I was fortunate to attend ASAE’s Great Ideas conference at the lovely Broadmoor March 25th to 27th. I heard some great sessions, including one by John Kao on the connection between jazz composition and business innovation and thanks to Reggie Henry, better ways to use my iPad. I saw many friends and met some new contacts. One of my favorite encounters was with a colleague who had his toy terrier, Doc, in tow. I wish my dog were that portable. I also really loved the opportunity to speak on one of my favorite topics, organizational culture. It was fun leading a large room of 60 or so in an exercise to determine their cultures then strategize on enacting culture change.

Below is a copy of my presentation. Let me know, if your association’s culture is in fact eating your strategy for breakfast.
