Why should my fellow Rotarians come to the Leadership Retreat? 
Why should my fellow Rotarians come to the Leadership Retreat? 
And what they will get out of it...personally, professionally, and as club members.

Here’s a partial list how I answered this: 
First: It’s interesting, useful and fun—much more so than I expected.
Plus, here were my other reasons, and I hope some of them will resonate with you:
  • To become a better, more well-informed Rotarian.
  • To learn about different aspects of leadership in a Rotary context.
  • To share what I can about leadership to benefit the club and fellow Rotarians
  • To share other learning experiences with fellow Rotarians.
  • To get to know fellow Rotarians better and appreciate their strengths more.
  • To use our collective wisdom to “benefit of all concerned.” (e.g., the 4-way test).
A few additional thoughts on why people who are “undecided” might decide to sign up and attend the Rotary Leadership Retreat:
  • The human mind,  once stretched, never returns to its original condition.
  • Training & learning are investments on which the return is infinite—and recipients get to keep them forever!
  • What is learned in one context (Rotary leadership) is beneficial in many other aspects of life and career.
  • Learning and sharing ideas is “synergistic:” (If we each have one dollar and exchange them, we each still have only one dollar. But if we each have an idea and share them, we both have two ideas.) That’s a win-win proposition.

    I hope that one or more of the items listed above will help you decide to come! Sign up right now by calling Scott at 614-221-3127! 
Respectfully submitted, your fellow Rotarian and past attendee.. (I hope to see you there.)
