Stepping Into the Hot Seat

Posted By David T. Norman CMC-A, Wednesday, May 11, 2011

It’s been a whirlwind over the past week. It started with the Leadership Summit in Chicago on Thursday and Friday, which had great participant energy and engagement and several inspirational and informative speakers. Friday was also about the Annual Meeting of the Membership and the installation of Directors, Officers and the new Chair, me. Saturday, the new and existing Board members had a day-long meeting, one of about four to five we have during the year. Finally, on Saturday, several of us were off to Toronto for an ICMCI America’s Hub meeting.

Over the next series of blogs (aka, Message from the Chair) I will not only update you as to the results of these events but also to share my vision of the future.

But, first, a big Thanks to the membership. The Board you have elected (more in a later blog) is an extremely well-balanced, thoughtful and diligent one. The individual members of the Board demonstrated a commitment to you, the member of IMC USA, and a belief in both the Institute and, indeed, the management consulting profession as a whole. You elected a great slate of Board members which complement the existing members.

And, second, as we progress on our journey together, reach out to me, or for that matter, any member of the Board, with ideas, suggestions, and possibilities. We are open to the conversations that follow.

The next blog will to put a background on the ‘why I am here.’ Stay tuned.

My best,

Great Leadership Summit meeting (my first) last week. I met lot of new interesting folks and found all the presentations very valuable and interesting. Kudos to you, Judith, Gail and everyone else for putting this on!

Thank you David. We missed you on Monday in Greensboro. We had an excellent meeting with Henry Hutcherson describing his company (did you know his grandfather was Olin Mills?), a well presented and helpful talk on asking for what we are worth for our work from Abbey Donnally and a talk about the use of social media at the giant company IBM from Martha Gibson, Global Services. And of course, as usual, lots of good networking opportunities. Julia Simmons

Thanks, only with you all can we fulfill our brand promise. Let's take this journey together. Remember, that the world is now too dangerous a place and too small of a place for anything but truth.. Never sell yourself short. Risk something big for something good.

Happy journey and good evening,

David ~ your post is very reassuring and inspiring. We haven't met, but just based on this post and what it communicates to me of your values and wisdom, I have great confidence in you as our new Chair. I look forward to your leadership.
