Summary transcript for 31 Oct 2013 #AWCchat: Leadership Development

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 72nd #AWCChat on Twitter, on leadership development, aka “getting people to step up.”

Here is what we discussed:

1)  Why is it so hard sometimes to get people to step up to leadership positions (especially in volunteer organizations?)

2)  Does a web-connected world require different leadership skills for organizations & associations?

We filled the whole hour just talking about these two!

**  Chat schedule and topics for October 2013.  (November chat schedule coming soon – no chat on 7 November.)

2)  What are some of the characteristics that make up a great leader?

3)  How do you integrate leadership & management in your leadership role? (Can day-to-day managers also be true leaders?)

Summary transcript for 23 May 2013 #AWCchat: Finding and Being a Mentor

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 55th #AWCChat on Twitter, about mentoring.

Here is what we discussed:

1)  What does the term “mentor” mean to you? Is it a buzzword, or is there real meat behind it?

2)  If “everyone says” you should have a mentor (or 2) then how does one acquire this magic person?  🙂

3)  If you’re in a position to be a mentor yourself, what holds you back?

Don’t miss all of the helpful how-to Resource links we tweeted, either.
