Engaging and persuasive industry champions
Representing an often diverse set of stakeholders, associations and groups are essential advocates for the interests of their members and industry as a whole. Leaders in this sector must be able to champion advocacy to drive positive change for members and identify opportunities for improvement and growth. This requires outstanding relationship management and influencing abilities, combined with strong integrity, clarity of purpose and strategic insight.
Finding and developing successful industry association leadership requires a deep understanding of interpersonal skills and underlying aspiraitons. It depends on the ability to network widely to identify the exceptional mix of skills, experience and career aspirations that qualify prospective leaders, while also maintaining on-going engagement with a pipeline of prospective leaders of the future.
