Health is important
Health is important

  • Healthy People feel happier, make others feel happier, handle stress better and accomplish more.

  • A Rotary Club is really just a group of people. And it may be healthier if its people are healthier, or not. The club is a social SYSTEM with a lot of people characteristics. The system can be healthy or it can be sick.

George Bullard and others…

  • Studied churches and observed that life cycles of churches are related to 4 characteristics or elements. The mix of these four elements directly affects health and vitality.

Motivation on what side of the hill is your club
Motivation: On what side of the hill is your club?

  • Incline – Visions of what a club can become

  • Decline – Visions of what once was

    • But a club can’t go back in time

    • A club can positively go forward if it is willing

    • But can it handle the stress?


Without vision
Without Vision

  • “…the people perish…”

  • No change

  • No stress

  • No exciting future

  • No raison d'être

  • Things are smooth and predictable

  • The club heads towards death


Without relational health
Without Relational Health

  • Disconnected club

  • No family sense

  • No belonging

  • No appreciation for a job well done

  • No encouragement to aspire

  • No reason to join, and no reason to stay

  • Never missed


Without projects
Without Projects

  • “old boys club”

  • Lots of talk, no action

  • Begin to believe that a rotary club is one that knows how but isn’t expected to actually do

  • Discomfort becomes primary fear, yet the comfort itself becomes distasteful


Without management
Without Management

  • Unnecessary mistakes happen

    • Leading to unhealthy stress

    • Blaming

  • Distrust of the leadership or of any innovative idea

  • Even good innovations don’t attain great results, nor great participation

  • Volunteers are more difficult to get


Healthy balance
Healthy Balance

  • Need a balance of ALL 4, ALL healthy

  • Sometimes leaders need to emphasize one or the other… (see later sessions this afternoon)

Resistance
Resistance

  • What causes resistance

    • V initiatives always lead to some resistance – apathy or non-participation is the last resort of the powerless

  • The goal for V leadership is to make maximum use of R and M

    • Use R-building techniques to develop the initiative and to carry it out

    • Use M-tools such as communication and financials and timeliness


Leadership
Leadership

  • Every leader has a personal orientation or preference. (Think about the political leaders right now.) Each person, generally, has a driving preference and a supporting preference.

  • What is your primary strength?

  • What is your secondary strength?
