Rob de Jong from Mind Transformations was our guest speaker tonight.
 
His business offers a range of unique services to help transform the way you think and to improve your life. Tonight we got to see first hand, the benefits of Hypnotherapy as a tool to help change something important in your life.
 
Hypnotherapy is more than those crazy stage shows we have all heard about. Whilst pretty much anyone can be hypnotized, it will only work with those who are permissive to the therapy. So when you see someone barking like a dog on a show, its because they have pretty much volunteered for anything to happen (mental expectancy before the event) except something that will endanger them.
 
Your protective mind is always awake and aware. An you can't make anyone do anything against their will or put them in danger. When ‘under’ our senses are actually enhanced, you are not asleep. Even if the therapist says ‘sleep’, it is just a trigger to go deeper into your trance. So no snoring.
Here are a few courses to consider: 
  • Rotary Club Central Resources includes a video and how-to guides for setting goals and understanding trends.
  • Rotary Foundation Basics explains the Foundation and its programs, grants, and funds. updated
  • Rotary’s Areas of Focus outlines goals, projects, and resources for each of Rotary’s areas of focus. 
  • Membership courses promote new strategies for recruiting members and enhancing clubs.

Our Rotary International Presidents theme this year is ‘Be The Inspiration’ and our District Governor Ingrid Waugh is wearing this theme on her sleeve. A charter member of the Rotary Club of Parnell, Ingrid is also well known to many of us through various District Committees and her role as Rotary Leadership Institute Chair for the District.
Having the advantage of having hear RI President Barry Rassin deliver his vision first hand at Convention in Toronto, it was very interesting from the Editors viewpoint to here how Ingrid was leveraging this along with her own goals to take our District a further step forward.
 
Goal One is about growing future leaders within our Clubs, District and the World. Something that Ingrid is passionate about and believes mentoring within and across our clubs is a key tool to growing our people. We also have a number of seminars coming up and Rotary International is also developing new training tools. Our Presidential Citation also is designed to as a key tool to assist our goal setting to achieve a successful outcome.

Rotary’s provides the framework for our future, ensuring that we continue to be known as a respected, dynamic organization that advances communities worldwide.

The strategic plan evolves with the aspirations of Rotarians. It is shaped by regular input from members through surveys, focus groups, committees, and meetings, so it can continue to help us achieve our goals.

In June, Rotary’s Board of Directors and Trustees approved a new vision statement for the organization:

“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

The new vision statement helps us set a future course so that Rotary can thrive in the years ahead. It reflects the impact Rotary aspires to have on the world and our members.

To get an unbiased perspective while we developed the vision statement, we worked with Grant Thornton, a consulting agency that specializes in planning and change management.
 

The following is the final few paragraphs of an article “Could you be the next RI President’ copied from The Rotarian magazine. Author Vanessa Glavinskas

MYTH: Women aren’t welcome. 

After the 2018-19 Board was announced, The Rotarian magazine received a spike in letters expressing concern about the lack of women directors and wondering when Rotary will elect its first woman president. Rotarian Monica Smith wrote, “It pains me to see how little concrete action appears to be taken at many other clubs locally, nationally, and internationally to recruit, support, and promote women members, not to mention officers.” Texas Rotarian Sarah Carriker wrote, “If the leaders of Rotary really wanted more women in Rotary, there would be more women in leadership roles.”

Past RI President Riseley says the lack of women on the Board is unfortunate: “It indicates to the world and Rotary that there’s no place for women in Rotary – and that’s completely incorrect.”

Smith, a member of the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C., says her club’s strategies to diversify its membership could serve as a model for the organization. The club has attracted young professionals by enacting programs such as its “Rule of 35,” which offers discounted membership fees for new members under age 35. It also relaxed attendance requirements and moved club meetings to evenings to accommodate young professionals who can’t meet for lunch. “Making a program indicates you’re trying,” she says. Over the past few years, she says, club members have also made an effort to invite more women. That effort has paid off as those new members invite their friends. Now the club is about 40 percent women, and it has members from 30 countries.
