Quick clicks: Straight talk
Happy Friday! Here is your weekly roundup of interesting posts from the association blogging community and elsewhere.
Eric Lanke at the Hourglass Blog asks if youâ€™re still the right person for your job.
In a guest post on the Socialfishing blog, Leslie White offers some straight talk about riskâ€”specifically, the risk of lost opportunities, specifically relating to social media (although what she has to say can certainly be applied elsewhere).
The Signal to Noise blog has some equally straight talk about planning: â€œThe only plan you should make is to plan on improvising.â€
Wes Trochlil points out what Iâ€™m going to call the â€œoffice kitchen conundrumâ€: â€œThat which no one owns, no one will care for.â€
Tony Rossell continues to explore the question â€œWhat is one thing an association marketing team must do, if nothing else?â€
The Challenge Management blog muses on the strange profession of association management (and hiring people who can be successful at it).
Kerry Stackpole at the Wired 4 Leadership blog has some thoughts on exclusivity, inclusivity, and social media.
Sherry Jennings at the Sound Governance blog has posted a case study on how a nonprofit can work to avoid a crisis if a major source of funding dries up.
At the Forum Effect blog, Doug Eadie shares some insights on the role of the CEO as chief board developer.
I love this: Michele Martin at the Bamboo Project blog has a great story about how a professor energized his class by lying to them (no, really). (She also recently posted a great roundup of resources on accessible learning.)
