Four Myths about Innovation in Associations

November 10, 2016
Guest Post

Guest post by Amanda Kaiser.  Association professionals say their association is not innovating because they are under-resourced, they don’t have the right ideas or don’t know how to prioritize between a bunch of great ideas, or the association’s stakeholders (leadership, staff, board, members) fear risk. These are challenges for sure, these are even the challenges the most innovative associations have had, but these challenges are not insurmountable. They should not be stopping us in our tracks. In fact, dig in and what we find are a handful of myths, myths uncovered in the 2016 Association Innovation Research Study, that are holding us back.

Do you need a Culture Code?

Do you have a great culture, but need a way to describe it? Do you know how to create your own Culture Code? Maybe you’re one of the 15 million people (yeah you read that right) who have flipped through Netflix’s culture deck.

In our culture work, we use our Workplace Genome to 1) provide our clients the most powerful themes that underlie what differentiates them, 2) tie their core values to real behaviors, and 3) identify and name underlying accelerators that they can now prioritize or inhibitors they can fix.  And as a result of this simple and deeply compelling three-step process, they now have, among many other things, a Culture Code artifact that they can then use to keep their culture top of mind with existing staff and to share with new hires and bring them into the fold.
