People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Just What Is Key Leader?

Immediate Past-Gov. Bert says it was THE one experience that really stood-out from his year traveling around the Rocky Mountain District. Governor Bob learned the value of Key Leader this past weekend, though he struggled to make those midnight room checks.

Key Leader is a weekend that teaches high schoolers leadership skills and team building. But to just leave it at that is really not an adequate description. KL is an experience that won’t soon be forgotten by those young people. Workshops taught 5 principles of leadership: Integrity, Growth, Respect, Community, and Excellence. Hands-on workshops gave the student participants the experience of building a team through communication and trust.

Student facilitators (who had taken the course before) were team leaders who not only built their team but also demonstrated Key Leader skills by example.

All of this happens in an atmosphere of mutual respect, personal growth and honesty. Sprinkled with spontaneous outbursts of dance and singing. Smiles… so many happy smiles.

Key Leaders learning who they are by challenging their values, working through physical challenges (like the spider rope pictured here) that got them out of their comfort zone. Teaching the young leaders how to communicate with others that might not share their personality type and to trust their new friends. Exercises that made them think, work together to achieve a group goal, discover who they are… who they want to be. GROW.

If your Kiwanis club isn’t sending kids to Key Leader, you really should volunteer or at least spend part of day at Key Leader. (Contact Key Leader chairwomen, Barb Fuller, for details.) It is a great program.
