The drive to go digital, do more with less and getting buy-in for new initiatives puts stress on resources and staff.
The associations goal is to reduce cost, increase services and drive agility but investment in employees and recognition and support of volunteers has to be considered when trying to reach this goal.
Programs and applications need to be easy to use and accessible anywhere.
Get staff opinions and advice, post relevant information, find out sources and web sites used by staff, and stay engaged in conversations.
Your members are the association. Every so often, step back from your work and look at your Association as if you were one of your members. What would you tell them?
Management and human relations:
“The challenge for management is on how to integrate people so that they are inspired to work together effectively, with economic, social and psychological satisfaction.”
How do you integrate, motivate, encourage and develop a social atmosphere in today’s economic environment where people are expected to do more with less.
Ambivalence toward authority: People like freedom but feel lost if if they have too much – They need protection but not interference.
“Manager should minimize frustration, create conditions where people will accept authority with enthusiasm and no resentment.”
Lay down rules, set goals and seek to indoctrinate subordinates for organizational objectives – delegation.
The best manager is one who is sensitive to the needs of each situation and adjusts his Management Style.
