Bethesda, MD, September 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Seth Kahan led a one-hour general session, “Deep Dive Into Bold Leadership for Challenging Times” at the Texas Society of Association Executives New Ideas Annual Conference on Monday, September 12, in Houston, TX. Association CEO leaders from across the US were in attendance.
Kahan, a change leadership expert, bestselling author and highly regarded speaker, shared guidance on how to take advantage of the down economy and drive business growth that achieves both member value and financial returns.
“There are three important areas undergoing rapid change in today's associations,” says Kahan. “They include: 1) association models are changing, as traditional offerings are replaced by technology tools and the private sector; (2) industries are going through rapid innovation and many are being upended; and (3) members are battling marketplace pressures and this is forcing them to make tough decisions about how to allocate their resources.” He continues, “Leadership in this complex environment is anything but easy. With rapid change, risk rises. It's hard to plot a strategy far into the future, but bold leaders can do it.”
Kahan’s session covered strategies for bold leadership in challenging times including discussion on appropriate responses to today's disruptive conditions, including case studies; leadership competencies for CEOs to lead through the current tumultuous environment; and customized recommendations for each participant based on their shared circumstances and needs.
