid. In an earlier era, CEOs were at the apex, accountable to no one. But as investors have become more powerful and boards more sovereign, CEOs have had to learn to manage not just downward through the ranks of their companies, but also up.

    By William D. Pawlucy
    In 2015, a large number of organizations will undergo some type of board change. But what happens to the "past" president of the organization?

    The leap leaders have to make
    The Demand Perspective
    Over the years, associations have evolved into educational and service organizations competing in the same sphere as a veritable deluge of diverse providers —from tightly focused and efficient training outfits to more strategic services like leadership development and consulting. Yet most associations, to one degree or other, seem to be diving into a fast-paced and fluid environment, with porous and shifting boundaries, from an organizational platform initially set up to represent and advocate for well-defined industry and professional spaces. Their fixed packages of benefits and programs pre-suppose stability and limited customer choices in an environment of multiple choices in which businesses have to be on constant alert—adapting to changes and delivering continuously new solutions rather than defending territory.
