Aligning Leadership, Staff, and Community to Drive Innovation and Growth

Associations increasingly find themselves in a competitive environment where they must continually evaluate their relevance and impact to their communities.  This creates the need to constantly innovate while managing day to day challenges.  Creative thought requires an entrepreneurial mindset and a freeing from the daily grind we all feel each day. 

To support a movement towards innovation in leadership, CommPartners along with our experts, Mary Byers, Dave Will and Melissa Schreibstein, have created the Advancing Leadership Webinar Series. This series is designed to help you identify specific tactics to enhance your performance, improve creativity and lead with clarity and conviction. We will specifically address how to develop a culture of leadership and innovation, giving you strategies to engage your community and strengthen your resilience.
