After Meeting Notes
We have about 20
financial members including new members and many more from South
Canterbury and outside this region on the waiting list
Plans for the Christmas function are well under way. We have
confirmed numbers for the night
Many people including
members are asking who to contact for this and who does what in
our organisation. If someone has something to contribute or say
please do make it known at one of the scheduled meetings. That
is the appropriate forum.
The best way to
support your organisation is to join in. Participate and then
you won't have to rely on the sometimes unreliable rumour mill
and grapevine for your information. Become a member today.
Everyone that has
attended and participated in the planning and the parties has
had a wonderful time. Come and see what you are missing.
Christmas party is
scheduled for the 10th of December.

the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative and creation there is
one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills
countless ideas and splendid plans:
moment one definitely commits oneself,
then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issue from the decision,
raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents
and meetings and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how
you made them feel.

From Chaos to Coherence
Coherent communication is based on four key principles:
1. Achieve understanding first
2. Listen nonjudgmentally
3. Listen for the essence
4. Be authentic
Doc Childre, Freeze-Frame
As you learn to Freeze-Frame
highly-charged emotions, you also learn to communicate directly
to people without the extra voltage that can cause them to be
defensive, while frying your nerves and draining your energy

must bring sides together.
Lance Secretan, Industry Week,

It would be really nice to see more members
