Division and Area Director Training (DOT#1)A few take-outs

  • Remember the member -when members and guests flourish everything else follows
  • Excellence is build from the foundations up
  • Communicate clearly, concisely, and convivially
  • It is a hobby -keep it fun
  • Excellence is the next five minutes…the next conversation…the next email… or it is nothing at all (Tom Peters)
