Last meeting 8/21/17 by Andy Rebuck
What is going on? Oh, my, this is really cool…. What? What am I doing? Well, I am checking out the solar eclipse of course but sure I can write the minutes of the Rotary Club of Harrisburg meeting on August 21st at the same time as long as we can use the word “SOLAR” to outline our meeting.
“S” must stand for Super and School as it was a Super start to our meeting with President Sam banging the gavel at exactly 12:12 and Rotarians’ Stewart and Pieper offering invocation and club singing and Rotarian Hafer introducing a guest each for President Sam and Rotarians’ Judson, Phillips, Zalewski and Kaunas.
“O” is obviously for Outstanding as Rotarian Dumaresq introduced our exchange student Sarah from Belgium and we even sang happy 18th birthday to her. Welcome Sarah. Our club was also reminded about the invitation to attend movie night at Whitaker center on Wednesday.
“L” can only be short for “LOL” as President Sam introduce Czar Bob by saying he eclipses all Program Chairs in our District….
“A” is absolutely for Awesome and that is what our Program Czar and Program speaker were today as we got a real proverbial shot of vitamin C revolving around Great Leadership based on Servant Leadership. Our speaker, Jim Rowell was energetic and engaged and on target in noting the dynamics of our ever changing business landscapes.
Jim pointed out that by 2025 Millennials will be the majority of our workforce; that 71% of workers today are not engaged or actively disengaged; and the # 1 reason employees quit is a poor relationship with their direct supervisor.
The good news is his book and training series provides “The 10 Keys to effective Supervision” by encouraging leaders to put others before themselves in ten ways that spell out the word Supervisor: Support Growth, United Team, Praise Others, Expect Excellence, Require Acceptability, Value What You Believe, Instill Independence, Share Continually, Optimize ownership and Realign Your Efforts.
“R” stands for Rotary and President Sam ushered us out at exactly 1”04 after repeating Four Way Test and knowing that we all had to get to a vantage point to enjoy the Solar Eclipse….
