  • Fear is the real innovation-killer
    To succeed as innovators, workers first need to conquer their fears, Jorge Barba writes. To spur that process, bosses should champion creative ideas and make it clear that everyone's perspective is important and valuable. "If everyone agrees with each other, that is a bad sign. Dissent is good when it leads to constructive criticism," Barba writes. InnovationExcellence.com (1/9) Email this Story

It's more important to be proactive, training workers thoroughly and then trusting them to do their jobs well. "Overemphasis on the punitive aspects can be counterproductive, especially if it's in sharp contrast with the way employees are otherwise treated," Rothman writes.

About NBC-CAM
The National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM) is a 17-year-old independent board that sets the standards for community association managers worldwide. The board administers the Certified Manager of Community Associations® (CMCA) examination, a rigorous, three-hour test that measures managers’ knowledge of community management best practices. Passing the CMCA examination and maintaining the standards of the CMCA certification is proof that a manager is a knowledgeable, ethical and professional. CMCA-certified managers have the skills to safeguard the assets of homeowners’ associations, giving homeowners peace of mind and protecting home values.

The CMCA credential is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which means it complies with NCCA’s stringent international standards for a professional certification program. NCCA accreditation provides independent validation that the CMCA program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose, structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures. Accreditation validates the integrity of the CMCA program and is a mark of quality.
