It has come like a thunderbolt. A large boom followed by a blinding light.
It’s as if we woke up from a long, long sleep.
Some of our most esteemed and successful associations woke up and discovered that the world around them has drastically changed. And the change keeps on coming.

Our old methods, 20th century association models, work routines and mindsets are no longer effective.
Change is no longer an event that we can plan for and roll out to our organization. It’s the regular heartbeat of life around us. It’s what the world marches to daily.
We need a new set of skills to be successful in the 21st century. We need to apply scientific insights to how we lead and how to help others face change.
How we face change, adopt it and adapt to its impact is critical to our organization’s success today. How we lead others to change is how we are successful or not.
Too many of our associations are out of balance.
We focus on numeric transactions, archaic measurements and scientific-sounding reassurances. We’ve got to bring balance back to our associations. We’ve got to develop empathy—not just walking in our customers’ shoes, but truly understanding what makes them tick. Empathy will bring back our balance. Strategic thinking will lead us to progress.
Our challenge is learning, unlearning and relearning.
