Four Myths about Innovation in Associations

November 11, 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?

November 9, 2016

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.

I'm losing track of the number of companies that are doing "new" things around giving employees more power and control. I don't think it counts as "new" any more, but is it new to you?

Maximizing Millennial Engagement

October 12, 2016
Maddie Grant

Millennials are the largest generation in the history of the United States--and half of them aren’t even in the workforce yet. That means the companies that figure out how to effectively engage this generation are going to gain a significant competitive advantage in the years to come, in the form of productivity gains, lower turnover, and more innovation. But this is not about foosball tables and gourmet cafeterias. It’s about a new approach to the workplace that makes more sense to this generation. In this webinar, Millennial and culture experts Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant will explore research from their book, When Millennials Take Over, and identify specific internal capacities that companies must develop to successfully engage Millennials. They’ll also reveal some ways that you can determine just how compatible your company’s culture is with this new generation and how that can unlock potential for growth.
