When faced with new or changing circumstances, adept sailors ”trim the sails” to steer their boats more smoothly into the wind. John Maxwell reminds us in the this quote that leaders adopt similar practices.
“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”
On June 20, the District Executive Committee (departing and incoming) will meet online for a day organized to:
– facilitate the transition
– introduce us to specific roles and responsibilities
– provide insights into the team
– strengthen relationships
– remind us that “in every job that must be done there is an element of fun.”
As D42’s Executive Committee, it is valuable to know each others’ Leadership and Communication Styles.
